Post-it Sticky Notes Fun

In Your Home

-

A Post-it note is a small piece of paper with a strip of low-tack adhesive on the back that allows it to be temporarily attached to documents, walls, computer monitors, and just about anything else. Not only are sticky notes versatile and great to organize your ideas, they can be utilized to make fun games and art. Grab your sticky note pad and get ready for creative and fun sticky note games for kids. The great thing about these ideas is that all you need is the sticky note pad and a pen.

Sticky notes games

Try these sticky note games that you can play with one stack of Post-it notes:
Secret Questions
On the back of post it notes (i.e. the sticky side), write some good get-to-know you questions. Stick them all on a whiteboard or wall so you cannot see the question on the back. Each person must come up the front, peel a postit note off the wall and answer the question on the back. 
Two Truths and a Lie
Give each person three post-it notes. This game involves people writing something about themselves on each note - two should be true and one should be a lie. All three are shared with the group and then everyone tries to identify which Post-it note contains the lie.
Who am I?
Write the names of someone famous or well known to the group on a Post-it note and stick it on the back of each person. People then have to guess who is on their back by asking only yes or no questions. 
Animal Farm
Give each person a card or post-it note with the name of a farm animal on it (e.g. Cow, Pig, Horse, Sheep, etc). To find the rest of their group, they must make the sound of the animal from their card, and then assemble into groups based on their animal (i.e. all the pigs together, all the sheep, etc).
All Stars
A great way of encouraging people in your group, this game involves drawing a self portrait. The group then uses Post-It notes to stick encouraging comments on the portrait.
