Giant Mr or Mrs Potato Head - We cut a potato shape out of mdf, then cut out several different mouths, noses, hats, shoes, and sets of eyes and ears. We drilled holes in the pieces and put screws in the potato from the pieces to hang from. This is a fun game for a large group of kids. I use it in my classroom to review the lesson. If you answer a question correctly, you get to add a piece. The kids love it!
