Snapchat isn’t just for keeping up with the Kardashians or posting silly pictures of yourself with a cute puppy filter. It’s about connecting to your friends, making new ones, and above all, letting your hair down!
Unlike other social media platforms, Snapchat is all about living in the here and now. You can be whoever you want to be today, without any record of who you were yesterday. And that’s why 210 million users around the world, love it so much!
If you’re on Snapchat and looking for fun new ways to connect with your friends, we got your back. Try out these quirky Snapchat challenges to get noticed and entertain your pals for hours.
1. Send Me a Picture
This first challenge is guaranteed to make you LOL. Have some fun with your friends without taking things too seriously. All you need to do is add a post to your Snapchat stories asking people to send you the funniest picture they can get their hands on.
There are no rules and no criteria, you just need creativity to win! Pretty soon after posting, your inbox will be full of silly selfies, hilarious dog pics, and memes so if nothing else, this one is guaranteed to brighten your day up.
Judging the competition is totally up to you, after all, everyone has their own ideas of what’s funny and part of the challenge is seeing how well your friends know you!
To spice things up a bit you can also theme your Snapchat story challenge and ask for particular images. For example, you might only want to see selfies or maybe you’re in the mood for ice skating penguins. Whatever tickles your fancy, ask for it!
2. Let’s Play Pictionary
This challenge can be enjoyed by every age group- even your gran could have a go! Snap Pictionary is all about getting creative with your emojis. Use them to represent a sentence, movie name, or your favorite song, and ask your friends to decode the answer.
This can be trickier than you might think. Just because you think a witch’s hat followed by a lightning bolt emoji is obviously Harry Potter, your friends might not be on the same wavelength. So don’t be afraid to give them a few hints in your stories along the way!
Whether you record videos with your hints or use extra emojis (an owl would be perfect in this case), people will enjoy the live element of the challenge and you’ll get noticed by even more of your friends.
3. What Emoji Are We?
Next on the list is another emoji challenge, but this time it’s personal! Head to the emoji keyboard on your mobile and you’ll see the emojis you use most on the left-hand side. In this challenge, your friends have to choose an emoji that represents your relationship.
The fun part is that you get to see how each of your friends view you differently, which is pretty cool if you think about how unique each of those relationships is. Who knows? You might even get sent a few fire emojis from a not so secret crush!
Snapchat emojis have defined meanings, but for this game, your friends will probably get creative with their choice of symbols, so you’ll also have a challenge on your hands as you decode their messages. It’s two for the price of one!
4. Fill In The Blanks
Fill in the blanks is a social media classic. It’s light-hearted, open-ended, and gives your friends the opportunity to get personal with you without having to be nervous!
For example, your fill in the blanks story post might be sentences like: “I can’t live without (blank)”, or “My favorite (blank) with you was (blank). But it could also be a mini-story where your friends have to fill in a number of blanks to create the full tale.

5. Snapchat Lens
For a fun video challenge, try Snapchat lenses. Lens challenges are Snapchat’s answer to rival platform TikTok’s interactive viral videos and they’re designed to get you moving, dancing, and most importantly, enjoying yourself!
Users can participate in a challenge by creating a snap that’s themed to a particular song or dance. For example, one of the first challenges is a sing-along to Jingle Bells so it is perfect for the holiday season. You can then share your attempt on your Snapchat stories to encourage your pals to give it a go.
If you’re recording lens challenges, it’s easier from your laptop as you can stand it up whilst you record. Here’s how to get Snapchat on Mac so you can get started.
6. Tag Your Favorites
If you want to get noticed and you want your story to be shared with as many people as possible, it’s a good idea to get other users involved in your Snapchat challenges. A sneaky way to do this is to get your Snapchat followers to tag their friends so that they receive a notification.
Snapchat tag challenges involve you tagging your friends against particular skills, personality traits, or characteristics that you like about them. For example, the challenge could ask: “Who has the best smile?” “who constantly makes you laugh the hardest?”
These challenges are great because they give everyone involved a little boost for the day. Who could feel bad after being awarded your prestigious ride or die tag! Keep them positive to spread kindness, after all, Snapchat users are the happiest on social media, so let’s keep it that way.
