Minute to Win It

Here is the Game List  for you to use with your family, at a party, or with your class.  We tried these out tonight and put them in order of difficulty.  There are 7 games here.  I made sure to use only easy household items that require little to no prep! Click on the green link for your own copy of the games!
Game 1
Go Fish  
This one is a great way to start things off.  Everyone wins! fan the tissue paper fish across the room or into a box. 

Game 2  
This Blows
players must blow a cup off the table using a straw.  Pretty easy for most!

Nose Dive
players put vasoline on their noses and must transfer 10 cotton balls from one plate to another.

 Game 4
Bean there done that
player suck a bean on the end of a straw and run it to a cup.  They must get 5 beans in their cup. ( I thought ten would be good but it was TOO hard)

Game 5
Scrambled Cereal
 This was a tough one! If using this game for kids,  I might save it for last or give them more time.  They have to put together a cereal box cover.

 Game 6
Noodling Around
  Player must get 4 penne pasta on a spaghetti noodle using only your mouth. (for kids we snapped off some of the length of the spaghetti noodle and made them only get 3 penne)

Game 7
Face the Cookie
 Players must get a cookie from their forehead to their mouth using only their facial expressions.  This was last because it is hard...but it was fun!

I plan to play this with my first graders in the Spring.  I also played it with a group of 5th graders this morning, and they really enjoyed the games.  I hope you are able to use it! :)
