Lots O Socks Games
Supplies: Lots of socks, laundry baskets
Kids have tons of socks and they are everywhere, why not put those socks to good use in our party game. We offer a few takes on a putting on the socks game and a sock toss battle game where accuracy is the key to victory.
Sock Game Prep & Play
a. Get to laundry baskets or containers and add the same amount of socks to each basket, 10 or 15 socks each if possible.
b. Now split the kids into two groups. The groups are told that each player will take a turn and have 30 seconds to see how many pairs of socks they can place on their feet. Once 30 seconds is up count how many complete pairs (2 socks – one on each foot) and score one point per pair. Single socks do not count as a pair.
c. Record each players score and at the end the team with the most points wins.
Sock Game Individual Play
Play with 3 – 5 players. Toss 15 – 20 socks into a single basket. When the game starts every player starts putting on socks. The game continues until the basket is empty. The winner is the person who has the most pair of socks on! Play several rounds.
Sock Team Relay Game
This version is a little different but has the same concept.
a. Split the group into two teams and give each team a basket with 10 socks in them.
b. Now line up the team beside each other and let them know that they must put on all 10 socks and then walk to a point or around a chair (placed in the room, best if one chair per team) and return to their team so they can take off the socks.
c. Once they take off the socks then the next team member goes and does the same thing. This continues until everyone has gone and if team are uneven just have one person go twice from the smaller team. First team done wins.
Sock Toss Basket Game
a. Set up two laundry baskets 10 or 15 feet apart.
b. Give each team the same number of socks. 12 – 15 socks (or two per player) for each team.
c. When the game starts, players must stay behind the laundry basket at their end and aim to land their socks in the other basket.
d. Socks that land in the basket, remain in the basket to be scored. Socks that miss the basket are picked up by the opposing team and tossed at the other basket.
e. The game continues until all the socks are in the baskets. The team with the most socks in the basket wins.
