7:15-7:30 TWO GAMES (Spaghetti Relay & Porridge Pants)
7:40-7:45 Rice Model
7:45-7:55 Sculpt The Cheese
7:55-8:00 (Highs & Lows/Prayer Requests)
1. Spaghetti Relay
Materials: one bucket full of cooked spaghetti per team and one empty bucket
Directions: players will form a relay line. One end has the bucket with cooked spaghetti and the other is empty. The object is to pass the spaghetti from player to player using their hands. The team with the most cooked spaghetti in their empty bucket is declared the winner.
2. Porridge Pants
Materials: Lots of cooked oatmeal, large sweat pants.
Directions: One player from each team chosen to play. Kids on teams given a trivia question. For each correct answer, their chosen team mate is spared a scoop of oatmeal in their pants. For each incorrect answer, a scoop of oatmeal is put down the front of their sweatpants. The original game suggest having an obstacle course that the kids with the oatmeal pants had to run but we ran out of time for that part. Maybe next time.
3. Rice Model Competition
Materials: Lots of over-cooked rice.
Directions: Give teams a portion of the rice each. The competition is to use the rice to mold something. You can let them do it without any further instructions or you could have a particular challenge (ie. create a eiffel tower or a replica of a statue).
Make sure each team is getting all their members involved for the best result. Most creative, beautiful, accurate rice model wins!
4. Sculpt the Cheese
Materials: Lots of sliced cheese.
Directions: Two teams (1 kid per team) head off in a race to eat away at a slice of cheese to create a certain shape.
Notes about Food Fight Night: I was trying to tread lightly with this theme....I was afraid of kids getting into cars totally messy, etc. However, the kids came expecting a full blown food fight. Duh, I know. I shouldn't call it that unless that was part of the plan. We ended up letting them toss the rice at each other at the end which seemed to satisfy their food-fight craving. :)
