Halloween, Thanksgiving

Baked Bean Bobbing

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.

Materials Needed:

  1. Large Storage Container or Bucket
  2. Cans of Baked Beans
  3. Apples
  4. Water

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.




Pro Tips:

  1. Bring Towels
  2. Get student volunteers ahead of time
  3. Play some carnival music
  4. Don't play this game right before a talk otherwise students participating may miss the intro or they'll end up holding everything up.
