Candy Cane Fishing

Chances are you’ve got some candy canes lying around! This fun game requires only ten candy canes, plus one for each player. Start out by placing the ten candy canes in a pile on a table. On each player’s turn, they place their own candy cane in their mouth, with the curved side out. Without using hands, the player uses that candy cane to hook another candy cane from the pile and transfer into a bowl. The player with the most canes after 1 minute wins!



Shoveling Snow

A bag of marshmallows and a few plastic spoons, and you’re all set for this fun game! Empty a bag of large marshmallows into a bowl and place on a table. Place an empty bowl next to it, and pass out a spoon to each player. On the player’s turn they place the handle of the spoon in their mouth, and must transfer marshmallows to the empty bowl without using their hands! Players get points for the number of marshmallows they can transfer in 1 minute. Just try not to lose points by eating the “snow!”



Hot Chocolate Pong

Who doesn’t love a good marshmallow toss game? No worries about making a splash here – mugs are filled with brown paper to mimic hot chocolate without the mess. Start by placing ten mugs at the end of a table in the form of a triangle. Fill the cups just to below the rim with some brown tissue paper or crumpled paper. Ten marshmallows go at the other end of the table and one at a time the players try to toss a marshmallow into each mug. Players get points for each landed marshmallow.
