CUP CAKE WARS!
I have a terrific idea for a GREAT activity for
A Family Reunion that all ages could be involved in
A Girl’s Night Out or Date Night — oh, the competition could be fierce, lol
Cub Scout Pack Meeting
Girls Daddy Daughter or Mommy Daughter Activity
Or for anytime you want to have fun with a group of people, it is:
Choose a THEME
You will need some sort of exchange or currency to work with:
Items to decorate the cup cakes with that can be purchased at the ‘store’ such as*: These will need to be separated/portioned into small cups or bowls
Each team or table will need:
the frosting you see in the picture I made ahead, chilled and then stirred. It looks like mashed potatoes, but it worked just fine.
Assign an amount to each item for store for purchase from your supplies*
Tip – have for FREE to make the game competitive, extremely creative and exciting: (NO cost but can regulate how many per team if desired)
To play the game!
Divide up teams which can be done in several ways such as:
Announce the theme
Each team has 3 minutes to come to the ‘store’ to see the items available for purchase.
Teams go back to their table and have 5 minutes to plan and draw out their design of their creation.
Each team is allowed to send 2 people to the store to purchase supplies
Allow 15 minutes or whatever is determined is best. Fifteen is great for kids, thirty would be good for youth or family reunion and maybe forty-five for a ladies night or date night.During the game have one or two ‘FREE’ times the store is opened for participants to come get a few new items you put up that are left over or that you put out that were not there before just to make it fun and interesting.
When the game is over, let everyone shine and show off their creation!
FUN TIME, FUN MEMORY, FUN TREATS!
Thank you Sharon so much for helping me work out the details and pulling it all together for the Cub Scout Pack Meeting!
