What's in the Bag?
What You'll Need:
- 26 Brown Paper Bags
- A Black Marker
- 1 Kitchen Utensil or Food Item for Each Letter of the Alphabet
- Lined Paper
- Pens or Pencils (1 per team)
At the Party:
- Using a black marker, write one letter of the alphabet in large script on each bag.
- Place a single food or kitchen item in each bag, making sure that the name of the object starts with the letter that's on the corresponding bag.
- If you don't have an item for every letter of the alphabet, remove the bags for those letters.
- Divide your guests into teams of two or three.
- Place the lettered bags on a table within reach of all of the teams.
- Hand each team a piece of paper with the letters A through Z (minus any letters that you did not include) written along the length of the left margin.
- When you say, "Go," each team grabs a bag.
- Without looking, each team member reaches into the chosen bag and feels the contents to guess the identity of the object inside.
- Once a team agrees on a guess, they put their bag back on the table, write down the guess, and grab another bag.
- As soon as one team has recorded a guess for each bag, all teams must stop.
- Announce the actual contents of each bag, showing the players each item as you say its name.
- The team with the most correct answers wins.
- Here are some examples for bag contents: A - Apple, G - Grater, O - Onion, R - Rolling Pin, W - Whisk, Z - Zucchini, and so on.
