M&M Bowling

Buy some M&M's at the concession stand. Get all your stuff ready for bowling. Open the bag. Assign each color a technique (granny, backwards, eyes closed, etc.) Pick out a M&M and depending on which color the person picks is the way that they bowl.

We did this with a singles ward. We thought the more people there were the more techniques they came up with. The all around favorites were the ballerina and flamingo, and while doing popcorn popping or snowman song. Because there were a lot of allergies we did it with a dice (a kleenex box -cover the hole) works great, just write a color or technique on it. Lots of fun times and great pictures afterwards.

Finishing Our Mission

"We need a partner who knows us inside and out, who is our constant support, whose mission in life includes seeing that we accomplish our mission."

Jaw Breaker

Tonight was my younger sister's bridal shower, we had a Pampered Chef party, I got there and there were just YUMMY dishes to try (recipes coming soon to a computer near you) There were no games, and I really wanted to play this with her, but... couldn't get ahold of the groom and I didn't plan the party. So I thought to share it with all my readers if you have a bride to please. If you try it send pictures so we can see how fun it was!!

Before the shower, corner the groom and persuade him to answer personal questions about himself. Write the questions with the answer on to slips of paper, attaching a piece of bubble gum (Bubble Yum or Bubblicious work great). Seating the bride and guests is a circle, distribute the slips to all guests. Have each guest take a turn reading their question. If the bride cannot answer or gets the answer wrong, she must chew the piece of gum. If she gets the answer right, the guest asking the question chews the gum. Through the course of the game, the bride must keep all "wrong answer" pieces of gum in her mouth (you might want to keep a napkin handy), continuing to chew until all questions are answered.

Some sample questions are:
What is his shoe size?
What is his favorite pizza topping?
Who was his favorite mission companion?
What does he think is "your song"?
What was the name of his first pet?
Did he ever wear braces?
Where is his birthmark?
What is the year, make and model of his car?
When was his last tune-up/oil change?
