Outdoor Minute to Win It Games

These games would be fun for a beach-themed minute to win it game party. They would fit perfectly into a luau-themed bash.

Classic Water Balloon Toss: Pair up players, and give each set of players one water balloon. Players start about a foot apart, facing each other. Player 1 tosses the balloon to Player 2, and if Player 2 catches it successfully, he takes a step backward. Continue tossing back and forth and taking steps backward until the water balloon pops. The dry player scores 5 points, and the wet player scores 0.

Frozen T-Shirt Race: wet, fold, and freeze one t-shirt per player (use wax paper or freezer paper in between the shirts in the freezer so that they don’t stick together). Players can go head-to-head in this game, or you can do this one with the entire group as a whole. Whoever can defrost and put on their shirt within one minute* wins 5 points! (* Note: you may want to increase the time on this game to more than a single minute. It can actually take up to 10 minutes for the shirts to unfreeze enough to put them on!)

Ring Toss: Give each player six rings and see how many posts they can loop in one minute. Score one point per ring looped.

Milk Crate Tug of War: Pair up players by size, and have each player stand atop a milk crate. Players have one minute to try to pull each other off of their crate. The winner gets 5 points, the loser gets 0, and a tie will result in 2 points for each player

Bucket Dash: set two buckets about 20-30 feet apart, and fill one with water. Using only a large sponge, transfer the water from one pail to the other. This game can be scored in two different ways.

Rubber Band Can Shooting Gallery: Players stand 10-15 feet away from a tower of cans. Use rubber bands to knock down as many cans as you can in one minute (if all the cans are knocked down, the player may set them up again and continue shooting until the minute is up). Earn one point for each can knocked down!

TP Hut, Hut, Hike!: Players take turns trying to hike rolls of toilet paper through another player’s arms 15 feet away (the second player stays stationary and does not move). Score 2 points for each tp roll that successfully makes it through their arms in one minute.

Penny Drop: Place a small glass jar inside a larger glass container, and fill it with water.  The challenge is to drop pennies from the top of the large container and have them land inside the small jar – it’s not as easy as you might think! Score 2 points for each penny that makes it into the small container within 1 minute.

Kiddie Pool Toe Diving: Setup a full kiddie pool with all sorts of fun little toys, rings, etc. When you say go, players must try to fish out as many items from the kiddie pool as they can with their toes only. The winner is whoever can get something out first or whoever gets out the most things.
