If you are looking for the perfect party game idea for your next gathering then you have to check out this fun and easy saran wrap ball game idea! We played this last year at Christmas for both the adults and the kids and it was a huge hit. I’ll show you how to make the saran wrap ball and how to play the saran wrap ball game.
To create your saran wrap ball you’ll need several rolls of saran wrap (I used the red holiday variety) and prizes of various values. You’ll want to put the BEST prizes towards the middle of your ball, but spread them out. Here are some ideas of prizes I included in our saran wrap ball game (for kids and adults):
- Tic Tacs mints
- Target gift cards
- dollar store toys
- candy and gum
- makeup brushes
- sponges (cool ones like these)
- memo pads
- tissue packs
- headbands, hair accessories
- coffee gift cards
Once you have your supplies you simply start wrapping one item up and keep wrapping the saran wrap around and around in various directions, adding prizes randomly to it as you go. You can make yours as big as you want!
To play the saran wrap game you’ll need your completed saran wrap ball, a pair of dice and a pie plate or bowl. Begin by sitting everyone in a circle and giving one person the saran wrap ball and the person to their left the bowl/pie plate and dice.
To play you must keep the ball on your lap at all times and unwrap it as fast as you can while the person to your left keeps rolling the dice until they get doubles. Once they roll doubles the dice will pass to the person on their left and the saran wrap ball will pass to the dice roller. Once the person to their left rolls doubles the ball gets passed again.
Keep unwrapping the saran wrap ball as fast as possible the entire time the person is rolling, until they roll doubles. You get to keep any prizes you unwrap. The ball must stay on their lap as we discovered that without this rule someone can easily set it on the floor and unroll it in no time.
We discovered that it would be even more fun to let the kids have their own saran wrap ball game and the adults get their own so the prizes would all be age appropriate. It’s a TON of fun and it’s really easy too so any age can play.
