Civil War (Dry Version)

This game is played exactly the same way as Civil War, but you don’t use water balloons. The instrument is we came up to use is flour bombs. They don’t hurt when you are hit with them and they leave a flour circle where you were hit so there is no dispute about being pegged!

Directions for making flour bombs:

Dryer sheets: you can find them in the laundry section of your supermarket

Flour: any kind will do

Twist ties: you can use rubber bands or garbage ties, but be aware that most garbage ties have metal wire in them and could be dangerous. I use the small plastic electrical ties found in most hardware department.

Use 1 drier sheet and about 1 tablespoon of flour to make 1 bomb.

The great thing about this method is that the bombs can be reused over and over for about 5 games. Be sure to have a camera around, because the kids look like ghosts when it is over.
