Family Fun

We struggle to find games that are easy enough for Punk to join, fun enough for ChickenFried, and frankly the adults.   While on our little jaunt to Sioux Falls we hit the gift shop at the Arts & Sciences Museum and found a fun old/new game perfect for everyone.  Don’t groan when I say this — Charades for Kids.  Yeah, I know …. charades …. you might picture a bunch of old people drinking white wine with nothing better to do on a Sat night (oh wait, that could be us?).  But really, it’s fun.


The cards are just drawings, so Punk can figure some out for herself.  When she drew the “dog” card, she got on all fours and panted.  We knew exactly what it was.   ChickenFried is pretty good at both acting things out and guessing.  The kids beg to play it every night. 

We got the travel version, which is nice because you can just play four cards each and then you’re done … no one wins or loses kind of thing.   Granted, there aren’t a lot of cards so we’ll have to start making up our own one of these nights, but it was $10 well spent nonetheless.
