Minute To Win It Games for Kids

It turns out that Chuck E. Cheese’s and I have something in common! We are both turning 40 this year. I still have a few months to go but Chuck E. Cheese’s gets to celebrate this month.

To celebrate 40 years of fun, Chuck E. Cheese’s is hosting a world-record breaking party… A GUINNESS WORLD RECORDSTM record breaking party in fact!

On May 19, families are invited to visit their local Chuck E. Cheese’s to be a part of the “Most People Blowing Party Blowers Simultaneously for 10 Seconds” world-record breaking event.

Every child that comes in on Friday, May 19th will receive a free slice of cake and 40 free tickets, while supplies last, regardless of participation in the record-breaking stunt. The event starts at 8:40 PM EST/ 7:40 CST/ 6:40 PM MST/ 5:40 PST. Make sure to arrive 30 minutes before the event starts.

In order to get our family pumped for Chuck E. Cheese’s birthday extravaganza I rounded up some GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ records and turned them into Minute To Win It games.

We had a blast with these 5 GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ inspired Minute To Win It games.

Minute To Win It games are the perfect way to have some family fun. They can be used for celebrating a birthday or give you something to do together after school.

Minute To Win It Game #1 – How many chocolate candies can you eat in one minute… using chopsticks?

The interesting thing about this game was that we thought using chopsticks would be the hard part. We were wrong. Chewing and swallowing took the most amount of time!

What you need: small bowl, chocolate candies and chopsticks.

  • Fill a small bowl with chocolate candies.
  • Grab a pair of chopsticks (you’ll want a set for each player).
  • Set the timer for 60 seconds.
  • Pick one or two people to keep count as one player eats the candies using chopsticks.

Minute To Win It Game #2 – How many socks can you sort in one minute?

You have a huge advantage if you’re the one who does laundry in your house!

What you need: a huge pile of socks. (Make sure they all have a match.)

  • Dump all of the socks in a pile and mix them up.
  • Set the timer for 60 seconds.
  • Sort as many socks into pairs as you can before the time runs out.

Minute To Win It Game #3 – How far can you blow a pea in one minute?

You might need to get creative with this one, the best place we found to measure distance was around our kitchen island.

What you need: a small can of peas and space to blow the pea. 

  • Pick a pea from the can.
  • Set the timer for 60 seconds.
  • Blow the pea as far as you can before the time runs out.
  • Mark your spot.
  • After everyone has taken a turn, measure who’s pea made it the farthest.

Minute To Win It Game #4 – How many ice cream scoops can you stack in one minute?

This game can be altered a bit depending on the age of the players. Scooping the ice cream out is the hard part. For little players, you might want to have someone else do the scooping.

What you need: ice cream, ice cream scoop and flat surface (plate or cutting board).

  • Set the time for 60 seconds.
  • Scoop ice cream from the tub.
  • Stack scoops on a cutting board or plate.
  • Keep your ice cream tower steady!
  • See how how many scoops you can get in one minute.

Minute To Win It Game #5 – How tall can you build a block tower in one minute?

Bring out the blocks. Ready, set… build!

What you need: blocks and measuring tape.

  • Collect blocks. I choose to gather only two types of blocks for this game.
  • Set the timer for 60 seconds.
  • Build the tallest tower you can that stands on it’s own.
  • Measure the structure and compare heights after everyone takes a turn.
