Party Game Central



A relay race where you try to balance a cotton ball on a spoon.

Game type:

Active. A lot of movement may be required.


6 or more players


Cotton balls and spoons for both teams 4 Bowls - 2 for each team


Determine a starting line and a turn back line about 15 feet apart. Divide into two even teams and have them line up at the start line. Put cotton balls for each player in a bowl at the start line. Place the empty bowls at the turn back line. Say Go!. Each player uses the spoon to scoop a cotton ball from the bowl and then walk (or run) to the other bowl and drops it in. If they drop it along the way they don't pick it up. Instead the return to the bowl and get another cotton ball (you'll want to have at least 2 cotton balls for each player just in case they all drop a few). After they've completed the task successfully, they race back to the line and hand the spoon to the next person. The race continues until one team wins.


To be more challenging try having the players use their other hand. Or to be even more challenging, have them pick up a cotton ball with the spoon in their hand and then put the end of the spoon in their mouth and carry it and drop in the other bowl with no hands (hands can only be used for scooping up a cotton ball).
