My mom and dad were in charge of family night this month. They got the idea from my cousin (thanks Melissa!) to play games from the TV show "Minute to Win It". We didn't have a lot of time that day, but we had dinner and got three different games in.
First up, we had to try and roll a ping pong ball down a measuring tape and into a shot glass. You had to try and get 3 balls in a minute - one from each of 5, 6 and 7 feet. We didn't have any shot glasses, so we used other smallish glasses from the kitchen instead. Even then, only Paige was able to get a single ball in.
Second, we had to try and keep three balloons in the air at the same time for a minute. I'm not sure who ended up winning this one, but it was pretty entertaining and made for the best pictures I think.
And third, we had to put a cookie on our forehead and move it to our mouth using only our facial muscles. Pat beat us all at this one - I think it took him about 3 seconds!
It was lots of fun, and the best part is that there are lots more Minute to Win It games to try next time! Next month it is my turn to plan, so hopefully I can come up with something good.
