                   Use this as a team game - two players per
                   team, sorting two packs of M&Ms into 6
1/11/2013   ****   bowls. NOTE: would be better to place
                   M&Ms onto a plate or tray to start as they
                   roll everywhere!

                   Youth found this difficult - spaghetti kept
                   snapping, but that was due to them
1/11/2013   ***    rushing - it requires gentle movement!
                   NOTE: Maybe use Linguine rather than
                                     Lined up 5 cotton wool balls at one end of
                                     each table (one player from each team
                                     competes simultaneously), with bowl at far
                                     end. They put as much Vaseline as they
                                     wanted on their nose - worked better with
                                     less rather than more! In a second round
                 1/11/2013   *****   with different team players, I increased the
                                     number of balls to 10, but maximun
                                     reached was 8 inthe minute. Note: Have a
                                     towel ready for the end.

                                     Used one of the small round tables. Like
                                     'Ready Spaghetti' this game needs player
                 1/11/2013   ***     to move slowly and not try to rush!

                    Did this as a warm up with half of each
                    team doing it simultaneously (so other half
1/11/2013   *****   could watch). Could just get the whole
                    group to do it - really funny, but with lots
                    of crumbs!

Game                      Overview

                          All go together. Empty a box of tissues, one tissue at a time, using
Hanky panky
                          only one hand. Last one to empty the box is eliminated.
                          Use pedominator attached to head to count head bobs. Least
Bobble head
                          counts at end of 60 seconds is eliminated.
                          Bounce ping pong ball to get one ball into peanut butter. Last one
Sticky situation
                          to do it is eliminated.

Rapid fire                Use rubber band to knock 6 can soda can stack off its surface.

                          Stack 4 apples one on top of another. Tower must stand for 3
Johny apple stack
                          Balance 3 soda cans on their bevelled edge – cannot be done with
                          can full or empty.
                          Use sticky gummy worm on end of line (like fishing rod) to pick up
Worm diving.              a pretzel from inside a narrow neck bowl and then eat their catch,
                          without using their hands.
                          Completely unwind a paper streamer (or toilet roll?) using
                          rhythmic gymnastics motion – hold end then wrap streamer
Paper dragon
                          around arm by rotating arms forward until roll is completely
                          wrapped around arm. One per arm.
                          Like noughts and crosses, but the game grid is made of 9 cups
                          filled with water, and the noughts and crosses are ping pong balls.
Ping tac toe              Players go head to head to bounce a ping pong balls (one colour
                          per team) into a glass. First team to get three in a row wins. Both
                          players shoot simultaneously.
