Friday

FAMILY FUN FRIDAY! Shoveling Snow



For this game you will need...
Vaseline
Bowls for each player
Cotton Balls
A way to keep time
Prize for the winner (if you want)
Camera- because this will be funny


Arrange everyone in a circle sitting on their knees or sitting around a table. Place a dab of vaseline on the tip of each player's nose. Place a bowl in front of each player and a pile of cotton balls next to the bowl or scattered loosely in front of them on the table.

The object of the game is to place the cotton balls into the bowl using only your nose. Hands should be down or behind your back during the game. After 1 minute, the one with the most cotton balls in their bowl wins the prize.

We like to play by taking turns one at a time so that we can watch each other. We use one bowl, each player takes a turn and then counts how many cotton balls they got. We dump the cotton balls out and the next person takes their turn. This is a great time for pictures.

Our 22 month old little girl loves this game. She thinks it is so fun to put her nose in the bowl.

What do you think? SHOW OF HANDS. ARE YOU BRAVE ENOUGH TO PUT VASELINE ON YOUR NOSE?

Have a great weekend. Spend some time with your family.

  1. I love all your game ideas but some are a little too complicated for our three year old.... this one will be perfect however, he wants to do it with his dad on Father's Day, I can't wait to see my husband's face ;)

  3. Jumpin J, I am so glad this will work with your son. I try to mix the games up a little, so there is something for all ages. I will work to post some more for smaller children.

    Let me know how things go on Father's Day.

  4. LJ, DC and ML,
    This would be a great game for Girl's Camp. The cracker whack, skittles and M&M games would be awesome also. Tell me how things go.

    I will be at Girl's Camp in a few weeks also. Gearing up for it now. After Youth Conference in the rain I am praying for better weather. Watch it will be 102 degrees. Just my luck.
