Tots100 and Center Parcs have challenged bloggers and their families to create a fun indoor game. See this webpage for more details, where Center Parcs Games Guru, Lisa Brown has shared her top tips. I am most inspired by Lisa’s tip number 3 which says Make your own version of ‘Happy Families’ by asking your children to draw your extended family – match up aunties and uncles, granny and granddad and you could even include family friends.
I suggested this to son1, but no he didn’t draw our extended family. Instead he drew the contestants for a Total Wipeout game. He then used Jenga blocks to create all the obstacles.
First all of his 24 contestants had to participate in individual qualifier rounds against the clock. These were Topple Towers, Sucker Punch, Big Red Balls and Rope Swing. The fastest 12 then went through to the second round – The Sweeper. Then the last 6 left standing went through to the Dizzy Dummies, where they had to spin round and round, get out and try to cross to the other side. And finally the first three to get to the other side were the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners. All like the TV programme, but in miniature.
Here are some videos of our family game.
This is my entry to the Center Parcs and Tots 100 February challenge. If I’m chosen, I would like to visit Longleat Forest.
