A fun variation on the well-known game, 'Bobbing for Apples.'


Apples are tied on strings and hung from the door frame (with the door open!). The idea is the same as for bobbing apples - each person tries to catch an apple in their teeth without using their hands at all. This can also be done with sticky buns; it is rather messy but great fun.
