The Flour Game – Fun for the Whole Family

About a year ago I was searching for some wholesome family games that we could play at the campsite. I wanted to find games that:

  • did not have a billion tiny pieces, which we would eventually “misplace” anyways,
  • did not take up a lot of room in our trailer, and that
  • all four of us could play with ease – at the time my youngest just turned 4.

It was then that I came across the “Flour Game” on One Good Thing by Jillee‘s blog.

The rules are very simple:

  • Fill a cup with flour.
  • Flip the cup upside down on a solid surface, like a plate.
  • Place a candy on top of the flour mountain.
  • Each player then takes a turn cutting slices out of the flour mountain.
  • The person who makes the flour mountain topple over, must retrieve the candy using only their face – no hands allowed!



We played this game over and over again! The kids couldn’t get enough of it. It is a new camping tradition for our family! Hopefully it will be one for your family too!

Happy Camping!
