THE SARAN WRAP GAME
You will Need: Saran wrap ball, pair of dice and a plate or bowl (for rolling dice).
To create your saran wrap ball you’ll need several rolls of saran wrap and small gifts/prizes. Simply start by wrapping one item up and keep wrapping the saran wrap around and around in various directions, adding prizes randomly to it as you go. You’ll want to put the better prizes towards the middle of your ball. Here are few ideas of fun things to include: Gift cards, candy, chap stick, hand sanitizer, cream, money, small accessories & toys
How to Play
- Begin by sitting everyone in a circle and giving one person the saran wrap ball and the person to their left the bowl/pie plate and dice.
- To play you must keep the ball on your lap at all times and unwrap it as fast as you can while the person to your left keeps rolling the dice until they get doubles. Once they roll doubles the dice will pass to the person on their left and the saran wrap ball will pass to the dice roller. Once the person to their left rolls doubles the ball gets passed again.
- Keep unwrapping the saran wrap ball as fast as possible the entire time the person is rolling, until they roll doubles. You get to keep any prizes you unwrap.
Gather up some goodies and give it a go!
CANDY CANE GAME
You will Need: Candy Canes, bowls or bag for each player, timer
How to Play
Place a pile of Candy canes and a bowl for each player. Each player puts a candy cane in their mouth and tries to move as many candy canes as they can move from the pile to the bowl in 1 minute using only the candy cane in their mouth. The player with the most candy canes in the bowl after 1 minute wins.
We hope you have a great time with your family and friends this Holiday Season!
