The Great Easter Candy Pass
Group size: 6 or more
Time needed: 5-10 minutes
- 2-4 wrapped Easter candies (such as mints, chocolates) per person
- Bag(s) or bowl(s) for each group to contain candies
- Printed list of questions
- Have group (or groups) sit or stand in a circle within easy reach.
- Say to the group: “In just a moment, you’ll be responding to 20 Easter-themed questions. Things like: Do you ever avoid certain jellybean flavors? Have you ever had your picture taken with the Easter bunny? If your answer to any of the questions I ask is “yes,” you’re going to pass one piece of candy to the person on your right. If your answer is “no,” you’ll receive but not pass any candy. If at any point in the game you don’t have a piece of candy but need to pass one, just skip that question. The person holding the most candy at the end of our 20 questions will be declared the winner.”
- Ask each participant to take two wrapped candies (you could increase this to 3 or 4, but they all need to take the same number).
- Read the questions to the group.
- Have everyone count up the number of candies in their hand to determine the winner.
Winner: The person(s) with the greatest numbers of candies wins bragging rights or a small prize. Let them eat their sweets when finished.
Notes: You may want to create several smaller groups rather than one large group depending upon your space. If they are already seated at tables, just have each table play as a group.
