Have you ever put a paper plate on your head?

Probably not (soberly anyway)


Have you ever put a paper plate on your head and attempted to draw a picture on it? 

No? Why not?!

It’s time to do so! 😁



What is the team building activity with paper plates?


The team building activity with paper plates is, quite simply, where you get a paper plate, stick it on your head, and attempt to draw a picture on it!

It gets teams looking like this 👇 😁

Paper Plate Drawing Game Instructions


It’s a fun and brilliant bitesize activity. It can take less than 5 minutes. Below are video and written instructions 👇


You will need:

📍 1 paper plate per person

📍 1 pen per person


📍 Step 1 – Instruct everyone to put their paper plate on their head 

📍 Step 2 – Instruct everyone to draw a picture on the paper plate. You can pick what picture they draw. Maybe you’re talking about customer care and you can get everyone to draw a smiling customer. Or if it’s Easter, get them to draw an Easter egg

📍 Step 3 – Instruct everyone to write their name underneath their drawing

📍 Step 4 – Give them 1 minute and get them to draw!

📍 Step 5 – After 1 minute, ask everyone to remove the plate and show to everyone around them 

Team bonding benefits to this game:

⚡️ Everyone’s drawing will be funny, so no one will feel awkward about their lack of artistic ability

⚡️ Everyone will have a great laugh about each other’s drawings

⚡️ It challenges brains in a unique way

From Aaron & Team Laughtercise


Whether you’re looking for a unique hen do idea for your hen crew or a corporate team building workshop for your team, a Laughtercise session is all about creating as many smiles and laughter in your group as humanely possible!

We’ve scoured the world for the best exercises, activities and games that bring out smiles and giggles.

We would love to tell you that we’ve invented loads of activities but we haven’t invented ANYTHING. We’ve taken the best that exists, combined it together and made it better…our very own original recipe.

Simple ideas, simple games, all facilitated expertly.

We deliver sessions in-person or online.

Is your room small? Is it large? Inside? Outside? We’ll be there! We will work around you.

For team building sessions, we can come to your office or away day location. For hen parties, we can come to your accommodation or a private room that you’ve booked.

📍 Our Corporate Team Building Workshops vary from 10-minute energising conferences sessions to full away day sessions of 4hs

📍 Our Corporate Wellbeing Workshops can vary in length from 1hr to 3hrs

📍 Our Online Team Building Workshops can vary in length from 30mins to 1.5hrs

📍 For online sessions, the attendee limit is 1000.

📍 For in-person sessions, the only limit is how much room you have (the more the merrier!)

Our prices vary depending on the number of attendees, how long the session is for and where the session is held.

We can guarantee you this though…in terms of bang for buck, you’ll get a sonic boom 💥

Let’s get some time to discuss, get in touch 😀

Our Corporate Team Building Workshops have been described as ‘the most fun I’ve ever had at work’ by Amazon employees and in a recent NHS study, 77% of NHS session attendees reported feeling less stressed after their Laughtercise session.

Hens love Laughtercise too 👇

“It was so good, everyone loved it. We all highly recommend, the Laughtercise Team are an absolute dream. It was INCREDIBLE”

But the only way to truly find out, is to dive in and get smiling! 😁

We will rock your world ⚡

Yes, loads!
