Normally, Saturdays are great for me. I wake up, watch some College GameDay on ESPN, play around with my boys, nap, and end by watching my Oregon Ducks trounce another opponent with my wife. But alas, this weekend has carried devastating news… the Twinkie may be no more.
Update: Thankfully the Twinkie made it’s triumphant return, so feel free to buy boxes upon boxes of the tasty treat.
TWINKIE BOWL (TWINKIE FOOTBALL)
PREP TIME – 10 Minutes to Several Days
ITEMS NEEDED – 1-2 Boxes of Twinkies per Game; optional: Flag Football Gear
GAME TIME – 10-20 Minutes per Game
PARTICIPANTS – 14 Players (7 for each team), 1 Referee for each game
Twinkie Bowl is just football with Twinkies instead of footballs. You probably won’t have access to a full-scale field, so use some sort of markers (cones, shirts, shoes, whatever) to identify the area of play. Basic rules apply, and since it is Saturday, we’ll go with college rules for catching the Twinkie- one foot in for a reception.
Instead of kicking off, have someone throw the Twinkie. Same for extra-points, just do two-point conversions.
You can play tackle football or flag-football. If you play tackle, keep in mind that you’ll go through a lot more Twinkies! If you want to preserve your Twinkies a little longer, leave them in the wrapper.
1. You can make a big deal out of this game. Have a playoff bracket on a Saturday or make team shirts with a clever name involving Twinkies.
2. Make it an all day event or fundraiser with concessions. Possibly have teams pay to play (for a charity).
3. For extra points, have the person who scores a touchdown eat the Twinkie they scored with.
4. Have someone video the games and put together a highlight reel of Twinkie Touchdowns! Who knows, you might become a YouTube sensation!
This is a great way to have fun with a group of students. This will definitely inspire some laughs and create memories that your kids won’t soon forget!!
Stay tuned for another Twinkie post later today!
