These Minute to Win It games are hilarious! They are great to play at home with the family or at your next party or group event. Fun for all ages! We had a Family Fun Night with a Minute to Win It theme. It was extremely easy to come up with the games.

For our party, I used a Minute to Win It party bucket, but it is no longer being sold, so I created a printable decoration kit that includes everything needed to host your own party.

The theme made the evening so much fun! We laughed a lot. It also worked really well for all the different age groups from our youngest right up to us adults.

Decorations:

  • Treat Bag Toppers
  • Cupcake Wrappers
  • Cupcake Toppers
  • Favour Bag Tags in two sizes
  • Straw Flags
  • Score Sheets
  • Game Directions for each of the games here and the games in our Dollar Store Minute to Win It night

I had planned to make cupcakes and number them from 1-12 and have them in the shape of a clock, but I ran low on time (ironic?), so we made mini cinnamon rolls instead. I made a variety of finger foods: veggies, surprise spread, tortilla chips, salsa, spinach dip, focaccia, crackers, cheese, and meat.

Other food ideas for this theme:

  • take the top layer off Oreo cookies and draw a clock face on the white part with black edible pen or icing.
  • make a veggie tray in the shape of a clock
  • fried cheese filled wonton clocks

Minute to Win It Games:

This was the really fun part of the night! Here are some of the games we played. All we needed was a timer and things that most people have around the house. I did buy the ping pong balls, the Oreos, the Smarties, and the panty hose, but everything else we already had. For prizes, I bought mini skateboards, parachute men, and let the kids keep a ping pong ball each. All told, the party supplies cost about $5.

Face the Cookie.

Each person had a cookie placed on their forehead and had to get it into their mouth without touching it with their hands. Einstein did it successfully!

Stack Attack.

This game consists of stacking 36 cups in a pyramid and then back down into a single stack. The Ferrari came the closest to conquering this one in one minute.

Movin’ On Up.

(I love the look on Granola Girl’s face here!) In this game, the kids had to start with the blue cup on top and stack the cups one by one until the blue cup is on top again. Use 8-12 cups depending on the age and ability of those playing.

Junk in the Trunk.

This game is hilarious! With a kleenex box strapped around the waist, the participants had to try to get out the 8 ping pong balls just by movement. It was really funny to watch! We laughed so hard that it was difficult to keep the game going!

Suck It Up.

In this game, the kids had to transfer Smarties from one plate to another using only a straw. They were able to eat the Smarties afterwards which no one seemed to mind.

Penny Hose.

Players had to retrieve 2 pennies, one at the bottom of each leg of the panty hose. This is another funny one to watch. It’s more challenging than it sounds.

Ping Pong Bounce.

In this game, players had to bounce ping pong balls into six cups. Everyone was able to do it in the minute. It’s nice to choose some games that are a bit more attainable like this one so that people don’t get frustrated. Mix in the easier ones with some of the more challenging games.

Keep it Up.

In this game, the kids had to blow a feather across the room into a bucket. Only The Ferrari was able to do it successfully. It was awfully fun to try it though!

Yank Me.

This game was the hardest. No one was able to do it in one minute. One of the kids was able to get close though. To play, stack an index card on the top of the cup until there are five cups and then yank the index cards out to attempt to create a single stack of five cups.

It was a great night! This was a very easy theme to plan around and it was one of the rare themes that worked well with the broad age range of kids that is represented in our family. It would be a great one to plan for family get together, family reunions, birthdays parties, or youth group nights.
