Minute to Win It...

Take 2!!  Several years ago on our famiy vacation, Josh and I planned a Minute to Win It game night.  It was so much fun and everyone had a great time.  After I found this pin on Pinterest, we knew we had to recreate this with a Christmas twist!  This is a great way to get everyone involved and really just makes you look silly!  There were 11 of us {not including Emma and Caroline} so we only needed several games to last several hours.

1. Balance the Christmas Tree
We started with balancing Christmas ornaments on a yard stick, resting on a paper towel tube.  Some made it look easy, but it was harder than you might think.

 It was a good thing that Paul and Andy went last, because they broke most of the ornaments!
2. Face the Gingerbread Man
For this game all you need are gingerbread man cookies.  You place it on your forehead and, without using your hands, have to get the cookie into your mouth in 60 seconds.
3. Reindeer Nose Dive
The only picture I have of this one is from my phone, but it was pretty funny!  One person from each team dips their nose in vaseline.  One end of the ribbon has a red puff ball glued to the end, while the other side is placed in the team member's mouth.  They had 60 seconds to get the ball to stick to their nose.  Let's just say those with bigger noses might have had an advantage!

4.  Catch the Ball
Here one person stood behind a certain mark and had to throw a ball into a cup placed on the other person's head.  Taylor and Maddy were the ones to beat in pretty much each game!  All of the rest of us are just getting old!

 Of course Caroline had to test each game out for herself!
5.  Pedometer
Of course we could not have played with out this game!  The last time proved to be quite entertaining so it was fun to watch everyone again!  We put a pedometer on a headband and whoever moved the most within a minute, won! 
For the grand finale we let people decide what order they would go in, depending on how they did on each game.  Everyone took turns opening a present with ski gloves on.  The present was a big box wrapped in wrapping paper with lots of smaller wrapped boxes inside.  It was hard to open, but the person who opened the last and smallest box got to keep whatever was inside.  We ended with a $20... and I got to keep it!  :)
I'm sure this won't be the last time we make fools of ourselves!
