Minute to Win It New Years Eve Games for Kids
Don’t Look Back, Just Ahead: For the game, player 1 must stand behind player 2 and toss cotton balls or pom-poms over player 2’s head. Player 2 must try to catch the pom poms without turning around and looking back and their teammate, just by stretching and reaching to catch the poms. The first team to catch five first wins.
Bottle-to-Bottle: Fill one 2-Liter bottle with anything — pasta, rice, marbles, cereal, mini-marshmallows, etc. Players must try to transfer one bottle’s contents into another bottle. Whoever can transfer the most within the minute will win. Trust us: There will be a ton of spillage, so avoid liquid.
Face Cookie: Each person had a cookie placed on their forehead and had to get it into their mouth without touching it with their hands.
Pop the Confetti: Player must pop all five balloons in the allotted time using just their hands (so no teeth, feet, bum, etc.) while wearing heavy winter gloves.
Junk in the Trunk: Players have a tissue box tied to their lower backs. Inside is 6 ping-pong balls. They have one minute to empty their boxes without using their hands.
