Have youth sit in a circle. Each youth should select a vegetable that he or she wishes to represent. Go around the circle making sure everyone knows each other’s veggies. The object of the game is to say your vegetable name twice and then the name of someone else’s vegetable, thereby, passing the turn. The trick is everyone in the game must play without showing his or her teeth! This makes it very difficult to laugh and/or talk. Youth end up in stitches trying to hold in laughter while saying vegetable names. It helps when you get really cheesy and start hamming it up! “Brocoleeeeee, Brocoleeeeeeeeeeeee!”
