Family Activities

Items needed:
4 bowls
cooked spaghetti
small balls or marbles
shaving cream
Blindfold of some kind

-Fill each both with one item from the list then cover.

-Have your family or anyone willing come sit down and put on a blindfold.

-Then have each person playing stick their hand in the bowl and guess what it is.

-Guessing should only happen after everyone has had a chance to put their hand in the bowl. You can use the items listed or try others.

-Sit in a straight line next to at least 3 people, the more people the better.
-The first person will think of a silly saying and quietly whisper it to the next person in their ear.
-Then the second person whispers what they thought into the 3rd person's ear and so on.
-Until the last person says what was passed on to them. Is the first and last person's saying the same?
