How To Play The Flour Game – Silliness Guaranteed!

Adults and kids alike will be lining up to play this game at your hoilday party!

Whenever we get together for Sunday dinners, we usually end up laughing hysterically as we reminisce about past holidays and other “funny family moments”. Honestly, there’s nothing that makes me laugh harder than listening to “family stories” as told by my kids, or siblings, or nephews, etc. Eventually we have to force ourselves to stop, or we’ll go on all night!

One of our recent reflections on “funny family moments” from days gone by was about one of our favorite holiday traditions… The Flour Game! We played this game quite a bit at our family parties when my kids were little, and it always GUARANTEED lots of laughter and fun!

I’m sharing it with you today so that you can include it in your own holiday festivities this year, if you want! The only thing you might have to go to the store to buy is a package of candy, but other than that, you probably already have everything you need to play!

The Flour Game

You’ll need:

  • Flour
  • Dinner plate
  • Teacup or measuring cup
  • Butter knives
  • A piece of candy (we always used Lifesavers)

How to Play

To play the game (according to our family’s version), you fill a teacup or measuring cup with flour, and packing it down firmly.

Flip it over onto a plate, then place a Lifesaver candy on the top of the packed flour mound.

Each person takes a turn cutting the flour with a knife. Whoever makes the Lifesaver FALL has to fish it out with their mouth! No hands allowed! As you can imagine, hilarity often ensued! As kids I remember we couldn’t WAIT to play The Flour Game at our family parties! It is definitely one of our most treasured holiday traditions.

We decided to “stage” a game so we could take some photos for this post, but even a “fake game” had my kids cracking up!

You simply CANNOT look at these pictures and not want to give it a try! 🙂

So why not implement a new holiday tradition this year and give The Flour Game a try??

Just make sure to take LOTS of pictures and share them with the rest of us! 🙂
