Holding Hands Game

Race your way into Friendship Day with this game! Learn how to play the Holding Hands game, a game of friendly competition and skill.

What You'll Need:

4 Dishes

20 Peanuts

Divide the players into two equal teams. Have each team line up and clasp hands by weaving their fingers together. Put a dish with ten peanuts at one end of each line, and an empty dish at the other.

The first player in each line picks up a peanut with her or his free hand and then passes it to her other hand -- the hand that is clasped with the hand of the next player.

The next player must use his clasped hand to pass the peanut to his other hand, and so on until the peanut gets to the last person, who drops it in the empty dish with her free hand.

As soon as the first player has passed the first peanut, she picks up another peanut and begins again. The team that passes all ten peanuts into the empty dish first, without unclasping their hands at any time during the game, wins. Hold on tight!
