Cranberry Relay

Fresh cranberries in a glass bowl on a brown tablecloth

Whether you’re waiting for dinner to finish cooking or trying to get moving after eating, having an activity like the Cranberry Relay at the ready will ensure your guests are entertained.

Here’s how you play this super-easy, all-ages game:

Divide guests into two teams and set up a station at either end of a room (or outside) with two bowls and a tablespoon at each station. Fill one of the bowls at each station with about a cup of fresh raw cranberries.

Each player must carry three cranberries on a tablespoon to the opposing station without dropping any berries; if they drop one, they must start over. The first team to empty their cranberry bowl wins!

Tip: Fresh cranberries not available? Substitute nuts or acorns!
