Chocolate Games and Activities
Hershey’s Kiss Hunt
You can play this game during Valentine’s Day parties and even Christmas parties. Just hide Hershey Kisses around your room and have the children search for them.
P.S. Make sure you count the number that you hide and if they are not in easier places (or in plain sight), write down were they are placed, just in case some are not found.
Finger Painting in Chocolate Pudding
Mix up a batch of instant chocolate pudding. Dish onto one plate for each child (white Styrofoam plates work best). Let the children “finger paint” on the plate. Let them lick their fingers (and the plate) when they are done painting. Keep the camera close, this creates some chocolaty faces.
Science – Melted Chocolate
See how quickly the melted chocolate sets in small molds. Use a stop watch to time it. And then of course eat them after the experiment!
Use empty chocolate wrappers to create a collage. You could use Easter eggs wrappers as well as everyday chocolate bars. Makes a very shiny picture.
