MINUTE TO WIN IT GAMES

My kids love to play games and I love to do fun stuff for any Holiday. I used to watch Minute to Win It all the time! Do you guys remember that show with Guy Fieri as the host? Contestants had 1 minute to do something and then they moved on if they could finish it or scored a certain number of points.

These Valentine’s Day Minute to Win It games are a variation of that game. Do this with family, friends, at a Valentine’s classroom party, or for whatever else you have going on.

Either play as individuals, play in teams, play against the other team, or set criteria for moving on to the next level. For example, you have to stack 25 conversation hearts in 1 minute to move on to the next round.

It would also be fun to have little prizes after each round for the winner. Or, if you’re playing in teams, whoever wins a round they score 1 point for their team. At the end of all the games, the team with the most points, wins! 

There are lots of different ways to play so have fun with it!

HEART-A-STACK

What you need: 

  • Valentine’s Conversation hearts

Using the conversation hearts, player(s) must stack as many as they can in 1 minute. If your pile falls over you have to start over. At the end of 1 minute, the player with the tallest stack wins!

[I tried this, and I must say that it’s harder than it sounds!]

PICK ME UP, VALENTINE!

What you need:

  • Valentine’s Conversation Hearts
  • Valentine’s Mix M&M’s
  • Other small (same size as above candies) Valentine’s Day candy – this is optional, it’s just if you want more variety
  • Plastic Plates
  • Plastic Straws

Place candies on 1 plate and then place an empty plate next to it. Each player has to use only a straw to move as many candies from one plate to the other. After 1 minute, the player with the most candies moved, wins! 

The key is to suck up air through the straw to get the candy to attach to the other end, and then you can move it over to the other plate.

If you want to make this even harder have the plates several feet apart and the person has to walk between the plates while keeping the candy at the end of the straw. 

DON’T BREAK MY HEART RELAY

What you need:

  • Conversation Hearts
  • Plastic cups
  • Plastic spoon

Place a plastic cup that is filled with conversation at one end of the room (or space you’re using) and then place an empty plastic cup at the other end.

Each person has 1 minute to move as many conversation hearts from one cup to the other using only a plastic spoon.

At the end of 1 minute the person with the most conversation hearts moved, wins!

To make this more difficult, use small plastic spoons like the ones they use for ice cream samples. 

CANDY FACE

What you need:

  • Conversation hearts

Each player has 1 minute to move a conversation heart from their forehead down into their mouth without using anything!

Only their face. No hands.

Place the candy between your eyebrows and with your head back, scrunch and move your face muscles and nose and lips, to move the candy down to your mouth and eat it! 

BALLOONS

What you need:

  • 2 pink or red balloons per person playing (not helium, just the ones you blow up yourself)

Using only one hand, players must keep the two balloons from touching the ground for 1 minute.

If you want this more challenging, just use 3 balloons.

You cannot hold the balloons. You have to keep them in the air for the full 1 minute with your other hand behind your back. 

To make this easier for kids, let them use both hands to keep the two balloons in the air. 

BOTTLE DROP

What you need: 

  • Narrow neck glass or plastic bottle
  • Conversation hearts

Have the player stand on top of a chair (the cushion part where you sit) and try to drop the candy hearts into the bottle that is on the ground.

The player with the most hearts in their bottle after 1 minute, wins!

CUPID’S ARROW

What you need:

  • Plastic straws
  • Q-tips
  • 2 large bowls or trays
  • Masking tape

Place the bowl or tray at one end of the playing area.

 2-3 feet behind it (more or less) place a masking tape line.

The player must stand behind the line, and use the straw they must “shoot” cupid’s arrow (aka- Q-tip) and try to get as many arrows as they can into the bowl or tray. You will also need a bowl of Q-tips by each player.

[A tip: to do this you must place the straw in your mouth, load it with an arrow (q-tip), and then blow the arrow out the end of the straw and aim for the bowl or tray.]

*** I found some really cute plastic heart trays for only .97 cents at Wal-Mart! Perfect for this game***
