Cereal Killer


You will need 1 box of cereal, 1/2 gallon of milk, a bowl large enough to fit an entire box of cereal and 5 spoons for each team. Put 5 students on one team and 5 different students on another team.

Have all ten students come up, grab a spoon, and circle their bowl. Pour the _ gallon of milk and the full box cereal into each team’s bowl. When the game leader says go, the contestants will have three minutes to eat as much cereal as possible. There must be absolutely NO spillage because if the bowls are not emptied after three minutes they will be weighed for rankings.

If you don’t have a small accurate scale, you can let the leaders rank what is left in the bowls.

Tip: there is absolutely no way to avoid spilling, so let them know that you will weigh the paper towels used to clean up their mess along with their leftover cereal.

Also, make sure each team has the same type of bowl and cereal to avoid controversy.

This game is great; the spoons leave about 10 seconds into the game, and they start shoveling it in with their hands.
