Bobbing for Apples in Baked Beans seems to be a Young Life tradition. Those guys know whats up. They had a huge influence on my spiritual development in high school and early college.
- Large Storage Container or Bucket
- Cans of Baked Beans
Note: The number of apples and cans of baked beans needed depends on how big of a container you are putting them in. Use your best judgement :)
Fill your bucket or storage container with baked beans . Add water to decrease expense. You'll need to stir. Throw in some apples and have students bob for them. You can make it a competition by timing them. The quickest to get an apple wins. You can still use one bucket and just have the contestants take turns.
- Bring Towels
- Get student volunteers ahead of time
- Play some carnival music
- Don't play this game right before a talk otherwise students participating may miss the intro or they'll end up holding everything up.
