Need a fun, easy game for a group of women? This is a great one! I’ve played What’s in Your Purse? several times at church ladies’ functions.
It’s super simple to set up. I’ve done all the work for you. Establish a date and time, provide some refreshments, and tell the women ahead of time to bring their purses.
How to Play
You can divide the ladies into smaller groups if needed. Give each one a copy of this game, and explain a few rules. Keep them super simple for more fun.
Undoubtedly, a few are going to ask if they get a point for each item they find in their purse. For instance, they may have multiple pens, which is a list item. You can decide if they add a point for each one or just for the grouping. Look through the list ahead of time and decide to avoid changing the rules after you start.
Since this printable game has a variety of points and categories, the math could get a little intense. So you may want to opt for simple addition.
I added more categories and points to add more fun to the game. What’s in Your Purse? isn’t as fun if you’re only hunting for a few items.
After the women have had a chance to go through their purses and tally points, you can offer a reward for the most points.
It’s also fun to see who has the strangest item in their purse. Once when we played this activity, a friend who is completely organized all the time found a very dry, petrified muffin liner. It still had chocolate mix remnants on it and was a crusty mess. We laughed when she pulled it out to show us, and we unanimously voted her to win the overall prize.
Various What’s In Your Purse? Themes
Designed as is, this game is perfect for bridal showers and many women’s gatherings. I’ve also designed slight variations to fit a baby shower theme and the Christmas season. So feel free to check out those options as well. CLICK HERE to visit my shop.
Put your own creative spin on this fun game. If you play it with this printable, I’d love to hear how it went. Parties and gatherings are so important. We need each other. Why not laugh and have a great time while we’re at it!
