3 or 4 students each have a pan with chocolate pudding or Reddi Whip and 15 gummy worms mixed in. Have them go face first into the chocolate pudding and pick the gummy worms out with their teeth and drop them on a plate. First one to get all 15 or the person who gets the most in a designated amount of time is the winner.

Variation: Make huge bowls of chocolate pudding and put regular gummy worms and sour gummy worms in the bowls. Tell the students that there are some “special worms” in the buckets and they will know when they get those special worms. (The kids think they are real worms; when they ask if they’re real, don’t answer them!) They get 1 point for every gummy worm they find and 5 points for every “special” (sour) worm they find.
