Minute to Win It – Tween Challenge

Guess what? The Game Show Network (GSN) is bringing Minute to Win It back to TV! I am privileged to be able to share with you the recent announcement that Apolo Anton Ohno, speed skating champion, will be hosting this addictive and exciting game show.

It’s a new season, with a new host, and all new episodes of Minute to Win It premiering June 25th at 8/7c only on GSN! And see how you can enter to win a $100 Visa gift card, just by reading this post.

I know we loved to watch this show as a family, and my tween and I have been watching episodes on on GSN. She is absolutely obsessed with perfecting the Stack Attack challenge! But, I’m getting ahead of myself. If you aren’t familiar with the concept of the show, you will have no idea what a “stack attack” is. Let me fill you in on this super fun game show. The whole idea is centered around challenges of escalating difficulty using everyday household items. And when I say, everyday items, I mean cups, gum balls, liter bottles, cards, dice, noodles, cotton balls, just to name a few. I personally think it is so clever how the challenges are based on such simple items. It’s all in how they are put together in what is called the “blueprint” for each challenge. I also love, that these aren’t about IQ or how much smarter my 5th grader might be than me. These challenges require patience, practice, perseverance, and in many cases luck. Here is the kicker, each game or challenge needs to be completed successfully in 60 seconds. Each contestant has exactly one minute to win that level’s prize. It it nail-biting fun!

Summer vacation is finally here, and my niece has been visiting for a couple weeks. Since I had my two favorite resident tweens together, it was the perfect opportunity to have a little family fun, and orchestrate a Minute It To Win It Tween Challenge Day.

We had a blast planning our adventure. We watched a mini marathon of Minute to Win It episodes, and each girl made a list of their favorite games they wanted to try. Then we researched online to review all of the challenge blueprints for more inspiration. Then it was off to the store to get our “everyday” items for the 10 challenges we were going to play. Here is what we came home with and gathered from our house to begin the Minute to Win It Tween Challenge extravaganza:

Minute To Win It Supplies As you can see, we gathered quite the variety of random objects. Then we set up a “bootcamp” of sorts around the backyard and in our dining room. We created stations, almost like an obstacle course, set up with a variety of Minute to Win It inspired challenges. Here is a peek at the challenges my tweens tackled. (Note: I modified some of the challenge objectives from the original show to accommodate kids and availability of items):

Stack Attack

  • Objective: Stack 28 plastic cups in a pyramid shape, and unstack them all back in 60 seconds or less.

Stack Attack Minute To Win It Challenge for KIDS

This one was my tween’s favorite, as mentioned above. I captured her challenge on video, with my niece in the background holding the timer. Talk about down to the last second!

Face the Cookie

  • Objective: Using only your facial muscles, each player must move a cookie from the top of their head, down their face, and into their mouth without dropping the cookie.

Face the cookie minute to win it FOR kids

This was HI-larious to watch! I just had to capture it on video. I challenged each of the girls at the same time to complete the cookie challenge. Check out the funny results:

 

Noodling Around

  • Objective: Using a long piece of spaghetti in your mouth, stack 6 penne pasta in a row in 60 seconds or less.

NOODLING AROUND MINUTE TO WIN IT FOR KIDS

This one the girls actually find really challenging. It wasn’t that it was difficult to do, it was definitely hard to achieve in the time frame.

 

Card Ninja

  • Objective: Using regular playing cards, player must stick one card into the side of cut watermelon.

Card Ninja Minute To Win It for Kids

As you can see, this one was even more challenging. We all tried this one, and only got a couple cards actually stuck in the side of the watermelon. You definitely had to the right flick of the wrist and the perfect angle of the card to hit the watermelon and stick.

Baby Rattle

  • Objective: Player must shake gumballs from an empty 2-liter bottle into the other bottle on the bottom.

Baby Rattle MINUTE TO WIN IT FOR KIDS

This one was fun to make, and probably the easiest challenge to complete.

 

A Bit Dicey

  • Objective: While holding a craft stick in your mouth, player must stack 6 dice on top of each other on the end and hold for 3 seconds.

A BIT DICEY MINUTE TO WIN IT GAME FOR KIDS

Each girl mastered this one pretty quickly. You can just see the focus in their eyes.

Spoon Frog

  • Objective: Propel a spoon into a cup using another spoon as leverage. Must fill 3 cups within 60 seconds.

SPOON FROG MINUTE TO WIN IT FOR KIDS

My niece was a pro at this one. I caught her 60 second accomplishment on video:

 

Sticker Picker Upper

  • Objective: Player must roll an egg on a round platter using only one hand and pick up the 3 stickers upside down on the tray without the egg falling off.

STICKER Picker Upper Minute To Win It Game with Kids

We had many “accidents” with this one. Good thing we used hard boiled eggs for the challenge. = )

 

Sticky Situation

  • Objective: Launch a ping pong from one table to the other to stick one onto a piece of bread with peanut butter on top.

STICKY SITUATION MINUTE TO WIN IT GAME FOR KIDS

This was one of the funnest challenges, I think. I got pummeled with plenty of balls while trying to get the perfect shot. Good thing they were ping pong balls.

 

 

Nose Dive

  • Objective: Transfer cotton balls from one bowl to the other using only petroleum jelly on the end of your nose.

NOSE DIVE MINUTE TO WIN IT FOR KIDS

This one, I challenged each girl to see who could get the most cotton balls into the ball in 60 seconds.

Here is the hilarious challenge caught on video:

Are you inspired yet to try some of your own Minute to Win It challenges at home? We ended the day with each girl requesting a Minute to Win It themed birthday party for their next milestone!   Guess what? You could win too!

    I’m a public librarian, and have held three Minute to Win It programs for Tweens. The challenges are a great way to get kids off the couch and having fun together. I encouraged the tweens to support the efforts of their teammates, and celebrate all victories and attempts too. They were great about not giving up on a challenge until the last second. The library programs were well attended and enjoyed — I’m glad it’s back on TV, so I can run the program again!

    I think Jingle in the Trunk would be lots of fun to play.
    Thanks for the contest.

    Nose Dive sounds silly enough to be lots of fun.

    I tried some of those activities at the center where I work. I set up like 17 station of minutes to win it. They enjoyed it a lot. We played the nose dive, junk in the trunk, stack the dice, the elephant march and I had marshmallows they had to throw in partner mouth blind folded. I had a station where they had to find the gummy bears in whip cream on paper plates.It was messy but fun.

    Hi. I love that you explained great kid appropriate minute-to-win-it ideas. We’re having a minute-to-win-it birthday party for my 10 yr old twin girls (with up to 10 guests). They’re so excited. Just wondering if you had ideas about what to do for prizes? Should we give out points to the winner of each game and then award the prizes at the end? Should we use two teams or individual teams of two? Just want to find the best and easiest (budget friendly option). Thanks!

    • August 23, 2014 at 2:11 pm

      Good question Leila! I would probably do teams, and rotate and have one girl from each team do the activity. And honestly, the fun is playing the game for sure! You can make homemade medals or prizes like when we did our Olympic party for a truly budget friendly version: http://club.chicacircle.com/olympic-birthday-party-ideas/
      And then I would have a prize or a birthday party treat bag for each guest. Hope that helps!
      Have fun!

    This is the theme my soon to be 10yr old requested for her party. After reading this I’m excited to start planning.

    I found this while researching games to play in our staff meeting. This is a great post and I love the videos. I can see why the girls would really enjoy doing these games. I’m sure this will be a big hit with our department as well!
