Games to Play with Jelly Beans

Alright, first up, I have some classic games that will add fun and sweetness to any party you throw.

These don’t have to be used ONLY for easter party games. If you love jelly beans, you go for it. Heck, throw yourself a jelly bean-themed party anytime this year.

1. How Many Jellybeans Are In the Jar?

This is a super fun game that will go down in history as a classic. Its super simple and always a crowd-pleaser. You simply fill a large jar with jelly beans and have everyone write down their estimations about how many are in it. The person who is closest WINS!

2. Blind Flavor Guess

This is not the bean-boozled challenge. The only gross beans here are the ones that you personally don’t. Me? I don’t like cherry. So to play this, each player needs to blindly taste a random jelly bean and see if they can guess the flavor. They have one minute to try as many as they can. The person who guesses the most is the winner.

3. Jelly Bean Toss

You stack red solo cups in pong formation and try and see who has the best aim. This is a super simple game that will make your easter even more festive and fun.

4. Chopstick Jelly Bean Challenge

For this game, you are going to give each player a set of chopsticks and a cup. They have one minute to pick up as many beans as they can.

5. Straw Challenge

2 people line up on one end of a table, each with one straw and one jelly bean. They have to get their bean to the other end of the table, only using their straw to blow it.

6. Follow the Jelly Bean

You have 3 cups, and only one has a jelly bean under it. See if you can follow the bean as the cups get shuffled around.

7. Jelly Bean Spy Challenge

So jelly beans will be hidden all around the house. Teens and kids alike will spend the afternoon finding them; the person who finds the most wins. This is a bit of a harder game for the older kids to play instead of hunting for eggs.

8. Knock It Off

Two people sit at opposite ends of a table, each with a single jelly bean they have to protect. They each get certain materials that they can throw and fling to try and get the other’s jelly bean off the table.

9. Walk The Plank

Here is a classic jelly bean game that I think you are really going to enjoy. Everyone lines up, and a pop cycle stick is placed in their mouth. On one end of this stick is a jelly bean. The goal is to get to one end of the hard or room without it dropping.

10. Pick Up Bean with Straw

Every player gets a straw. The goal of the game is to get as many jelly beans into your team’s cup across the room, only using your straw and your sucking skills. You got this!

11.I Laugh When…

Here is a fun and simple printable that I think you are going to love.

See who can build the coolest house using only jelly beans and toothpicks.

15. Easter Egg Guestimation

You have 5 different fake eggs sitting on a table. Each one has a different amount of beans in the middle. You have to shake them and guess how many are in each.

16. Mouth Toss

For this you are essentially tossing a jelly bean into your partner’s mouth, and every time you make it, you have to take a step back and do it again.

17. How Many Can You Catch?

Toss up a handful of beans and see how many you can catch. The person with the most is deemed the winner.
