What a wonderful time of year! Now that the presents have all been opened, What is next? Playing with our family and friends of course. Here is a great game for you and all of your holiday guests. This would be perfect for your New Year’s Celebrations.
You Will Need…
Bowls for each player
A way to keep time
Have everyone sit in a circle around a table or on the floor. Place a dab of vaseline on the tip of each player’s nose. Put a bowl in front of each player and a pile of cotton balls next to the bowl or scattered loosely in front of them on the table.
How to Play…
The object of the game is to place the cotton balls into the bowl using only your nose. Hands should be down or behind your back when you play. After 1 minute, the player with the most cotton balls in their bowl wins the prize. So, you are essentially “shoveling snow”, or cotton balls with your nose.
We like to play by taking turns one at a time so that we can watch each other. We use one bowl, each player takes a turn and then counts how many cotton balls they got. We dump the cotton balls out and the next person takes their turn.
You could easily play in teams also. Depending on how many people were involved.
Don’t forget to TAKE PICTURES. These are memories you don’t want to miss.
Happy Holidays to you and your family. Enjoy spending time with one another!
