FAMILY FUN FRIDAY! The Paper Bag Game

You have got to give this game a try. Be sure you have a camera close by when you play.

Objective: To see who can bend over the lowest and pick up the paper bag, with their teeth. :)

Materials: All you need is a paper bag (grocery size). The best place to get them is at your local grocery store. Ask for paper the next time you are checking out.

This game is great for the whole family. You will get better at it the more you play.

To Play: Have your family stand in a circle, stand the bag upright and place it in the middle of the circle. One at a time - each person puts their hands behind their back and balances on one leg. They then bend over and try to pick up the bag with their teeth (still on one leg, hands behind their back). Once they pick up the bag the next person gets a turn. Once everyone in the group has taken a turn, rip or cut a layer off the bag making it slightly shorter all the way around. You can take as much or as little as you want. Once you have made the bag shorter, everyone takes another turn trying to pick up the bag with their teeth at the new height. Continue taking turns, and then cutting layers to make the bag shorter and shorter. As people are unable to pick up the bag they are eliminated. Keep playing until the last person can still grab the bag with their teeth. 

For smaller children that will find balancing hard, no need to make them balance on one foot. 

It is hilarious to watch your family as they try to bend lower and lower to pick up the bag.
Perfect for Monday night, or any night.

  6. When you know you can't let that confidential information fall into the hands of any stranger that will possibly get you into trouble, your best option is to shred them to pieces. What better way to do that than to let a machine like a paper shredder handle your shredding needs. Best Paper Shredder

  8. Whilst this is a better incentive and adds more to the game, if you didn't purchase Mass Effect 2 new, then getting a hold of Zaeed would cost you 1200 Microsoft Points ($15). Yikes.Adu Q
