Backyard games Minute to Win it Games pt 2

By The Style Sisters - Tuesday, July 09, 2013

On the 4th of July we had a blast playing minute to win it games..this is fun for the youngest to the oldest in the family.
The first game we played was Booger relay. Items needed: cotton balls, vaseline and paper plates.
Here my daughters are displaying their noses covered in vaseline hahah

You simply mash your face into a paper plate full of cotton balls to get as many to stick to your nose as possible.

With the cotton balls attached you run from one side of the yard to the other and where there is another empty paper plate.

You wiggle as much as you can without using your hands to get the cotton balls to fall onto the empty plate. Whoever has the most cotton balls at the end of one minute wins!

Adding vaseline to the kids noses

Even grandpa got into the action :)

Another game we played which I will call noodle head is hsyterical. Items needed: Shower cap, shaving cream and cheese puffs.Place the shower cap on each persons head and cover them with shaving cream

The other players take turns throwing the cheese puffs and try to get as many as they can to stick to their head. The person with the most cheese puffs stuck wins!!

Of course this can turn into a shaving cream fight involving everyone haha

No one was safe!!

This game I will call water bottle pantyhose bowling. Items needed Panty hose, Tennis balls and water bottles

Line up the water bottles in rows and each person stands at the end of the line with a pair of panty hose on their head and two tennis balls placed in the ends of each leg.

The person must shake their heads back and forth and strive to knock over each bottle of water in his or her line. The person who does it the fastest wins.

We were being all "gangsta"

Even the men were trying to be "gangsta" hahaha

We also played ping pong bucket catch. Items needed ping pongs and plastic bucket.

My mom punched holes in ice cream buckets and strung some tulle through the holes and we tied it on to each persons head. It slipped off a lot...we were thinking we should have used old hats and glued the buckets onto the hats or something like that to hold it on better.

My daughter looks like she is getting ready for a wedding or something.

You bounce the balls off the wall of the house and try to catch the balls in the buckets. The person with the most balls in their buckets wins. It is hysterical!

Let us know what other Minute to Win it games you have played with your family!

We really had so much fun!!
