Hannah hosted a fun scavenger hunt party last year. Here is the link in case you missed it. Some of her friends were hoping we would do another scavenger hunt, and to be honest I nearly hosted a mall scavenger hunt, but then I found my mind and realized this might be a disaster...for the shoppers. Ha. So, we settled on our take of the show Silent Library.
If you haven't seen the show, it involves a group of people who draw cards. The person who turns over the skull card has to do a crazy stunt. Now the stunts on this show involve outrageous stunts that we would never think about doing because hello! we would have to face these parents and we want their children to be allowed at our house again one day.
So, we seriously modified some of the stunts. To get ready for the party, Hannah and I headed to our local Dollar Tree where everything is a dollar. Hannah and I had fun looking through the store and coming up with crazy games to play. We must have been a sight to the other shoppers when we found a few items that we were really hoping to find.
My little mastermind had a blast picking out props and clever titles for the games. And thankfully, all of her friends enjoyed the game although a few were a little nervous about what game they might have to play. Naturally, if they didn't want to participate they didn't have to play...but they all did!
We divided the group of 20 (Rachel was our helper) into two teams. And we didn't play with cards that had skull and cross bones, we used regular playing cards. The person from each team that drew the Joker card had to do the stunt for their team. If they finished the stunt before the other team did, then their team earned a point. The team with the most points won! But, there is always a catch, right? Silent Library is held in a library...a place where you have to be quiet. That's a tough feat when you are doing outrageously funny stunts. And it's tough with a room of 21 teenagers too!
Here are a few of the games we
Got Milk? Okay, it wasn't really milk. It was a concoction of Milk, Dr. Pepper and a shot of Buffalo Sauce in a baby bottle:
This game was called, "Got Spam?" Icky! Just the sight of my man pulling the spam out of the package made me queasy. These two guys were game for the challenge. The one on the right dry heaved the entire time but he finished it and he won for his team!
There were three packages inside. Without opening the package, the contestants had to crack open the liquid packet inside and then quickly throw it on the ground. The instructions explained that the package would swell up until it popped...and then the contestant had to get close to the ground and open their mouths to "eat" the stinky air. No, those are not the instructions on the back of the package....it was all Hannah. Now, do you get the mastermind nickname?
Her brave friend Sydney, who is a cowboy, didn't think twice about this game...he was all in! He gulped in the stinky air and proudly expressed it was, "The worst thing he ever smelled in his life!" And then three other guys begged to try the game too. And course, we obliged...we are great hosts like that!
All of Hannah's friends were great sports...and they all still love Hannah. A lot of them posted on Facebook that this was, "The best party ever!" Yes! I'm thankful we have a year to plan the next party.
