Here are five low & no prep team building games suitable for fashion and beauty schools. Each game promotes teamwork, communication, and camaraderie among students, all while requiring minimal to no preparation from the teacher.

1. Fortune Finders

Let’s start with my favorite game, Fortune Finders. It is perfect for practicing quick thinking and teamwork in a fun and engaging way. Teams or individuals must work together or independently to answer questions correctly and make strategic decisions about which spots to select on the game board. This encourages strategic thinking and can generate a healthy competitive environment.

The teacher does not need to prepare anything, as the game boards and questions are pre-prepared and reusable. This means the teacher can introduce the game and start playing.

How to Play

  1. Divide the class into teams or allow students to play solo.
  2. Each team or individual selects a game board with hidden points and surprises.
  3. The teacher asks a prepared question. If the team or individual answers correctly, they choose a spot on the board.
  4. The teacher reveals what’s behind the chosen spot — points or a surprise. Points are added to the team’s or individual’s total score.
  5. Continue until all questions are answered or all spots are unveiled. The team or individual with the highest score wins.

2. Fashion Relay

This game enhances communication and collaborative decision-making skills among students. Students are divided into teams. Each team must dress a team member using various fashion items like scarves, hats, and accessories available in the classroom. They have a set time limit, and the dressed team member must showcase the outfit once the time is up. Teams are judged on creativity, speed, and teamwork. This game encourages students to collaborate creatively and quickly under pressure.

The teacher only needs to ensure the required items are accessible in the classroom. No further setup or preparation is needed.

How to Play

  1. Split students into teams. Provide each team with a selection of fashion items.
  2. On the teacher’s signal, the first member of each team picks an item and dresses one designated team member with it.
  3. The next team member then adds another item, which continues until the team member is fully dressed or reaches the time limit.
  4. Once the time is up, each dressed team member showcases the outfit. Judges or the class vote on the outfits based on creativity, use of items, and overall look.
  5. The team with the most creative or well-put-together outfit wins.

3. Style Swap

In Style Swap, students pair up and swap a fashion item they wear with their partner. Each pair then discusses why they chose the item and what they appreciate about their partner’s style. This activity helps build mutual respect and understanding among students, enhancing interpersonal relationships and teamwork.

No preparation is needed. Students use their accessories or clothing, and the teacher facilitates the discussion.

How to Play

  1. Pair up students. Each pair swaps one accessory or item of clothing with their partner.
  2. Each student discusses their chosen item, explaining why they like it and what it says about their style.
  3. Partners share with the rest of the class or within their pair, depending on class size, to create a deeper understanding and appreciation of different fashion choices.
  4. The exercise can conclude with a group discussion on style diversity and personal expression in fashion.

4. Pose-Off Challenge

Build confidence and teamwork while encouraging students to think creatively under pressure. Students form teams, and each team takes turns creating the most original or daring pose related to a given theme (e.g., high fashion, streetwear). This can be done with props or costumes found in the classroom. Teams vote on the best pose, not voting for themselves, creating a friendly, competitive environment.

Gather any props or items available in the classroom. The teacher can use existing materials without setting anything up in advance.

How to Play

  1. Divide the class into small teams.
  2. Assign a theme for the poses, such as high fashion, vintage, or futuristic.
  3. Give teams a few minutes to plan and prepare their pose using props or costumes available in the classroom.
  4. Each team takes turns performing their pose in front of the class.
  5. After all teams have presented, conduct a vote (teams cannot vote for themselves) to decide which team created the most original or best-executed pose based on the theme.
  6. The winning team can be awarded points or a small prize.

5. Beauty Product Shuffle

This game involves students grouping into small teams. Each team receives a random beauty product from a bag. Without preparing in advance, each team must discuss and then present a quick tutorial or sales pitch for their product, highlighting its benefits and unique features. Teams learn from each other and support one another through the creative process.

The teacher needs to ensure there’s a collection of beauty products available that can be sourced from the classroom inventory. No additional preparation is needed as students use these existing resources.

How to Play

  1. Prepare a bag with various beauty products.
  2. Divide students into teams and have each team draw a product from the bag.
  3. Teams spend a few minutes discussing their product and preparing a brief tutorial or sales pitch.
  4. Each team presents their pitch to the class, explaining the benefits and uses of the product.
  5. Optionally, the class or a panel of judges can vote on the most informative or creative presentation.
  6. Points can be awarded based on creativity, knowledge, and presentation skills.
