Valentine Minute to Win It!

Hello Everyone!
So sorry, but just a quick post again tonight. We are going to our high school's production of Oz!  Many of my former students are either acting, singing, designing sets, costumes, etc!!  I can't wait!!
I did want to share a quick little game we are going to play at our Valentine Party next week. We did it last year as well, and the kids had a blast!! If you grabbed my printable from last year, please download this year's.  It's much cuter! :)
Here's a pic of the gameboard and the directions.

You'll need to gather a few things to play this fun game, but it is worth it!!  Last year I raced my room mom to see who could get through the obstacle course first.  We barely made it in a minute!!

Thanks for stopping by for a peek!! Stay tuned!  I'm working on a fun fish unit for our habitat study.

Have a joyful weekend!!
:) Nancy


  1. this is really cute...I've seen minute to win it games all over the internet and haven't looked into them as much, but will definitely now! :) If we don't have time to do it this year, I will definitely set time for next year


  2. Darling Minute to Win It... but I do have one question: Does blowing the Pixy Stick dust make a really fun mess?

  3. Cindy, When you demonstrate for your class, you show them how to blow gently. I think I have a picture on last year's post. the kids really loooooove it! :)

  4. Ok what is a red vine? Do I give them a random amount of smarties or just a stick of them? Do we sort into tens and ones during the minute or after? I love this! Can't wait to try it!

    1. Lynnette,
      A Red Vine is similar to a Twizzler except they are red, of course, and when you bite off the ends they make a straw. You can get them at Walgreens, CVS, or probably eve WalMart. I give them a whole roll of Smarties. Try to sort into 10s and 1s during the minute, but most kids won't get that far! It is so fun!

  5. Adorable! You could do candy hearts instead of smarties too. :)

  6. This is so cute & fun! Thanks for sharing it :-)
