How To Play Marshmallow Bowl Run

Materials Needed

Marshmallows, plastic bowls, masking tape, spoon, hats.

Fantastic running messy food game but shouldn't create too much mess depending on how many marshmallows fall onto the ground and then get stepped on!

Split your group up into 2 teams. Make two hats which have small plastic bowls taped securely to the hats. At one end of the area put two large bowls. And the other end is where the teams will line up.

Get each team to stand in a line and give each team a bag (or two) of marshmallows. Each player in the team must take it in turns to put the bowl hat on, fill it with marshmallows, run down to the other end of the hall and carefully tip as many marshmallows as they can into the large bowl.

The aim is to get the most marshmallows in the large bowl at the end of the time limit.

The key is that you are no allowed to use your hands at any stage while wearing the hat. So it makes it difficult to get the marshmallows in the large bowl when you can't use your hands, you just have to tilt your head.

??? So when do the "marshmallows" come into play? Do team mates eat the whip cream out of the bowl? Please give us a few more details. Sounds like the start a fun game!

Hi Brianna, I think this game might need a bit of further explanation. I'm not quite sure what the aim of it is at the moment.
