My son loves Minute to Win it. It’s a game show where the contestants must complete a game within one minute. The games are silly, fun & most require simple household items – perfect party entertainment!
I reserved a City Park a little over a month before the party (FREE!) and started working on pulling this together…
NBC has a great list of the Minute to Win it Games. I watched the videos & created a list based on the ability of a 7 year old to complete the game & the cost of the supplies. Here’s what I came up with:
- Junk in the Trunk
- Elephant March
- Stack Attack*
- Wet Ball*
- Defying Gravity*
- Face the Cookie
- Variation of Suck it Up (inspired by Do A Little Dance)
*These games didn’t work out with the non-stop wind
- Empty Kleenex Box & Belt
- Ping Pong Balls
- Pantyhose (remember Walgreens Wednesday?)
- Bottled Water
- Spray Bottles
Homemade Cupcakes – I had most of the items in my pantry, but I did have to search for those red, white & blue sprinkles and finally found them at Albertsons for $1.59. I also opted for individual ice cream cups (much easier to serve at the park), $5.97 for 3 packs.
Party Favors, about $1.87 each. I found these water bottles at the Dollar Tree & added some vinyl lettering (from what I read, it will stay on as long as the bottle is hand washed). The candy is in sandwich bags, topped with a homemade label (these have a “please hand wash your water bottle” note on the back).
If you’re thinking about hosting a Minute to Win it Birthday Party – summer is the perfect time to look for Red, White & Blue supplies!
