Cookie Mission Impossible
Split group into teams. (Make sure that you have vehicles, and an oven for each team to use.) The team will be given a list with several items needed to make cookies.
Each team must go door to door in your community, trying to collect ONE ingredient from each house. You can allow them to buy one and only ONE item from a store.
Once the items are collected, the teams must go to the location where their oven is waiting. Without a recipe they must prepare their cookies, cook them, and bring them back to the facility. The first team to collect all items, bake the cookies, and arrive at the facility, wins.
Enjoy eating the cookies when you're done (even though they might taste funky)!
