Minute To Win It is an NBC gameshow with challenges to complete within 60 seconds.
My eldest daughter decided to host a Minute To Win It party for her 15th birthday.  She collected the household materials for about 25 different challenges and tried them out, ranking them by difficulty.  Her 13 friends randomly chose 3 different challenges…and it kept them busy for about 2 hours!
She let me take pictures as she and her brother tried each challenge before the party!
