- Baby Food Guess - Contributed by: Lorna F. of Pinopolis, SC
Preparation: Take about 10 different baby food jars and number the
bottom of each bottle. Use a permanent marker or write on masking tape and
stick it to the bottom of the jar. Be sure to write down which baby food
goes with which number.
Directions: Place the bottles on a tray and pass it around to the guests.
The guests then try to guess what flavor is in each bottle and write it
down. After everyone has seen the bottles and guessed, then read the
answers. The person who has the most flavors listed correctly
is declared the winner.
Variation: Buy a stack of papered plates and write the numbers 1-10
around the outside. Then put a small spoonful of each baby food next to the
number. Give each guest one of these baby food plates and a spoon. The
guests then guess the food by tasting all the flavors! As before, be sure to
write which flavor corresponds to which number.

liked as a child, or one they used to read to their kids. Have them sign the inside

the guests, one at a time, and hand them a large wooden
spoon from the kitchen. Give them 30 seconds to scoop up as many cotton
balls as possible and place them in the second bowl.

gotten. The balls are counted after each guest plays. The guest who
transferred the most wins.
