Family Fun Friday - FILL THE CUP!


It has been a while since we have had a Family Fun Friday. But with school out, it is time for some fun and some new ideas, Don't you think?

In honor of the crazy hot temperatures that are hitting here in Utah today, (they say it will hit 99 degrees. Yikes!) This game is going to help your family get active, and get outside and cool off. And, laugh a lot in the process. It is normal when kids get out of school, to find them in front of technology a lot. Tame the technology and encourage your kids to play outside for at least 60 minutes a day. This game, and the water fight that will most likely follow, will keep them entertained for at least an hour.

This game would be perfect for children's birthday parties too. Another tip, I like to get my mirrors, pitchers, and cups at the dollar store. That way you can get as many as you need, without breaking the bank.

Here is what you need.

Clear Plastic Cups
Small Handheld Mirrors (1 mirror for every two people)
Blindfolds
Pitchers (Or fairly large cups)
Water Supply

How to Play...

Divide your family into teams of 2.

Each team is given a plastic cup, mirror, and pitcher or cup of water. If you go with the cup, you will want it to be pretty big.

Have one teammate sit down on the ground, and with one hand, hold the empty cup on their head. With the other hand, they will hold the mirror in front of them.

The second teammate stands, blindfolded, above their partner who is sitting on the groud and holds the pitcher (or large cup) full of water.

Here is where things get good. The teammate on the ground with the mirrow, now has to use the mirror to direct their blindfolded partner. Giving them directions to fill the cup up with water that is ON THEIR HEAD! Yep, plan to get a bit wet.

Teammates are not allowed to touch one another, only direct with verbal feedback as to what teammate two has to do to pour the water from the pitcher into the empty cup on the top of their partners head.

Once the cup is full, the teammates switch places and do it again. This time the one who poured is on the ground with the mirror, and the one who sat the first round is now blindfolded and pouring.

The first team to finish both tasks, WINS!

Your entire family will love this game. Just don't be suprised if it turns into a water fight at the end.

  9. Hello, my name is RITA CARMEN and I have been trying to get pregnant for over 12 years. i have been looking for ways online for so long, I first did Depo Provera Shot which i consecutively took every three months in order to get pregnant or fertile, but there was no way from it. I did Depo shot for 3 years constantly until my Doctors in Australia told me to try IVF because I had Endometriosis stage 4 and I resulted to try IVF (In Vitro Fertilization). For months after my IVF no progressed and my situation became worse that my husband had already had plans or getting married to another woman because I was barren. I read a testimony about Prophet Abulele how he had helped so many women with pregnancy problems and also how he usually casts return spells to bring back partner and make one fertile. Of all options tried, I gave Prophet Abulele a try. I am now a mother of a baby boy. For over 13 years of my marriage I received my help from this spell caster. I want to impact on someone's life and make the person get help from a good spell caster. Prophet Abulele's email is:- prophetabulelehealingtemple@gmail.com and his WhatsApp is +2349022406159 once you contact him, he will help you fast.
