My sister-in-law, Jo, is one of the more creative people I have met. She is a choir teacher, a professional musician, and the mom of two precocious children. Her response to statements of nonplussedness? “Boredom is a choice.”
As our immediate side of the family is spending the week on vacation, Jo has brought a panoply of items to be used in games that promise to both entertain us and test out a bunch of games she plans to use as icebreakers for the first few weeks of school next year. I would have loved to be in her class; you probably would, too!
These games collectively come from the show, Minute to Win It. The selection of random game items needed include:
- Paper plates
- Skittles, Whoppers, etc.
- Ping pong balls
Hilarity, and competitiveness, ensues. Yesterday, we did a relay creating and then deconstructing Solo cup pyramids. Behold Riley’s deconstruction method:
It’s looking like a week of games, like “Face the Cookie.” Life could be worse.
And why should we have all the fun? Here are over 200 Minute to Win It games you can try with an assortment of goods.
What I learned at life today: Solo cup pyramids erupt in cacophony when they crumble unexpectedly.
