Crossword Puzzle Helper
I love crossword puzzles. And I do them in pen. Not because I’m that confident–it’s just that I like the way pen writes on newsprint much better than pencil.
Sometimes I want to check to see if a word I’m guessing is correct before I enter it. And sometimes, dang it, I just don’t know the answer.
Here’s a nifty website that I’ve been using to give me a hand.
Capture the Flag Game
Need an outdoor activity? This is IT!
Game prep: Pick two teams. Team 1 has the front yard and Team 2 has the back yard, or a field was split between the two teams. The teams are given a time period, about 5 minutes, to hide their flag in their part of the yard. Click HERE for more
Team Candy Jar
Fun decoration that shows your team spirit – would be really cute on the buffet table next Sunday!
Fun craft that turns into a usable game – win! I think I’d paint my base color black and use bright paints for the pips (dots).
Bubble Wrap Game
Fun for the family, classroom or scout meeting!
- Roll of Bubble Wrap
- Masking Tape
- A Few Sheets of Paper and Marker (optional)
Directions: Roll out the bubble wrap and lay it on the floor starting at the door. Tape it into place. On each sheet of paper write a different instruction: (walk, hop, stomp, tip toe, etc.) Tape these down next to the bubble wrap ‘road’ at intervals.
When the kids walk in, they have to follow the instructions (hop, tip toe, etc.).
You can judge them by how many bubbles popped or how loud they are, or by the fewest bubbles popped and how quiet they are.
Either way, everyone wins because it’s awesomely fun!
