Grab bag skits are a creative way for employees to use their imagination as groups take turns acting out skits based on random objects out of a grab bag. After all skits are performed, employees vote for the best performance. Take what you need starts out with an air of mystery. As a roll of toilet paper passes among the group, each person is told to take what she needs, which means one or more individual sheets. For each sheet of paper taken, a personal fact must be shared with the group.

Binder clip tag can be played anytime of the day. This game only requires a single binder clip and willing participants. The game begins when one employee stealthily pins the designated office clip onto her office co-worker. Once the clip is discovered, that worker must find another co-worker to tag with the clip. An office treasure hunt involves giving employees clues about where to look for hidden objects. Clues, objects and hiding spots are decided by a team.
