Give the kids either in pairs or as individuals a plate and a tube of toothpaste. The bigger tubes work best. Tell them the challenge is to get all the toothpaste out of the tube as quick as possible. Watch and see how quickly the squirt it onto the plate. Then once the toothpaste it out let them in on the secret. The actual challenge is to see how much toothpaste they can get back in the tube. Almost impossible. Gets really messy really fast. For the most part the toothpaste stays on the plate and all over their hands. Some try to blow into the empty tube of toothpaste to open it back up again. Doesn't work but worth suggesting to see them try. Point of the game is to be careful with your words. They can come out super fast but don't always go back in so easily and can get messy if said in the wrong way.
