Family Fun

Rainy Day Obstacle Course: The boys took a roll of Painter's Tape (which is easy to remove from most surfaces) and made arrows all throughout the house - including up and over beds, and through various obstacles. (= It was a perfect Rainy Day Activity!! First, they got to spend a bunch of time creating it, and then they burned off TONS of energy running it over and over and over again -- all while I sat at the table sipping a cup of tea and timing them. It was a win for everyone! (= www.ShenaLeonard.com: Messy Table, Creative House

With all of the games we’ve played, though, Snake Oil is one of our FAMILY FAVORITES!! In fact, we love it so much that we bought both editions of the game so we’d have more cards to play with, and as soon as the third set is out we’ll be getting them too! (=

Rainy Day Fun – To Infinity and Beyond!

Rainy Day Fun!! I recently ran across these photos from awhile back of the boys playing “To Infinity and Beyond!!” One rainy day they came up with this idea – and they dragged almost every blanket and pillow in the house down to the living room. They spent HOURS playing this game
