Prep time the day before the party
The day before the party wet down the t-shirts with water and place in gallon size Ziploc bags. Fill the Ziploc bags with water, seal and freeze overnight. During the party break party guests into teams and give each team a shirt in a Ziploc bag. On "go" teams have to unfreeze the t-shirt by using only their hands, breath or bodies. The first team that unfreezes their shirt enough tso that one team member can put it on wins! place small toys inside an ice cube tray, fill with water and freeze. This game is fun and challenging!
For a quicker game or for younger children freeze small prizes in large ice cube trays overnight instead of using the t-shirts.
Pantyhose / balloons (not inflated)
Split players into two or three teams and give each team a bag of balloons and a pair of pantyhose. The teams must blow up balloons and stuff them into pair of pantyhose. When the team feels their pantyhose antlers are complete, one person from the team puts on the pantyhose. The team with the best antlers wins!
