We are pretty sure we aren’t the first ones to make up this game, but we don’t think we’ve ever played it before either. It’s a very simple game. Everyone gets a tub of dough and rolls it into a ball. Then the caller announces how many seconds everyone has to create something.
For example: “In 20 seconds, create a flower!”
After 20 seconds, the announcer says, “Hands in the air!”
Everyone put’s their hands up, and the judge looks around at all of the creations and a winner is selected. It’s not complex and there are many variations! The most difficult part, really is how quickly the clock goes!
We’ve had a blast playing this in all sorts of settings with all sorts of age groups. We left the last of our dough in Ameya though, so I think we’ve concluded our races for now!
