Christmas Countdown Day 22

Day 22.  Today we will have a minute to win it party.  If you have never seen Minute to Win it, you are totally missing out.  We often use variations of minute to win it games at church with our kids and they are always a big hit. 
There are tons of minute to win it games online (just google Minute to Win It). 
These are the ones we are planning on doing...
1.  Face the cookie (this is a fav at church)--need cookies for each player.  When the clock starts, players may put one cookie on their forehead.  The cookie must remain in contact with the face (you may not toss the cookie from your forehead and try to catch it in your mouth.  If the cookie falls, the player may reset a cookie on the forehead and try again.  To complete the game, the player must get a cookie into his/her mouth in 60 seconds (it is harder than you would think.)
2.  Can you stack the cups with one hand in one minute.  We will be doing this with 21 green party cups, stacking them in a pyramid shape (6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1)
3.  Christmas Cliffhanger. need a table and Christmas cards.  Prior to the game start, stand the cards horizontally along the edge of the table.  When the clock starts, contestant may start blowing the first card.  Contestants may not touch any card.  To complete the game, using only your breath, you must blow a card so that one side of the fold hangs over the edge of the table within the 60 second time limit.
Marshmallow Toss--Items needed...One wreath, Large Bag of marshmallows, one bucket
Have one person hold the wreath to their side and place the bucket behind the wreath. Players will have one minute to throw marshmallows through the wreath into the bucket. The player with the most marshmallows in the bucket after one minute is the winner!
Jingle Box--items needed--tissue box, 8 ping pong balls
\A player must shake all ping pong balls out of a tissue box that is strapped to the back of their waist. Make the box look decidedly "christmassy" and substitute ping pong balls with plastic Christmas baubles and decorate the box with red Christmas paper.
Do you hear what I hear?--items needed--7 gift boxes containing bells varying from 5 bells per box to 35 bells increasing in 5 bell increments, Table for boxes to be placed upon
Players must place boxes with different quantities of jingle bells inside in the correct order.
Snowball Fight--items needed--tape to divide room, paper for snowballs
Place a dividing line in the middle of the room. Players or teams will need to wad up the white paper and have a snowball fight. The player or team who has the least number of “snowballs” on their side after one minute is the winner.
The nut stacker--Items Needed:Candy cane, 7 larger sized in nuts and bolts (Check the size to make sure a candy cane could fit through the hole)
Hold the candy cane in one hand by the hook. Using the straight end of the candy cane (ONLY), pick up the nuts and place them one on top of another as high as you can.
