THE GREAT DOUGHNUT STACK UP - This is a team competition. One player from each team is chosen to place a police hat on their head and sit in a chair. On “go”, the first team member selects a doughnut from a tray and balances it on their player’s head (hat). The player then stands up and sits down, trying not to dislodge the doughnut. One by one team members take turns stacking doughnuts on their player’s head, with the player standing and sitting between each round. The team with the highest stack of doughnuts wins. (note - allow the team members to adjust the stacks as they place doughnuts, but once their hand was removed they could not touch the stack again)
DOUGHNUT PASS - Another team challenge. Team members line up one in front of the other and hold a chopstick in their mouth. On “go” the first player picks up a doughnut from a tray and places it on their chopstick. They then pass the doughnut, without using their hands, to the next player. Passing continues until the end of the line, where the doughnut is slid onto a platter, again, using no hands. If at any time the doughnut falls to the ground, it is out of play. Once a doughnut leaves the chopstick of the first player, they may begin with another doughnut. Play continues for 3 minutes. The team with the most doughnuts on their tray wins. This is a souped up version of our Pasta Pass game.
DOUGHNUT DELIVERY - A tray of doughnut holes is placed at the end of the table. A bowl is placed at the other end. On “Go” the player has 1 minute to deliver as many donuts from the tray to the bowl without using their hands. Broken or partial donut holes do not count, only full holes. The player who achieves the most transferred donuts, wins.
DOUGHNUT RELAY - Each team is given a spatula and a tray of doughnut holes. A bowl is placed 25 feet away on a table. On “Go” the team places as many donut holes on the spatula as can fit. The player holding the spatula then walks/runs to the bowl and deposits the doughnut holes. If any fall off along the way, they are considered dead. The player then runs back to their team and hands the spatula to another player. Play continues for 5 minutes, or until the team is out of doughnut holes. Count up the number of holes in the bowl to determine the winners!
