FAMILY FUN FRIDAY - Zip, Bong!
You don't need any supplies for this game. Just you, and your mouth.
The first thing to remember is that...
ZIP passes LEFT
BONG passes RIGHT
Now, time to play.
Have everyone stand in a circle. Select one person to start the game. He/She will either say ZIP or BONG. If they say ZIP, play will pass to the person on their LEFT. If they say BONG, play will pass to the person on their RIGHT.
Here is the catch. When they say ZIP or BONG, they have to do it without smiling, and without showing their teeth. (Go ahead, try it really quick, it's not as easy as you think :))
In fact, you can't smile or show your teeth the entire game, regardless of if it's your turn or not.
Once play has been passed right or left, that new person then has to say ZIP or BONG to continue to pass play. Players will continue to pass play right or left depending on if they say ZIP or BONG.
If any participant smiles or shows his/her teeth, they will be out. The last person who hasn't smiled/shown their teeth, WINS!
Want to make it even more fun? Don't hesitate to be silly and get in each other's space when you pass the ZIP and BONG. Being goofy makes the game even more fun. Plus, you are trying to get everyone else to smile and show their teeth so that you can win.
Does it get any better? Family Bonding, and learning right from left all in the same game.
Warning: This game is known to cause sore stomachs and cheeks, from all the laughing.
