Jelly Bean Games

Jelly Bean Flavor Fun

Line children up in a single file. One at a time, ask each child to close their eyes and put a jelly bean in their mouth. See if they can guess which flavor it is. Use a variety of unique flavors to make the game more challenging. If the child guesses incorrectly, they are out but can help choose what flavor to give the next person in line. Keep playing until one person guesses the most correctly and wins a prize!

Guess How Many

Place a large number of jelly beans in a glass jar. Give each child a slip of paper and a pencil and ask them to write down their name and how many jelly beans they think are in the jar. Whoever guesses the closest wins the jar full of jelly beans!
