This fun Christmas game called Saran Wrap Ball is quite similar to Hot Potato and other pass-the-parcel party games, but there are a bunch of rules that come along with it.
Christmas is all about laughter, joy and spending some quality time with your family. Of course, this means lots of fun games and here's something you could try. The best part is that it's cheap and guarantees a lot of fun! Trust me when I say cheap because all you need are some party favors and a roll of plastic wrap. This game, called Saran Wrap Ball, is quite similar to Hot Potato and other pass-the-parcel party games, but there are a bunch of rules that come along with this game that make it unique and is tons of fun to play with your entire family.
Awesome Jelly shared their rules for the amazing and entertaining holiday game, but it can absolutely be modified according to your crowd's vibes. There is a lot you could do with the rules to make them a bit easier or challenging. Aside from a roll of plastic wrap, here's everything else you'll need for this game: A pair of six-sided dice; party favors to stuff inside the plastic wrap (small toys, candy, gift cards, coins, and just about anything that will fit inside the ball). Oven mitts or mittens, but these are optional.
Well, here are the rules: The first person with the ball starts unwrapping while the person on their right rolls a pair of dice, trying to roll doubles. Once doubles are rolled, the ball is passed to the next player and the sequence begins again. The person with the ball does not stop unwrapping until the person to their right rolls doubles. This creates a wonderful suspense and urgency to the game! You get to keep whatever treasure falls out of the saran wrap along the way! You can roll the dice to see who starts with the ball first! (ie: First person to roll a six).
It's suggested that you put your best gift in the middle and there is no limit to how big you want the saran wrap ball to be. The publication themselves have come up with some more ideas on how you could possibly change the rules. You could use just one of the dice and pick a number that has to be hit in order for the ball to pass to the right! Try wearing winter gloves or mittens while unwrapping to make it that much more difficult!
Use Press and Seal wrap to make it a tad more challenging! When making the ball, you can use one solid strip of Saran Wrap or individual pieces. If using individual pieces, try going every which way with the pieces to really make it challenging to unravel! If you have a large group, try using two large balls and start them on opposite ends of one another! Place a blindfold on the person who is unwrapping, that will only make it that much more exciting! Now, it's time for you to try this out and see just how fun this whole thing is!
