Blind Burrrito Launcher
1. Get some water balloon launchers and some cheap burritos
2. Break students into teams of 5.
Blindfold the guys/girls who serve as the operators (1 shooter and 2 holders for the launcher per team)
3. Have the other two team members without blindfolds on work together to aim the shooters just right to launch the burritos at a target
4. The first three teams to land some burrito anywhere on the target move on to the next round
(Variation: You may want to have them do a practice round without blindfolds. After the practice round, say, “Oh! I forgot one little detail.” Then bring out the blindfolds.)
There are several applications you can use to tie this into a lesson or just use it for a way to have fun and make a lasting memory with students.
