Set the Scene...
 
 
  • The backyard is just the place for this fun afternoon with family and friends.  Picnic tables with checkered tablecloths, buckets filled with strawberry candies at each guests' plate and utensils wrapped in napkins and tied with raffia.
  • A "wash tub" for thestrawberry  bobbing contest.
  • Old fashioned bushel baskets filled with decorative strawberries.
  • Using poster board draw giant strawberries (18"-20"), cut out and hang from the trees (cut a head shape hole in the middle of one of these strawberries for a photo-op)!
 
Activities...
  • Start the festivities at your local Strrawberry U-pick farm.  Spend a half hour or so...The guest who has picked the most, the largest and the funniest looking strawberries, wins prizes.  All get to take home their strawberries. 
  • Bobbing for strawberries-  Fill a "wash tub" with water, add ice cubes and strawberries.  Set a timer for two minutes for each contestant.  The one who retrieves the most strawberries wins! 
  • Strawberry pie eating contest-  Fill aluminum pie plates (one for each contestant) with store bought strawberry pie filling, topped with whipped cream.  Ask the participants to hold their hands behind their back and on Ready...Set...GO, they begin.  First clean plate wins!!  (Great for kids...Of all ages)
  •  Strawberry Toss- Use a black sharpie to mark the seeds on small Red Water Balloons and tie green ribbons on the end.  Fill with water to make your strawberryballoons.  Place all in a large bushel basket.  Divide players into teams of two, facing each other in a long line.  Players toss balloons to each other, then one line steps back after each toss.  If the strawberry breaks that team is out.  The remaining team wins!!
