Milk and Cookies Party Games + Free Printable Game

Free Printable Milk and Cookies Party Game Pieces from B.Nute productions
The gang has arrived for your Milk and Cookies party -- now how do you entertain them? Well, some milk and cookies games, of course! Below are a bunch of game ideas including a free printable to get the party guests running around and having a ball. Before you know it, they will have worked up a great appetite for the delicious milk and cookie treats to follow!

Milk and Cookies Party Game Ideas
Cookie Hunt
This variation on an Easter egg hunt or hide and seek can be as hard or easy as you'd like, and easily tailored for the age of your party. Print out several sheets of the free printable milk and cookies below. Cut them out so they are ready to go. Now, hide the cookies around your house, yard, or party space. When the party guests arrive and have settled down, hand each of them a small basket or bag and send them on a cookie hunt.

The Milkman Relay Game
Print out several copies of the free printable milk and cookies below. Cut out the milk carton images to use for this game. Divide the guests into teams. Give each guest a location around the party space they must "deliver" their milk carton. Line the kids up, and one at a time (for each team) send them off to deliver their milk. Have the same destinations for each team, but vary the order, so each person is delivering the carton to a different location. Depending on the age of the guests, you can make the delivery destination far away or close. First team to finish delivering all their milk cartons wins.

Guess Your Cookie and Find Your Match
This game is a great way to get guests talking to each other. It is better suited for older guests (say at a Milk and Cookies Baby Shower), since each guest will need to be able to describe cookie flavors to each other without saying the name. Print out several copies of the free printable milk and cookies below. Lightly tape a cookie to the back of each guest. Once everyone has a cookie flavor, tell the crowd to mingle and ask questions to others to guess their cookie flavor. Make the rules as strict as you'd like on what types of questions you allow, but just don't let them say the name. Guests must ask questions like what ingredients may be in their cookie, or the crunchiness of their cookie, or the smell, etc. Once the guest has discovered her cookie flavor, she can take the cookie off her back.

Cookie Bakers Relay Race
Print out several copies of the free printable milk and cookies below. Print enough that there is one cookie for each guest. Divide the party guests into 2 teams. Hand the first player on each team a cookie tray. Place 2 baskets of the printed cookies at the far end of the party space. Have each guest run with the tray to the designated cookie basket, place a cookie on the tray, run back to the line and hand off the cookie tray (with the cookie[s]) to the next guest. The last guest in line should have a tray full of cookies as he/she runs. If any player drops a cookie along they way, they must stop to pick it up and put it back on the tray. First team to finish with all the cookies on the tray wins. To make this game more difficult, you can put obstacles in the way of the cookie basket. For instance, the guest may have to run around a chair, crawl under a table (with the tray!), or jump over a bag of flour. Keep in the theme and think of obstacles that might be found in a baker's kitchen.
