A few weeks ago we had Fear Factor Family Home Evening. Scott and I discussed what the game was to the kids and how each of the foods are eaten by many people in different parts of the world. Nothing would make them sick or anything. All the boys were pumped and said they could eat everything. We also told the kids we would pay them $5.00, $3.00, $1.00 to whomever ate the most. Everyone else would receive $0.25 cents for participating.
Scott and I prepared all the food ahead of time and placed them in order from easy (to us) to harder to eat. Each of the boys had a glass of water and a napkin if they needed it, and boy did they!
Let the games begin!!
The very FIRST item to try was a slice of lemon! Lemon! And there were already tears! It was so funny!
A small glass of tomato juice was apparently not very good for the little ones either!!!
More crying. More tears. Lots of dry-heaving.
And with a black olive, Nathan was out of the game!
Hot mustard wasn't a big deal for Jackson, but he didn't seem to like some of the other things...
Will and Papa ate everything! Will won the $5.00. Tyler came in 2nd place and Gavin was 3rd. (You might be wondering about Jackson. He is our pickiest eater and was out shortly after Nathan!!)
It was interesting to see how some boys would down the item fast and another boy wouldn't touch it. Like Vienna Sausage! We learned that looks can be deceiving and how we shouldn't judge anything (or anyone) before we try it (get to know them).
Here is the list of items we offered the boys in the Fear Factor contest:
2. Tomato Juice
3. Black Olive
4. Vienna Sausage
5. A dot of spicy mustard of their finger
8. Dried sea weed
