A-Z of Summer: Apple Bobbing

Traditionally a game played on Halloween but why it’s still a fun game at any time of the year.

Find a big bowl and fill it with water, add in several apples and you’re ready to play.  Because apples are less dense than water they will float to the surface.

Take it in turns to try and get an apple out of the bowl by using your mouth only, hands should be behind your back to stop any cheating!

This game is probably best played outside as the water is likely to go everywhere. 

Apple Bobbing fact:
