Fall is coming, and with it comes FOOTBALL SEASON.

Some of you might be wondering about why I like football season. Here’s the reason why: football is kind of a big deal. A few years ago I noticed that and decided… I WANT IN. Having severe FOMO (you know, the Fear of Missing Out), I began watching football so that I could hang out with people. Football is actually really fun to watch! Just get past the fact that you’re watching a bunch of grown men wearing leggings jump on each other to keep them from carrying a ball past a line.

I’m excited to share a way with you to up your fun while you’re watching the game at home with your friends + family. The best part? These games to play with Skittles are quick and can be played during commercial breaks, so nobody will single moment of the game! Actually… that’s the second best part. The first is that they require you play with your food and use Skittles®. The other things you need for the games are probably already in your kitchen.

Drumroll please… I present you…

3 games to play with Skittles.

Skittles hero


Pour a bowl of Skittles, and surround it with 5 smaller bowls or cups (one per flavor). On the count of go, the player must take their spoon and try to sort the Skittles by color into their correct bowls. At the end of one minute, count how many Skittles have been correctly sorted. The person who had the most Skittles sorted is declared the winner once all turns have been had.



To play this game you’ll need two plates, a handful of Skittles, and a straw. On the count of go, the player has one minute to take a straw, suck up a Skittle on the other end, and transfer it to the next plate. This is especially difficult if people are talking/laughing while you are trying to do this. After everyone has had a turn, the person who transferred the most Skittles is the winner.



This game is almost exactly like the Spoon Scoop. You give each player two colors and they must fight to grab their colors out of the same bowl of Skittles. After one minute, whichever player has the most Skittles in their bowls is the winner.


Make sure you have an extra bag of Skittles to award to the winner. My mom dominated and walked away with her own 14 oz bag of Skittles, which I found at our local Fred Meyer in the candy aisle.



I hope you have so much fun with these 3 games to play with Skittles. Pro tip? Keep a bag of Skittles with you at all times. Then whenever things get quiet or boring, you can bust out these games to play with Skittles and impress your friends.
