The Toaster of Destiny

To play this game, you need a toaster, a loaf of bread, and a bunch of different toppings. When we played it, we used ice cream, Nutella, marshmallow fluff, mustard, relish, ketchup, Cheez Whiz, hot sauce, and sweet and sour sauce.

Have the students sit in a circle with the toaster in the middle of the circle. Start a piece of bread toasting, and go around the circle, having each student tell something about themselves (these little tidbits can be either inane or thoughtful, doesn’t really matter – they tend to get more inane as the game progresses & they run out of things to share).

When the toaster pops, the student who was speaking gets served the piece of toast with some combination of toppings applied by the leader in charge of the game. The student then has to eat the piece of toast or, if you’re feeling charitable, only part of it.

You can vary the speed/length of the game based on the toaster settings you use (i.e. darker toast = each round of the game is longer).
