This is an upfront game that is a lot of fun for the competitors and the crowd that watches. Here is what you do.
You’ll need at least 5 jelly-filled donuts, a long piece of string, and some Ready Whip Cream. To set up the game, tie the donuts to the piece of string, about 2 feet apart from one another, and have an adult leader hold each end of the string.
Invite 5 contestants (who are close in height to one another) to come forward to participate. Their objective is to eat the donut off the string WITHOUT USING THEIR HANDS. If their donut falls off the string and hits the floor, they are out of the competition.
When everyone is in place, have the leader say, “Ready, Set, wait a second! We need to up the ante a little bit.” Break out the can of spray cream, and hose down each of the donuts with it. Now, say “Go!”
NOTE: You will probably want to put down some sort of drop cloth to catch the whipped cream and falling donuts. Further, if you want to make this game even more difficult, tell the adult leaders who are holding the string to wiggle it around a little bit. You can also blindfold the students. Both of these tricks make this game VERY hard, though.
