How To Play Candy Pants

I love this game mostly because of the name, but it is fun to watch and play.

One person wears clown pants, the other person throws candy into them from a distance of about two body lengths away. The part of this game everyone loves most, after enjoying a few laughs, is picking up the candy at the end. It's like a pinata at a birthday party.

I usually use this game in two teams of two trying to catch the most, but one team of two can work as well competing against the clock. This is a great mini-game as part of a larger game.

I make my own clown pants by finding the largest pair of jeans that I can and stuffing a hula hoop through the belt loops. I finish it off with suspenders to keep them on. I also tell the wearer to roll up the cuffs of the pants so candy doesn't fall out.

Yeah we have done this one before but we use a piece of wood to catapult the lollies so its less predictable.

big sweat pants would work too since the ankles will be cinched
