This was my favorite game, so I saved it for last. Earlier in the day I froze 4 shirts in four Gallon-sized ziploc bags. It wasn't as frozen as I had hoped. I should have frozen them the night before. When it was game-time, I handed one bag to each team & on "GO!" the teams had to break through the ice. The first team to melt the ice from the shirt & have one member of their team put the shirt on, was the winner!
