One of the best things about these games is that they don’t require much. In fact, most of the supplies are things that you already have in the house.

Just in case, here’s a list of game supplies.

Fun Minute to Win It Games

Face the Cookie: Each person had a cookie placed on their forehead and had to get it into their mouth without touching it with their hands.

Movin’ On Up: In this game, the kids had to start with the blue cup on top and stack the cups one by one until the blue cup is on top again. Use 8-12 cups depending on the age and ability of those playing.

Junk in the Trunk: This game is hilarious! With a tissue box strapped around the waist, the participants had to try to get out the 8 ping pong balls just by movement. It was really funny to watch! We laughed so hard that it was difficult to keep the game going.

Suck it Up: In this game, the kids had to transfer candy (Smarties, M&Ms, Skittles) from one plate to another using only a straw. They were able to eat the candy afterward which no one seemed to mind.

Minute to Win It Games

Penny Hose: Players had to retrieve 2 pennies, one at the bottom of each leg of the pantyhose. This is another fun one to watch. It’s more challenging than it sounds.

Ping Pong Bounce: In this game, players had to bounce ping pong balls into six cups.  Everyone was able to do it in the minute. It’s nice to choose some games that are a bit more attainable like this one so that people don’t get frustrated. Mix in the easier ones with some of the more challenging games.

Funny Minute to Win It games

Keep it Up: In this game, the kids had to blow a feather across the room into a bucket. It was awfully fun to try it though! You could also use a balloon instead of a feather!

Yank Me: This game was the hardest.  No one was able to do it in one minute. One of the kids was able to get close though. To play, stack an index card on the top of the cup until there are five cups and then yank the index cards out to attempt to create a single stack of five cups.

Find the Berry: Before the party, fill several plastic cups with jello. Then insert a berry or another food item in the center. Using only their mouth, your guest must each through the jello to get the berry.

Super Fun Games

Paper Plate Race: For this game, you need to set up a starting line & a finish line. Guests have to race to blow their paper plate across the finish line first while only using their mouths to blow it.

Wrap it Up: This one requires partners. Using streamers or toilet paper, one partner must wrap the other up as much as they can.

Balloon Blow: This game is super fun & works best in teams of 2 or more. Set up a stack of cups in front of each person. They must then blow up a balloon & use the air in the balloon to knock over as many of their cups as they can.

Party Ideas

Sprinkle It: Fill 1 empty bottle with sprinkles or Cheerios. Each guest has to dump the snacks out of the bottle & get them into another empty one before time runs out.

Blindfold Bowling: Set up several bowling pins. If you don’t have pins then you can use plastic bottles or cans.

Then bowl blindfolded. Take as many turns needed within your minute.
