Some sites that offer ideas for bonfire games and activities include About.com, Fun-Stuff-To-Do.com and BabyBackGrill.com. Popular bonfire activities include Telephone, Two Truths and a Lie and telling scary stories.
Telephone is the classic communication game in which one player begins by devising a message and whispering it into the next player?s ear. The message travels from player to player around the bonfire, inevitably transforming as it goes. Once the message makes its way to the final player, that person says the phrase out loud, typically with hilarious results. The game can be repeated until every player has a chance to create a phrase.
Two Truths and a Lie is another enduring bonfire game in which players take turns making three statements about themselves. While two of the statements are true, one of them is not, and it is up to the other players to determine which is which. The game typically benefits when players share the most outlandish facts about themselves.
Telling scary stories is another common bonfire activity that can be fun for groups of all ages. Participants can take turns telling their favorite tales or the group can try for a collaborative story. For a collaboration, one player starts the story and everyone else around the bonfire takes turns adding a new line.
