Even More End-of-School Games

Players place a straw in their mouth and use suction to transfer a pile of 25 M&Ms or Skittles from one plate to another in under one minute. Only one hand may be used to hold the straw. Everyone gets to eat their candy when the round is finished!  This game also works well with 3 players competing in each round.
