Upfront and messy, this game can last as long as you want, with as many people playing as you like.
You need one bag per contestant, in which ahead of time you’ll put both gross and tasty food items into.
Suggestions for gross foods: sardines, spam, peppers, dry decaffeinated coffee, etc.
Suggestions for good foods: marshmallows, peanuts, M&Ms, Skittles, chocolate Kisses.
With all of the contents, cut them up into different sizes so students cannot easily figure out what it is.
With you holding the bag so that the student can’t see its contents, volunteers grab a handful of whatever is in the bag, not looking, feeling the bag, or smelling it. They can’t look at what’s in their hand (use a blindfold if you don’t trust your kids!). Not a game for the weak!
