Cotton Ball Transfer
It works well for all ages, from 7 years up to 70.

- two pots, bowls or buckets,
- two chairs,
- a large ladle type serving spoon,
- a bag of cotton balls,
- a blind fold, and
- a timer.
Set up the chairs at least 5 feet apart facing the same direction. Place a bowl on each chair.
In one bowl, place all of the cotton balls.
Take the first player and blindfold him/her. Now turn them around a few times and place them in front of the chair with the cotton balls.
Place the large spoon in one of their hands and place the spoon on the edge of the bowl with the cotton balls (just to give them an idea where it is).
Set the timer for a specified time. About a minute is good: depending on the ages of the participants.
Say "go" for them to begin scooping cotton balls into the spoon and place them into the empty bowl on the other chair.
At the end of each player's turn, count the cotton balls that actually made it INTO the opposite bowl.
Keep a tally on paper until all players have had a turn.
The one to transfer the most cotton balls successfully is the winner.
It doesn't sound like much, but have you ever tried to scoop up anything blindfolded that you can't feel or see?
It's a hoot to watch them gingerly carry the "cargo" from one pot to another and not know that there's nothing on the spoon!
The best way to end the Cotton Ball transfer game is to trick one person (with a good sense of humor) and take away all the cotton balls in their bucket...so they THINK they are transferring something and they're NOT. Hilarious!
