Minute to Win It Pizza Party

Between homework, track practice, dance lessons and… homework – our weekdays can feel downright hectic sometimes. So last Friday, I teamed up with Papa John’s to plan a very special after-school Minute to Win it pizza party for the kids.

They loved it – and so did I! It was a great way to celebrate Friday – and the start of a fun family weekend.

We LOVE Papa John’s pizza because of its great taste and quality ingredients!

The kids love their pepperoni and sausage pizza, and my husband and I love their veggie options. The kids think we always order Papa John’s because it tastes so good.

What they don’t know is that we also order it because Papa John’s has NO trans fats, no MSG, no BHA or BHT, no fillers in their meat toppings and no partially hydrogenated oils. And that’s important to us!

The pizza was delivered right when the kids got home from school. After chowing down, they were ready for the party games to begin!

Minute to Win It Games for Kids

With a 7, 6 and 4 year old, we created some special Minute to Win It Games that are perfect for kids. You’ll need a stopwatch or timer (I used an app on my phone). I had all three kids do a different game at the same time – and then rotate. But you could also have the kids watch each other – or get enough supplies for everyone to do the same game at the same time.

The kids played these games LONG after the official Minute to Win It party was over, and they’re already making plans to invite the neighbor kids over for another Minute to Win it Pizza Party!

Cut slits in the side of the box and weave your belt through the box. Fill the box with ping pong balls and give your kids 60 seconds to shake them all out. No hands!

For older kids, use a tissue box. For my kids, the larger cake box and larger hole made it a little easier for them.

Place the eggs on the floor and give your child 60 seconds to fan the eggs with the pizza box and move them to the finish line! This is especially great for younger kids.
