File this in the “fun with a blender” category!
Go to McDonald’s and pick up 3 Happy Meals (the manager may even donate them if he appreciates youth work). Pre-pick 3 willing contestants and bring them up front. (Make sure you follow “Jonathan’s Seven Sins of Game Leading” tips here- especially #2- being prepared and #7- making sure the entire crowd can see clearly.)
Blend the Happy Meals together (burger, fries, and drink) in front of them. Then, fill up equal CLEAR cups for each person. The rest is a race to see who can drink their “happy shake” the fastest.
You might want one or two trash cans near the front for participants who don’t like the shakes.
