Gooey Gobble Camping Game
|Required:||2 or 3 large marshmallows per camper. |
a long string or fishing line per team.
|Preparation:||Optionally, freeze the marshmallows to make them firm. |
Poke a hole through each marshmallow with a skewer and string it onto the line. Put the same number on each line - 16 or 24 for an 8-person team.
Tie the string between two trees at about chest height.
|Instructions:||Teams line up at a starting line about 10 feet or so from the strings of marshmallows. |
On 'Go' signal, first camper in each team runs to his string, eats one marshmallow with hands clasped behind back, then tags next in line.
Repeat for a set time length or until one team has eaten all their marshmallows.
Each eaten marshmallow is worth 5 points. Any touching marshmallows with hands takes away 3 points. Any dropped pieces on the ground take away 3 points, unless they are eaten.
