Minute to Win it games for Teens

Looking for party game ideas?  

Minute to win it games 
are a total blast to play at any party!

minute 2 win it games, party games, birthday party games, party games for teens

First of all I scoured the internet for ideas and 
combined everything I found into 15 different games.

I would absolutely recommend doing as 
much prep work as possible before the party! 

Things to keep in mind when planning 

Minute to Win It Party Games

-Make a master list of all of the games 
including supplies and rules.
-Package supplies for each of the games in it's own separate bag.

- Plan to have the party in a large space.
We used the gym of our church

-Give yourself plenty of space to prepare the games.
I had a table to the side of the playing area
that held all  of the bags for each game, in order.

-Keep a trash can and a basket near by.
You can throw away the trash and put the reusable items in a basket, 
for quick clean up between each game.

-The games go quickly.  
The more prepared you are the more smooth it will go.

-Start with a get to know you game.
If you invite people that don't know each other very well
it's fun to start with an ice breaker game 
like this M and M game.

-Split into teams
I purchased a bunch of rubber bracelets in different colors. 
As each person chose a bracelet, 
the colors randomly split them up into teams.

Minute to Win It Games

Minute to Win it games for party - cookie move

Cookie Move
- a game for everyone
 Each person put an oreo on forehead and had to 
move the cookie to their mouth 
without using their hands.

Starburst Stack
-2 people each team
1 person puts popsicle stick in their mouth,
the other stacks as many starbursts 
as possible onto the end
must hold for 3 seconds 

Minute to Win it games for party - sticky note stick

Sticky Note Stick
-3 people of each time (all of the same sex)
put as many sticky notes onto a person as possible

Minute to Win it games for party - balloon up

Balloon Up
-2 people each team
blow up 3 balloons 
(3 was a little bit too easy, would use 4-5 next time)
keep balloons in the air without touching the ground

Marshmallow Toss
-2 people each team
1 person has to throw mini marshmallows one at a time 
to their teammate, who then catches them in an empty paper cup,
standing 4 feet away from each other. 

Minute to Win it games for party - skittle sort

Skittle Sort
-1 player from each team
Sort a pile of about 75 skittles into 
the corresponding colored cups with one hand.

Plate Race
-1 person each team
Move from 1 side of the gym 
to the other only stepping on 2 paper plates.

The idea was for them to start on 1 plate and step to the other.  
Then pick up the last plate, put it in front of them and step to it. Repeat.
Of course these were teen boys 
so they stood on both plates and skated across the gym.
They all laughed their heads off so it was all good!

Minute to Win it games for party - tissue toss

Tissue Toss
-1 player each team
Using one hand, tear the tissues out of the boxes 
ONE AT A TIME, as quickly as possible.

Again, these are teens, so they reached into the boxes 
and grabbed as many as possible. 
Cheaters!  :)

Minute to Win it games for party - noodle pick up

Noodle Pick Up
-2 people each team
Hold a spaghetti noodle in mouth and 
pick up as many ziti noodles as possible,
without using their hands.

Minute to Win it games for party - eat it up with fruit by the foot

Eat it Up
-2 people each team
Place the end of an unwrapped Fruit by the Foot 
into each players mouth.  
The object of the game is to eat it as quickly 
as possible without using their hands.

Donut on a String
-2 people each team
One person laid on the floor while their teammate held a 
string with a donut tied to the end, above them.  

The player on the ground had to eat the dangling donut 
without using their hands.  Then they switched places 
and the other player ate a donut as well. 
This was a favorite activity of everyone!

Minute to Win it games for party - blow it over balloons and cups

Blow It Over
-1 person each team
Blow up a balloon and use it to blow 10 cups off of the table

Suck It Up
-1 person each team
Each player had to move 10 skittles 
from one plate to the other by 
sucking them individually with a straw

Minute to Win it games for party - tear it up - shoot rubber bands at toilet paper to tear it

Tear It Up
-1 person each team
Each player had to stand behind a table filled 
with rubber bands and shoot them at
toilet paper and get it to break.

The rolls of TP were on a dowel that was balanced on 2 chairs.  
I taped the dowel to keep it from rolling off the chairs.
The toilet paper was tied to 2 empty soda cans for weight.

This was another favorite activity that they did over and over.

Minute to Win it games for party - pudding put down - suck pudding through a straw

Pudding Put Down
-a game for everyone
Players had to suck an entire cup of pudding only using a straw.
It was hard and multiple straws did not help.
But it was really funny to watch!!


These games were so much fun!
My 8 year old got to participate, 
so they are good for all ages.

Minute To Win It games 
are a perfect to do for a birthday party or anytime!
