Saran Wrap Ball Surprise With a Twist
The Finished Product
What is the Saran Wrap Ball Challenge Twist?
While this is a game that is usually played in groups and at parties, we are currently practicing social distancing. We are not attending parties or social events. Instead we are looking for ways to entertain our children/grandchildren. We are looking for ways to connect with loved ones and ways to delight and surprise them. Many people will be spending birthdays and other occasions in isolation. Some people are in quarantine. Kids are home and bored. So I decided to come up with a twist that enables us to do this without the party.
Entertain Kids and Adults
This challenge truly has no boundaries. You can make up any rules and fill it with anything you like. You can make it for an individual or members of the same household. You can make it fun or funny. You can make the gifts expensive or inexpensive. Let your creativity fly! I have outlined suggestions for play in the next paragraph.
Easter Surprise Ball
After preparing my surprise ball, I thought about all the children missing out on Easter Egg Hunts this year. To make their hunts fun and interesting, how about making an Easter themed saran wrap ball for each of the kids in your home?
You will need:
- Fill-able plastic eggs
- Toys and candy small enough to fit in the eggs
- Egg/Easter themed chocolates and toys to fill in around the eggs
- You can even use Easter basket grass. That would camouflage the gifts and help round out the ball!
- Between 100 and 200 feet of saran wrap per ball.
Suggestions For Your Surprise Ball
Decide who it will be for
Will it be for an individual?
Will it be for multiple people?
Pick a theme
It can be age related. You can use their favorite hobbies, etc.
Pick something that works for varied ages, likes and dislikes.
Gather gifts, candy and/or money
In addition, can put in personalized notes for a fun touch!
You can also put in challenges like allowing an extra turn. IE.:take/lose another turn..
Clear a space for your preparation
Can you keep it hidden?
Will anyone be helping you?
Other considerations. You can determine how it will be used.
Even if for an individual, will there be a game? Are there rules? Or are you just going to let them go at it?
This can also be a reward program. If they finish a tough assignment or help with chores around the house, they can unroll a bit.
