It’s time to get rid of the old adage “Don’t play with your food,” or at least modify it to specify; “At stuffy dinners.” Food can be fun, and if you’re looking for a great way to spend some enjoyable playtime, children and parents alike should look no further than DOLE Blueberries! If you’ve seen, or tried the Funny Fruit Face Kids Activity you know how fun an imagination, and fresh fruit can be! So with jubilation, and no shortage of pomp-and-circumstance, DOLE would like to announce your family’s first annual Blueberry game night! All you need are plates, napkins, an open space, and of course, enough freshly washed Blueberries to make the games interesting!
1. The Awesome Toss ’Em! For this game game you can play as singles, or pick a partner for a team match! The instructions are simple, lay out ten blueberries per participant. Toss them high, and catch them in your mouth! If you have partnered up, same rules apply; only you are tossing for your partner, whoever catches the most out of ten wins! If you are lucky enough to have a tie-breaker, each tied contestant must Toss and Pop as many blueberries as possible in a row, the one with the highest streak wins!
2. Stack ‘Em! This game requires plates and finesse. Grab the widest, plumpest DOLE Blueberries you can find, and see who has what it takes to stack a wobbly berry tower of three or more! If your tower falls, eat the berries and start again!
3. The New Fashioned Pie Eating Contest! If you have time, prepare one of these delicious DOLE Blueberry recipes; Blueberry Muffins, Buttermilk Pancakes, or Gingersnap Tart, evenly distribute a portion of what you’ve made to each Olympian. If you don’t have anything prepared, feel free to substitute a culinary creation with a fresh pile of Blueberries. The rules are simple, whoever finishes what’s on their plate first wins!
These are a just few examples of fun activities you can play with Blueberries! Feel free to invent your own as you play, and remember, with the DOLE Blueberry games, there are no losers, just happy, full participants!
