Inspired by Pinterest (and who isn’t these days?!), our family had a Minute to Win It game night. It was loads of fun, and I hope you’ll bear with me as I post TONS of pictures- hey, it’s my blog, after all!
First up, ‘Throw Marshmallows Through a Wreath!’ It’s as simple as it sounds :)
Minion 1was super-impressed with Hero’s shot!
And the winner was Awesome McAwesome with EIGHT marshmallows!
Next, we had one minute to stack cups into a pyramid. The older kids had to use one hand, while the younger ones played an easier version.
The best part of this game?
Knocking the cups down!!
Then they played ‘Get the Cotton Ball to Stick to the Vaseline on Your Nose.’ Don’t you just love my creativity with the names of these games?! Hero, McAwesome, Sweetheart Girl, and Twinkle were the only ones that wanted to do this one. Minion 1 and Minion 2 did NOT want anything on their noses!
Here are pictures of the classic ‘Get the Cookie in Your Mouth Without Using Your Hands.’
She did it!
Next was an impromptu change since my materials weren’t going to allow us to follow the original rules. With a partner, you needed to place as many ornaments as possible on a yard stick that was balancing on a paper towel tube.
We’re almost done, I promise!
Next, the kids had to see how many candy canes they could move from the table to the Christmas tree in one minute. The catch was that they could only use their mouths! Let the fun begin!
And the winner (with SIX candy canes) was…
Twinkle!!!!! She used her hands ;)
Here are the girls celebrating Twinkle’s victory!
And finally, ‘Stack Mini-Marshmallows on a Popsicle Stick.’
There you go- lots of pictures, lots of fun! But, in case you’re dying for just one more picture, here’s one of my favorites from the night:
