Banana split in the mouth

3.5 stars

This game is hilarious and fun for all!

Gather all ingredients for banana splits, icecream, banana, chocolate syrup, strawberry syrup, crushed pineapples, whipcream, nuts (or in case of allergies, sprinkles) and a cherry. You will need 1 for each teen.

How to play:
Seperate into teams of 2 and ask for one volunteer from each team. The VOLUNTEER stands in a chair and the other team member lays in the floor below with their head next to chair.
On go, the person must drop the ingredients into their team members mouth, in order.
The first team to get the cherry in their partners mouth wins

Person on ground must lay on ground and cannot help
Person in chair must drop food from ABOVE their waist (in other words, they can't bend down and just drop it in the partners mouth)
Ingredients must go in order and they must get a least a little of each in their partners mouth ( in the run out of stuff and they haven't got it in their mouth the person in the chair has to get the stuff off the floor and try again)

May want to lay down some tarps and play in an area like a kitchen or a laminate floor cause it makes a MESS!

After first round, switch places and they get REVENGE! Submitted by:

How many mouths do you fill per team. Is it just the two? The VOLUNTEER and the person on the floor?

In my experience this game is far more likely to cause a choking hazard that the Chubby Bunny game that you warn about (mostly because of media hysteria) I have ran the above game on many occassions but recommend that the volunteers turn their faces to profile, with their mouths still openor at least partly to the side to make it impossible for things to travel straight down the wond pipe.

Hey this sounds like a fun game, BUT I could be a real bad liability for your church. Make sure you run this by your Head pastor. Befroe you play it. Sry

We had the person lying on the floor put a bowl in their mouth (it had a small base that fit well in just about everyone's mouths) which added the element of "don't let the bowl fall over" and the kids loved it.

how do you get the bannana split in the persons mouth and do you make the hole banana split or do you seporate it into smaller bowls

When we played this game the only "choking hazard" we had was from them laughing so much! They had a blast and still talk about it. Also I made them eat each thing before they continued with the next. example: chew up the banana before anything else went it. And my pastor was fine with it

I like the sound of this game but it might go straight down the wind pipe and people could choke

I played this game for our youth group and everyone loved it! It was the talk of the night!

We had the victims wear goggles, trash bags and shower caps we purchased at the dollar store. Their parents appreciated it, they were still a mess, but at least it helped keep the car a little less sticky.

The only reason I don't like that idea is because having food in your mouth while laying down is a choking hazard, which I actually thought of before mentioned, and I didn't think of laughing and then chocking!

This sounds inappropriate. I do not approve of this blasphemy.
