The first of two movies based on the final book of The Hunger Games trilogy, Mockingjay, hits the big screen on November 21st. In anticipation of the movie, you could easily do a ‘Hunger Games Club’ the week of Nov. 17th.
‘Hunger Games’ Club Ideas
Call it ‘Hungry Games Club’
Award a camp scholarship $ to the final winner.
Divide into 4 districts and put everyone on ‘teams.’
When a kid gets eliminated, play a cannon
sound and put their picture on the screen with their name and their district
#. Download a free cannon sound here.
“CINNA”mon Toast Crunch Eating Contest
Give 6 students a small package box of cinnamon toast
crunch…see who can eat it the fastest.
Mark out a target on the ground with chalk or tape. Have
kids aim for the center with water balloons. Or draw/print faces on blown-up
balloons, tie strings to them, and attach them to some sort of weight to hold
them down…kids will have nerf guns, bow and arrows, to aim at the
Girl On Fire
Contest between 3 girls to see who can eat a bag of flaming
hot Cheetos the fastest. (Make sure to have a Gogurt or some milk around to cut the burning sensation after the game. It can’t be the #BestNightOfYourWeek if you can’t feel your mouth.)
Hunger Games Trivia
Use these questions shared by Alex Ridenhour here.
Two students put swim flippers on their feet, they put a
piece of pita bread on the flipper and flip it up in the air and, without using
their hands, try to catch it with their face.
For a mixer, each kid gets 2 balloons, one for each ankle. Their balloons
equal their life. If both balloons are popped, they are eliminated.
This Means Warhead
Get a couple of volunteers, see how many sour warheads they can
put in their mouth without making a face.
