Christmas Minute to Win It Games

Minute to Win It Games

For Christmas Eve this year we had our traditional fare – fondue followed by the playing of the chimes and acting out of the nativity.

We added in a fun new twist this year with some games.  Many of you may be familiar with the TV show Minute to Win It.   It is a variety of fun little games that you compete in within a minutes time.

We put together a few of them for a Christmas version of Minute to Win it Games and it was a total blast!  They would also be fun to play on New Year’s Eve.

Required items:

36 plastic cups all the same size

When the clock starts, player may begin stacking cups into a pyramid shape.

When the triangle is complete, with 1 cup at the top, 2 cups below it, and so on, the player may begin to get the cups into a single stack.

To complete the game, the player must build a complete pyramid using all of the cups, then get all the cups back into a single stack within the 60-second time limit.

Note:  Be sure and use cups that are all the same size – much easier!

Wreath Toss

Required Items:

Wreath, Large Marshmallows, Bowl, String to hang wreath with

Hang a wreath from somewhere ( I had this PVC pipe frame leftover from our Wedding Carnival)

Place a bowl or bucket behind it on the floor.

See how many marshmallows (we used the jumbo size) you can throw through the wreath and have them land in the bucket in a 60 seconds.  We had it set up so the marshmallows rebounded off the cabinet making it easier to get them in the bowl.  To make it harder don’t have a backdrop.

Enjoy!
