Could you balance 6 dice on a popsicle stick held in your mouth for 1 minute? How about removing all the tissues from a tissue box with only 1 hand?
Do you watch NBC’s Minute To Win It each week and wish you could try these crazy challenges? If so, it might just be time to host a Minute To Win It Party!
How to Host a Minute To Win It Party
- This party is ideal for preteens, teens, a girl’s night or adult couples.
- Invitations: purchase inexpensive stopwatches and attach the party details to the stopwatch. The stopwatch also becomes a great party favor!
- Choose your challenges based on the age of the guests and supplies you have on hand…this will keep it budget friendly!
- All challenges are done by 2 person teams, so when guests arrive have them reach into a hat to find out which team they are on. Add to the fun by coming up with silly names for the teams!
- Keep it simple, no complicated rules, afterall…we’re playing for prizes not a million dollars!
- Each team to complete the challenge in 1 minute or less will be awarded 1 point.
- All teams will start the challenge at the same time. Make sure to have plenty of family members to help keep time and monitor that the challenges are being done correctly. There are a few challenges that will be easier to do 1 team at a time like Foul Shot.
- Buy an assortment of prizes, and the team with the most points gets first choice! Second place gets second choice, third place gets third choice and so on.
