Guess how many candies are in the jar!

Game type:

Active. A lot of movement may be required.


4 or more players


Candy and a jar


Have all the players determine a guessing order. One way is to write numbers on small pieces of paper and have them draw from a jar. This won\'t be necessary if the players are all very young (4-5 year old or less) but order will make a difference in this game. Fill a large jar with a mix of wrapped candies (such as Brachs), but make sure you know how many went in! The players have to take turns guessing the total number of candies in the jar. As each player takes a guess, tell the rest whether the true number is higher or lower than the last guess - this makes the game a little easier for them! Eventually one person wins and gets the candy! They should be encouraged to share!
