Foot Script Teen Party Game

Bring on the Feet and the Fun!

Do you have a room full of teenagers and nothing to do? Why not play foot script? It's fun, simple and all you need are some washable markers and feet. I guarantee you it will get the party started, break the ice and have people giggling non-stop. So don't just stand there, kick you r socks off and get ready to do some foot scripting!

Foot Script?

When I first heard about foot script I thought it was a recipe for disaster: markers, ticklish feet, and a room full of screaming girls, but it actually turned out to be a recipe for fun. The instructions are simple. Here's how to play:

Basic Foot Script Game

Materials: Washable markers, feet, timer, wet wipes (in case things get a little messy)

  1. Take off your socks.
  2. Pick a partner.
  3. Put a marker between the toes of one partner
  4. Set the timer for one minute
  5. Have your partner write your name on your foot.
  6. When the timer goes off, it's the other person's turn.
  7. The most legible name wins!

Variations on the Basic Foot Script Game

The girls had so much fun with the basic foot script game that we came up with some variations to keep the good times rolling. Here are a few you could try:

Foot Script Puppets

Set the timer for five minutes and give everyone a ton of markers to create foot puppet masterpieces with their partner. Again the idea is that you are drawing on your partners feet with your feet. The best looking puppet wins.

Foot Script Pictionary

This is the foot script game my girls spent the longest on. It's just like the regular pictionary game, but instead of using your hands you use a foot to draw pictures on paper and have your team guess. Obviously it's best to keep the pictures simple, like a one word animal or person.

Foot Script Mural

If you are feeling really ambitious why not put some paper up on the wall, some newspaper on the floor and let your foot Picassos loose with some paint? They can opt to use brushes or dip their toes in and get creative. This is bound to get messy, but the picture opps alone would be worth it.

Foot Script Math

Okay, I admit it, this was my idea not their's...and they did like it for a little bit. In my desperate attempt to get my children to love math, I thought that the idea of doing it with their feet might make it more appealing. It was fun at first until they discovered I was making them learn and then they wanted nothing to with it. I almost had them back at it with the promise of letting them use our giant novelty calculator to work out the harder problems, but no dice. Oh well back to foot script pictionary I guess. Maybe I could get them to play a prominent figures in world history version.

Fun and Simple

So there you have it, foot script, a fun and easy game that won't break the bank and may lure your teens away from their cell phones and get them having fun. Often the best games are the simplest ones, and foot script is no exception to the rule. So what are you waiting for? Grab a marker, yank off those smelly socks and shoes and get scripting!

      It sounded great until you said 'math'! Seriously, I think my daughter would like this. Not sure about my 14 year old son - he doesn't expose any part of his body except hands and face :-)

      I know, I know, math is not popular at my house at all. Seems to be a game that girls enjoy, you're right I can't see teen boys loving it as much.

      My teenaged nephew began writing on his hands once he started high school. I always thought this was funny. Maybe he was playing a version of this game all along. :)

      I have to admit I drew all over myself and my jeans when I was a teen. I guess I was just playing my own version of this game too. Thanks for reading and commenting.

      I would not encourage my kids to write on themselves, tattoos are for adults who are of age, not for kids. I don't even think "fake" tattoos are good for kids. I'm not a fan of this.

      Very interesting perspective. I hadn't thought of it this way, especially because it involves the use of washable markers. I think the second you make something taboo it makes it that much more appealing to children. Thanks for commenting and contributing a different viewpoint. Much appreciated.
