A bowl of flour. Balance a jelly baby on top. Take turns to remove a spoonful of flour.
Whoever makes the sweet fall must eat it without using their hands.
This is a messy game, but one that kids love. Very popular for sleepovers.
Suitable for kids aged 7 upwards.
YOU WILL NEED
- A large bowl – big enough to put your head into
- Spoons – one per player
Fill the bowl with flour and create a small mound
Put a jellybaby or similar small sweet on top. Anything works really.
Give everyone a spoon.
Now sit around the bowl in a circle.
Take it in turns to remove a spoonful of flour.
If the sweet falls off the flour mountain on your go, you lose. You must now get and eat the sweet without using your hands.
- Have a vacuum cleaner ready to clear up the flour
- Or play on a plastic sheet
- You don’t need to use Jellybabies: any sweet will do
