Cookie Face is probably the funniest spectator activity. The contestants need to guide a cookie from their forehead into their mouth using only their facial muscles!
Contestants must sit in a chair with a plate of cookies beside them, lean their head back and place a cookie in the center of their forehead, then using only their facial muscles to move the cookie from their forehead to their mouth when the timer starts.
The rules are simple:
- Cookies must be placed in the middle of your forehead and not touching your eyebrows.
- You can tilt your head and move your face, but you cannot touch a cookie with your hands.
- The cookie must remain in contact with your face, so you can’t try to toss it from your forehead and catch it in your mouth.
- If a cookie falls before reaching your mouth, you must start over using the same cookie.
Useful tips for playing Face the Cookie Minute to Win It Game
- Tilt your head in the opposite direction from the way you want the cookie to go to provide stability.
- Use repetitive motions with your face muscles to slowly but steadily move the cookie along.
- When you get the cookie close to your mouth, slowly and gently tilt your head to get it to its final destination.
