Supplies: One really big bowl for each team, LOTS of ice cream, and LOTS of condiments.
Divide group into teams of 4 to 6 kids. In a giant bowl, see which team can construct the most original ice cream concoction using equal amounts of ice cream products supplied by the staff. Afterwards, award a prize to the team with the coolest sundae.
THEN spring it on them that they have 5 minutes to see which team can eat the most of their sundae without using their hands or utensils. The team with the most ice cream gone wins a prize. Talk about messy!
