8-) Wow, great idea! Try to fill a big pan full of cooked spaghetti noodles, or colored water and place a ton of bouncy balls inside and give the contestants a time of 30 seconds and whoever gets the most wins.
And for a food idea, use a numbered board on the floor and have them throw a rock to determine which hidden food they are going to have to eat. If they hit number 3, pull the lid off plate number three and show a cup of peanut butter. Give a certain amount of time they have to eat it in. Other food could be, pudding, pickle juice, mashed bananas, and mashed carrots.
Sounds fun! Good Luck!
