5 games that all involve cereal:
- Snoot Shoot
The youth shoot Trix, Kix, or Cocoa Puffs out of their noses. The team whose Puff goes the farthest wins. Chariots of Fire or Rocky theme adds cheesiness.
- Rice Krispy Marble Dig
Fill a small swimming pool full of Rice Krispies & marbles. Add water (milk is better, use the powdered kind to save $$$). A representative from each team takes off their shoes and socks and digs the marbles out with their toes.
- Snoot Shoot
- Cereal Art
Give each team various kinds of cereal, glue, paper, and scissors. No leaders are allowed to help. Tell students the only rule: BE CREATIVE! Fun photo op here. Leaders may judge.
- Shredded Wheat Toss
This involves two representatives from each team playing. One is at one end of the room holding an upright bucket on their head. The other is at the other end with a bucket of water and boxes of Large Shredded Wheat. The representatives dunk the shredded wheat one by one and then attempt to throw them across the room in the buckets on their team member’s head.
- Cereal Eating Relay
Five members from each team line up. One at a time they race to a table where they fix themselves a bowl of cereal and eat it, go back and tag the next team member.
*A Young Life Extra: Cereal Box Puzzle
- Cut off the front panel of several cereal boxes — one for each group you’ve formed. Then cut up each panel into puzzle shapes- one for each person in the group. Mix together all the pieces and give one to each person and have them compete to find their cereal.
