Saran Wrap Ball Game

If you’re looking for a fun game for everyone to play at your New Year’s Eve party, you need to try the Saran Wrap Ball Game! This game is SO much fun, and SO easy to customize. It can be played anytime of year, with people of all ages.

Here’s how to make it:

Start with some plastic wrap and some candy (leftover Christmas candy works) and/or some small toys. I picked up some random stuff at the dollar store. If you’re playing with adults, you can throw in money, gift cards, mini bottles, whatever you’d like. You’ll also need a pair of dice.

Pick something awesome to go in the middle- the final prize…

Eventually you end up with a nice big ball of plastic wrap…

Now what…?!

Here’s how it goes:

Everyone sits in a circle. Choose someone to go first. You can start with the youngest, or even the player that rolls a 6 first. We chose to start with whomever rolls doubles first.Saran Wrap Ball Game

Going in a clockwise direction, while one person is unrolling the ball, the next person (to the left) will be rolling dice. Once that person rolls doubles, the ball and the dice are each passed to the left.

Game play continues to the left until the end of the roll has been reached…

If you’d like to add an extra bit of difficulty to the unwrapping process, I had my older boys use two forks to try to unwrap the ball!

You can also try some of these fun ideas from Awesome Jelly:
  • Try wearing winter gloves or mittens while unwrapping to make it that much more difficult!
  • Use Press and Seal wrap to make it a tad more challenging!
  • When making the ball, you can use one solid strip of Saran Wrap or individual pieces. If using individual pieces, try going every which way with the pieces to really make it challenging to unravel!
  • If you have a large group, try using two large balls and start them on opposite ends of one another.
  • Place a blindfold on the person who is unwrapping!

  • HIP List
  • Print

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the Hip List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, first head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing in classic view.

If you prefer to view in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you! If there are deals (or portions of deals) that you are not interested in printing, just click on the red x button to remove them. To restore a section, click on the green arrow icon in the upper right hand corner.
