Saran Wrap Ball Game

You will need:
3-5 Rolls of Saran Wrap (Dollar store size)
1 Pair of Oven Mitts
1 Pair of Dice
Large Selection of Candies, small toys, coins etc.

Crafty Fun Parties Printable Cards (Optional)
Reverse Play, Skip Your Next Turn, Trade Prize Piles With Whoever You Choose, Steal 3 Prizes  and more. These cards really add to the game. Click Here for PDF File

Wrap Candies, Coins, Toys and Printable Cards into Saran Wrap continuously as to make a ball. After you get it started I have found that breaking off the saran wrap at various points and wrapping it in different directions makes it both easier to make and more difficult for players to unwrap.

Variation: I have made the ball with all tootsie roll midgets. You can buy them in large bags of like 300 at Sam's Club. All players keep whatever tootsie rolls they have collected but whoever has the most wins a special prize.

Saran Wrap Ball Game

Select someone to start. That player gets the ball and a pair of oven mitts, the person to his right gets the dice. The player tries to unwrap as much of the ball as possible wearing the oven mitts before the dice roller gets doubles. At that point he must STOP, collect whatever prizes he has unwrapped and follow the instructions on the card if he releases one. He then passes the ball to the next person clockwise and the first player will roll the dice. Play continues until the ball is gone.

Pick A Prize

Go the the Dollar Store and purchase several items. Wrap them individually in tissue paper so no one knows what they are. Let the winners Pick A Prize.
Prizes can be Practical. ... a flashlight, a tape measure, a dish towel, a pot holder, kleenex etc ... or Not So Practical ... fairy wings, a tiara, hemorrhoid cream, a pregnancy test (Yes, my dollar store actually sells pregnancy tests ???) It's more fun if you mix it up, some good and some bad. Make the guy who won the tiara wear it. 
I give out a lot of prizes at my parties, winners. losers, ties, someone who said something especially funny, whoever used the bathroom last ..... With these inexpensive prizes you can afford to give out lots and sometimes "Picking the Prize" ends up to be as much fun as the game.

Spontaneous Games

These are word and memory games you can do on the spot. They're not only great for parties, but for road trips, campfires etc. or even if you just want to keep kids busy. You can play along as you get other things done.

I Packed my Grandmother's Trunk

Players state "I packed my Grandmother's Trunk and in it I put _________." The first person says something they would put in the trunk. The 2nd person repeats the phrase and what is already in the trunk and adds an item. The next person says the phrase repeats ALL items in the trunk and adds their own. Once a player misses something they are out. Play continues until there is only one person left.

I packed my Grandmother's trunk and in it I put a frying pan .... Who's Next ?

Through the Alphabet

Pick a category and take turns naming something that starts with the letter in sequence. First person uses A, the 2nd player B etc

Category Suggestions:



"Animals A


Your Turn"

Red, White and Blue Memory Game
The first person names something red, the next names something white, and the next something blue. Continue following the pattern. Each time someone repeats something already said or can't think of anything, they're out. 

Double Up Word Game
Chose a player to start. That player chooses a word containing double letters, such as cool. Then the next player must think of a word that includes the double letters of the last letter in the chosen word. Thus, cool ends in l, so the  next word must contain 2 L's, as in pillar. Play then shifts to the next player, who follows the pattern. In this case, the next word must contain a doubling of the letter r, since that letter ends the word pillar. Play continues until a player can't think of a word to play and they are "out". Last person "in" wins.
