Homeschool Approved – Game “This Belongs in a Museum”

We recently picked up a new “board game” by Rather Dashing Games. This game is a GREAT quality, with heavy duty pieces and box so it is bound to last with the many hands in our family. You build your board while you are playing gathering points and stealing points with your archaeologist and mummy. The artwork on the game is awesome (however hard for Larry to differentiate between some of the colors being that he is color blind.)

Our family loves playing odd and unusual games. This one included. It allowed the kids to keep their interest in this strategy game that will be different every time that you play it because the pieces change every play. It does take 30+ minutes and is for ages 10+.

Penny for your GAMES

Griffen had been asking to have a birthday party. Since we moved to a bigger house this last week, we decided to let him have just that… What do you do for an 8-year-old boy?

PENNY GAMES!!!!

We chose 2 colors – Blue and Green (and bought decorations to match)

Game#1 – Run By Drop: for this game, take 2 egg cartons and paint them team colors. Each kid gets 5 pennies and as they are running by, need to drop their pennies into the egg carton. They get 1 point for each penny that successfully falls into the carton.

Game#2 – Penny Toss: Draw circles in the team colors on an over sized piece of paper and kids stand 6 feet away and toss 5 pennies each onto the paper. They receive 1 point per penny that lands in their color of circle… however the opposite team gets a point for each penny that lands in their color.

Game#3 – Penny stacking: Each person stacks as many pennies in a stack as they can in 15 seconds.  Each person receives one point per penny in their stack.

Game#4 – Gelatin Dig: add 40 pennies to each of 2 bowls of gelatin. put 2 minutes on the clock. Each child takes turns trying to get out as many pennies as they can using 2 butter knives.

Game#5 – Spoon Carry: 50 pennies in a kitchen spoon, run and carry them around the cones. Pass the spoon to the next player and they have to run the pennies – 10 extra points to the first across the line. 1 point per penny in the spoon at the end.

Make metals for everyone out of felt and add a penny to the center. 😉
