Arrange chairs in a line for each team, sitting side by side in one row.  On one side (next to the first person) place the tray of ice cubes on the floor and on the other side (next to the last person in row) place the plastic cup on the floor. The task of each team is to move the ice cubes using only their chopsticks from the tray to the plastic cup. The winner is the team that will have the most ice cubes in their cup by the end of the game. Team members can only use their chopsticks and can only move one ice cube at a time.

Requiring each member of the team in turn to put the t-shirt on and take it off, before passing it on to the next team member.
