10 Minute Tutor Time Activities!

What can you do in class for 10-minutes?


The 3 form time ideas below all separately take around 5 minutes to complete. So, if you have 5 or 10 minutes to fill, you can take your pick from which ones you want to do. Perfect for 10-minute tutor time activities!


What to do during Tutor Time?


Whatever you do, make it fun! Pick some tutor time activities that will create smiles and help everyone connect.

Below we’ve outlined 3 form time ideas (some are hilariously funny!) that will make you stand out and be loved by your students. From our activities you will get:

📍 A unique opportunity for personal development from your students

📍 An energy boost for students ahead of any ‘deep thinking’

We’ve delivered our 10 minute tutor time activities to children and young adults in 84 countries. We work with one of the world’s leading online schools and our form time ideas are proven to help children and young adults to bond through fun. They also boost student concentration levels and, most importantly, they create smiles 😁😁😁


Tutor Time Activity 1


Have you ever put a piece of card on your head and attempted to draw a picture? No? Well, the time to do it is now! This game will create an abundance of smiles! In the below instruction video, we talk through this tutor time activity while using a paper plate. However, a piece of card will work fine.


You will need:

📍 1 piece of card per student

📍 1 pen per student

📍 A theme


📍 Step 1 – Instruct students to put their piece of card on their head 

📍 Step 2 – Instruct everyone to draw a picture on to the card. You can pick what they draw. If it’s Easter, you could get them to draw an Easter egg. When Santa’s in town, you can get them to draw a Christmas tree

📍 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 card and show to everyone around them 

Energising benefits to this game:

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

⚡️ Everyone will have a great laugh about each other’s drawings (great for student bonding)

⚡️ It challenges students brains in a unique way (great to energise them ahead of a school day!)


There you go. One of our form time ideas that’s head (pun intended) and shoulders above other activities! 😄


Tutor Time Activity 2


Your students (and teachers!) will LOVE this game. They will remember it for years. It is wild and exhilarating! It creates a huge amount of excitement (and competition!).

Check out several teams playing this game 👇


You will need:

📍 Paper cups (1 per two students)

📍 To line up tables so students can be facing each other (like in the video)


📍 Instruct each student to face another student

📍 Tell students that you will be shouting out ‘head’, ‘shoulders’ and ‘knees’ and they have to follow the instruction

📍 Tell students that when you shout ‘cup’, they have to grab the cup. First person to grab it wins!

📍 Rotate students so they don’t continually face the same person

Energising benefits to this game:

⚡️ Students concentration levels will be on point when you’re shouting the instructions!

⚡️ Instructed well, this activity has huge potential to bond students through fun competition


Tutor Time Activity 3


Want to do some activities that will help students to grow?

Well, these two tutor time activities (a 2-for-1 deal for you!) will actually help students brains grow FACT. These two activities are parallel bi-manual movements and doing these kinds of exercises helps grow the corpus callosum part of our brain. A video tutorial is below 👇


You will need:

📍 Nothing! This game can be played anytime and anywhere!

Instructions for first activity:

📍 Get students to do a ‘thumb up’ with their right hand

📍 Get students to point their left index finger at their ‘thumb up’

📍 Switch hands! Do ‘thumb up’ on left hand and index finger pointing with right hand

📍 Keep switching! It’s harder than it sounds!

Instructions for second activity:

📍 Get students to do the ‘perfect’ sign with their right hand

📍 Get students to do the ‘perfect’ sign with their right hand AND a ‘peace’ sign with their left hand

📍 Switch hands!

📍 Keep switching! It’s harder than it sounds!


We hope you enjoy doing these 10 minute tutor time activities with your students 😁

Love the Laughtercise Team


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!
