Peanuts Game

Peanuts Game is one of the fun indoor party games and adventure games for kids.

Any type of peanuts can be used: cashews, walnuts, almonds, shelled.

If you have a jar of mixed, use the different kinds.

This breaks the play up a bit and gives them different types to find.

It also helps them learn the different types of nuts!

You can also use additional items such as wrapped candy or pennies.

If you have a particular item at home and want to use it instead of heading to the grocery store, that's fine!

Before You Play

2 or more players
Ages: 4 and up
Need peanuts, small plastic cups, timer


An adult hides the peanuts (or other objects) in the room before the kids gather for the activity.

The room should have good places to hide the objects such as in drawers, under chairs or desks, or behind doors or curtains.

Each player is given a small cup and at the shout of "go!", all players begin searching for the objects.

When they find one, they put it in their cups.

After 5 minutes has passed, the adult shouts, "time", and players stop seeking and count their objects.

The winner is the player with the most objects.

Put some nuts aside and let the kids snack on them after they're done playing.


You can also play by giving the kids a certain number of objects to find. Say 10.

The child who finds all her objects the fastest is the winner.

To make it more challenging, you could have each child find 5 pennies, 5 walnuts, 5 almonds and 5 pieces of wrapped candy.


This is a great activity to play around Halloween, Hanukkah and Christmas.

Hide objects related to the specific holiday and let kids keep them when they find them.

Kids love to find objects, and if they get to keep them it's even better!

That will make them eager to play this at another time!
