Cheeto toss

3.5 stars

Super easy, messy, fun game! Can work with small groups or at a Kids Camp up on stage.

Have a few groups of two people. One person will put shaving cream (or whipped cream) put all over their face. From a distance, the partner will toss cheetos toward the other person, trying to get them to stick. The team with the most cheetos on their face wins! You can either time the race or have it end when they run out of cheetos (obviously be sure to have the same amount for each team).

Note: Goggles are pretty necessary if you don't want soap in the eyes!

I've played this one before in children's church and it was always a hit. super fun game!

This game is extremely funny; as a variation,we used shower caps purchased at a dollar store or discount shop. We used shaving cream on the shower caps only. the teens sat on metal chairs 8 feet apart.Adults and teens alike are still talking about shaving cream and shower cap activity almost 3 months later

We did this game and the kids loved it! Beware- it is super messy. I like the idea with the shower caps.

We did this but with peanut butter and marshmellows!

A variation of this that we have played is pair up into teams and see how many Cheetos you can fit on (no tossing, just placing them). Team with the most Cheetos wins.

I did this game with my high schoolers at church, using shower caps, shaving cream and mini marshmellows. The partners sat in the same direction, 4-6 feet apart and the one tossing the marshmellow had to "flip" it out of a plastic spoon toward the lathered up head of their partner. It was a lot of fun and the kids loved it!

I did this game with our youth group twice. Our kids range from 6th -12th grade. The first time I did this I used Reddi whip & had the kids from 2 teams close their eyes. Bad idea! the Reddi whip was runny and got into their eyes. So next time I used well chilled Cool Whip and goggles. I also put trash bags over the kids to protect their clothes. 2nd time I did the game outside because it is very messy and the kids like to play in the Cool whip! Overall the great is a great success, it just needs a little prep work and clean up:)

This would be a nightmare and a trip to the ER for my daughter. Make sure there are no dairy allergies in your group or groups using the area after you.
