We are just getting to the point that our boys (Cooper especially) are wanting to play games. We’ve done some Spiderman Memory, a little Cootie Bug and even some made-up games. It’s always fun to spend some family time together and we’re at the age right now that it’s fun to “let them win”. What isn’t that fun, is the same games over and over. We only have so many board games, only have so much space for them and aren’t going to buy too many more. But, we needed some spice in the game department.
Ever seen Minute to Win It on GSN? I’ve always loved watching it and often thought about how much fun it would be to play. What I never thought about, was playing with my kids. After reviewing a list of the games they have, and will be playing on the show, I was surprised at how many I thought would be a blast with the boys. The majority of the games require household items. Ping pong balls, solo cups, soda bottles and tissue boxes can make for a stellar family game night!
Case in point:
This game is called “This Blows”. 15 cups are placed near the edge of the table in a row. (You better measure the distance from the cups to the table, or the winner will be disputed. This is experience talking.) The contestant stands behind the table and with only the air they blow into a balloon, propel all the cups off the table. And remember, you only have a Minute to Win it!
The hubs happened to be out of town when we played, but we played with his Mom, sister and her husband. And of course the babies thought it was a hilarious thing to watch! Some of the people didn’t win it when we played and some did the victory dance.
Cooper had the best time. We played together, so I didn’t get pictures of us, but we have played tons since then. He thinks it is the best game ever.
