Banana Foot Peel


This game works great as an upfront game. All you need is one banana per participant.

Bring up about 4 students, have them take off their shoes and socks, and hand each of them a banana. Make sure the crowd can see them really well; if necessary, employ the use of a live video feed.

When the leader says go, the contestants are supposed to peel the banana with their feet as quickly as they can. They can use both feet to do so.

Judge the winner by speed and final condition of the banana.

If you are super brave, you can have someone from the crowd eat the 1st place banana! Make sure to give them a good prize if they can eat it in under a minute.

NOTE: It is SO important that everyone be able to see this game happen! If there is any doubt, use a live video feed on the screen(s).

    This game was Great! We did it on a Sunday Morning for our 100 high school students and they thought it was so funny watching someone work so hard to end up with a smashed banana.

    Great idea! We did it before our youth worship service and people loved it. For added bonus we dared a couple of our brave young men to take a bite out of one of the banana… The crowed went crazy!
