This game had the most successful completions.
Player must blow off all the cards in a deck except for the joker (should be face up on the bottom). Players may not touch the cards or the bottle. Joker should remain on top of the bottle for 3 seconds.
Reassemble a cut up cereal box. First one to finish wins.
No one was able to finish their puzzle in 60 seconds.
Pencil Back Flip: (standing, no tables)
The kids did pretty well on this one. They experimented with pencil placement on the back of their palms versus the backs of their fingers. They also tried having all the pencils face the same direction versus alternating directions.
A Bit Dicey (sitting in chairs, no tables--I would use tables next time)
A few kids were able to get 5 dice to balance! They did drop them all over the place so next time I would do this over a table.
The program was held on a Friday morning from 11-12, which is the perfect time frame for 5 games. Players were in grades 4-6. We had 24 people attend, including adults, which is just about perfect.
