Baby Food: Hot Potato with a Twist

You could play this game with your audience, or play this game just like hot potato, with everyone sitting in a circle. The twist is you use jars of baby food. When the music starts, you begin passing the jar of baby food around the audience or circle. When the music stops, whoever is left holding the jar has to take a spoonful. We use this game for special occasions, such as Thanksgiving, and use flavors such as turkey and gravy, sweet potato, green beans, etc.

*You may want to keep a garbage can nearby, just in case someone needs to throw up.

This idea of this game was great! I was nervous about the glass breaking, playing it with kids, so I but the food in diapers and they just had to smell them. It was AWESOME! The reaction was better than I could have hoped for. I was even able to tie it into my lesson!

Great game. I've used it as an audience game with several jars moving through the crowd. Always fun!
