How to Play Couples Cotton Ball Shower Game
a. Have couples (teams of 2) sit back to back on the floor.
b. One person is given a bowl and places the bowl on top of their head. Cotton balls are spread in front of the other team member and they are given a spatula.
c. When the game host says go, the person with the spatula uses it to scoop up cotton balls from the ground and then place / toss them in the bowl. (They can not use their hands.) Each team is given 30 seconds to get the most cotton balls in the bowl.
d. Once time is up, the team that gets the most cotton balls in the bowl wins.
Couples Cotton Ball Game Variations
1. Each team goes twice, so each person can use the spatula and then add the scores together.
2. Make it a relay or race! Now you must get all the cotton balls (use 5 cotton balls if a relay) in to win or proceed with the relay.
3. Give each person a spatula. So both team members can work to get cotton balls in the bowl, however one team member must use one hand to hold the bowl and the other to move cotton balls. This version is the trickiest as the person with the bowl tends to move making it harder to get the cotton balls in the bowl.
