Have you ever struggled to figure out what kind of vlog you want to do that day? Do you find it difficult to come up with new ideas on a daily or semi-daily basis? If that is the case then these 10 Youtube challenges video ideas will definitely help you out. Not only will these ideas give you less to think about in regards to filming, but they will also help grow your channel at an exponential rate.

Before I get into these Fun Youtube Challenges I want you to understand why these are great to do.

  • Easy to record and don’t require much thought on your part.
  • People love these types of videos, which means their chances of going viral are much greater.
  • Video props are cheap to buy.
  • Great way to collaborate with other YouTubers.

Now, let’s talk about some tips to help you get the most out of your Youtube challenges.

Tips for Getting the Best out of Your Youtube Challenges

Record From Different Angles

Something that I always do is record my videos from multiple angles. By doing this you will give your audience a different feel for what you are doing. Another thing that I like to do is place a GoPro camera on me so that I can give the viewer a first-person shot as well as a front-facing shot. Different angles will also help to keep your video looking different than what everybody else puts online.

Lighting Is Key

Never have dark videos. Dark videos don’t get as much engagement and the viewers tend to drop off very quickly. Have a decent lighting setup with you so that the video looks bright and vibrant.

Ask Viewers to Share

If you want your video to go viral, then ask your viewers to share it on social media. You don’t have to demand that they do, but give them an incentive for doing it. This leads me onto my next tip.

Create a Like Goal for Additional Challenges

When I do challenge videos I always set a like goal for my audience. For example, if I know I usually get 10,000 likes on my videos, then I would set an even higher one to get more people to like it.

For example, I will tell my viewers that if this video gets over 15,000 likes in the first 48 hours then I will do a different challenge video, in which they can vote on. By doing things like this you will find that more and more people start liking your content, which means it is being seen by more people inside Youtube, which will eventually grow your channel.

Collaborate with other YouTubers

One of the best parts about collaborating with another Youtuber is that you can both feed off each others subscribers. By getting in front of another person’s subscribers you will most likely gain a decent amount of those people. If you can collaborate with another Youtuber at least once a month you will see that your channel grows faster and you have a much broader audience than you did before.

10  Youtube Challenge Ideas

Some of these will be food Youtube challenges and others will be non-food related Youtube challenges.

1. Chubby Bunny Challenge

The Chubby Bunny challenge is very simple, you place marshmallows in your mouth one at a time while trying to say “Chubby Bunny”. You and your opponent take turns putting the marshmallows into your own mouth until the other person gets so many in that they can’t say “Chubby Bunny”.

2. Bean Boozled Challenge

The Bean Boozled challenge is very simple to do. First, you need to order the Bean Boozled pack, after you get it the fun will begin. What you do is sit down and start recording. Pop one of the Jelly Beans into your mouth and try to guess which flavor it is. The reason why this is so fun to watch is because there are disgusting flavors such as grass clippings, baby wipes, nose boogers, and more.

3. The Whisper Challenge

The object of this game is to try and read someone’s lips and figure out what they’re saying while listening to loud music on headphones. Have the music loud enough for the listener so that they can’t hear the other person‘s voice. Remember, the aim of the challenge is to figure out what the other person is saying by reading their lips. It’s fun watching people play this game and the results can be really funny and unexpected. This game is mostly for amusement so most people don’t track points, but you could do if you want to.

4. Tin Can Challenge

This is very similar to the baby food guessing game, except you use adult food. The tin can challenge is where you will pull all the labels off the canned food and then set them on the table. You and your opponent each take turns and open up one of the random cans on the table and take a big spoonful of it. You only get a point if you can swallow whatever it was that you picked.

5. Eat It Or Wear It Challenge

This is a variation of the tin can challenge, but the eat it or wear it challenge is much messier. What you do in order to set this up is simply take a bunch of random food and place it in bags. You need to place the food in non-transparent bags so that you can’t see what you are choosing. Then lay the bags out and you and your opponent will start picking one at a time. If you choose the bag, then you must eat its contents. If you don’t eat the stuff inside the bag then your opponent must pour its contents on your head. The winner is the one that is less messy.

6. Baby Food Challenge

One of the Youtube challenges that I hate the most is the baby food challenge. This is pretty much the same thing as the tin can challenge except you do it with baby food. What most people don’t realize is that baby food might sound good, but when you mash up the food and add in the preservatives to it the taste is completely different.

So, you and your partner will place a bunch of baby food on a table and you will each choose 1 can. You both eat at the same time and whoever doesn’t eat their can of baby food doesn’t get a point for the round. You play until you get to “X” amount of points. You can decide how many points you want to go to.

7. No Smiling Or Laughing Challenge

There are literally millions of videos online and you want to find the best of the best for this youtube challenge. The way this challenge works is you and your partner will find 10 funny videos. You will both watch them at the same time, but you can’t smile or laugh. For each video that you watch without smiling or laughing you will get a point. The person with the most points at the end of the 10 videos wins the no smiling of laughing challenge.

8. Touch My Body Challenge

Do you think you can stump your partner? I recommend playing this with your spouse, boyfriend, or girlfriend. The point of this game is to put out a certain body part and have your partner touch you there. After this, it is their turn to guess which body part it is. They must be somewhat specific, so if you made them touch your elbow and they only said arm, then they would be wrong.

9. The Whisper Challenge

The whisper challenge is a lot of fun and you can make so many changes to this game if you want to. The way it works is you will wear noise-canceling headphones while the other person tells you a short sentence. The goal is to be able to tell them exactly what they told you just by reading their lips. I recommend you play to 5 or 10 points, with a point being awarded to the person who guesses correctly.

10. Blindfolded Drawing Challenge

Do you think you can draw blindfolded? Well, this is the youtube challenge where you will see about that. The blindfolded drawing challenge is where you are blindfolded and must draw a certain picture. You and your partner can do this at the same time and with the same picture if you want, but it is sometimes more fun to do it separately. The goal is to make the best drawing possible. I recommend you have a third person who will be the judge of the two pictures.

Well, there you have it. Now get out there and make some of the most epic Youtube challenge videos ever.
