Baby Food: Hot Potato with a Twist


You could play this game with your audience, or play this game just like hot potato, with everyone sitting in a circle. The twist is you use jars of baby food. When the music starts, you begin passing the jar of baby food around the audience or circle. When the music stops, whoever is left holding the jar has to take a spoonful. We use this game for special occasions, such as Thanksgiving, and use flavors such as turkey and gravy, sweet potato, green beans, etc.

*You may want to keep a garbage can nearby, just in case someone needs to throw up.

    Great game. I’ve used it as an audience game with several jars moving through the crowd. Always fun!
