Party Games for Small Groups of Adults
On a tray, place about 10 to 15 small items (e.g. pencil,

Sit everyone in a circle.
Place the tray in the middle of the circle and remove the

The winning team is the one who in a set time (say 2
minutes) have the neatest and most covered Mummy.
Contestants have to see how many marshmallows they
can stuff into their mouths and still say "Chubby
Bunnies". The winner is the one who can manage the
