Game On!

Popcorn Olympics

Is your family a little competitive? This may be a great way to spend some quality time together – and enjoy a snack. Whether you’ve only got time for one event or an entire Olympics-worth, here’s a rundown on a few suggested games that take popcorn to the next level. Keep score and see who takes home the gold.

The Straw Blow – Use a straw to blow a piece of popcorn from one end of the table to another.

The Mouth Toss – In this team event, two players stand a fixed distance apart and take turns trying to throw popcorn into the other’s mouth. After each successful throw, take 1 step back. The team that gets the furthest without dropping the popcorn wins.

Note: if consecutive successful throws prove too difficult, chose a fixed number of popcorn pieces to throw and see which team can move farthest away.

The Cup Drop – Stand on a chair and try to get as many pieces of popcorn to hit the target: the inside of the cup on the ground.

The Toss Up – In 60 seconds, toss as many pieces of popcorn, one at a time, into the air and try to catch them in your mouth.

The Distance Throw – Throw a piece of popcorn as far you can.
