Candy Party Games

The Great Candy Quest

Imagine a treasure hunt but with a delicious twist, it’s all about candy! Hide various candies around your party area and create a map or a list of riddles that lead your guests to them. Each candy or location could have a fun fact about candy or a little challenge they need to complete to “win” that candy. It’s not just about the hunt; it’s about the journey and the sweet, sweet rewards.

Candyland Comes to Life

Bring the classic board game to life by creating a giant version of Candyland in your backyard or living room. Use colorful sheets, cardboard, or painted squares to make the path, and have stations that represent different parts of the game, like Gumdrop Mountains or Peppermint Forest. Guests can become the game pieces, moving through the board on a quest to reach King Kandy’s castle, facing fun challenges and collecting candies along the way.

Chocolate Bar Bingo

Bingo, but make it chocolate! Create bingo cards with pictures or names of various chocolate bars instead of numbers. As you call out the chocolates, players can mark their cards with candy corn or M&Ms. The first to get five in a row wins a sweet prize – perhaps a basket filled with all the chocolate bars featured in the game.

It’s a sweet way to say thank you for coming and ensures everyone leaves with a little something different.

Candy Puzzle Race

Who doesn’t love a good puzzle? Especially when it’s made out of candy! Print out large pictures of popular candies and cut them into puzzle pieces. Divide your guests into teams and give each team a candy puzzle to solve. The first team to put their candy picture back together wins. It’s a great way to combine teamwork, strategy, and a love for sweets.

Sweet Spin the Bottle

Give the classic game of spin the bottle a candy makeover. Place different types of candy around the bottle, and whatever candy the bottle points to, the spinner must eat. To add more fun, include some exotic or funny-flavored candies. It’s a great icebreaker and guarantees lots of laughs.

Jelly Bean Guessing Game

Place different flavors of jelly beans into separate jars, making sure to mix some unusual or tricky flavors in with the classics. Have guests guess the flavor of each jelly bean they try. You can make it competitive by awarding points for each correct guess or simply enjoy the surprise and laughter that comes with tasting unexpected flavors.

Or guests can also create candy art by gluing candies onto paper or cardboard or even set up a Gingerbread decorating station.

Lollipop Garden

Plant a “garden” of lollipops by sticking them into a foam block covered in green paper or cloth to look like grass. Have each guest pick a lollipop from the garden. Some lollipops can have marks on the sticks indicating that the person has won a special prize. It’s a simple but fun game that adds a magical touch to your party.
