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.


  • Jellybabies
  • Flour
  • 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
