How to Play the M&M Hold Game

Supplies needed:

  • M&Ms
  • enough straws for each participant
  • two destination holders (plate, bowl, etc)

The object is to race against a competitor trying to get a couple of M&M’s from one table to another while suctioning it to the end of a straw the whole way. No using hands! If an M&M is dropped, the participant has to start over.

This was difficult for some kids and easy for others. We thought it would be more challenging for younger children, but they did better than some older ones did.
