Which Way USA Travel Adventure Kits

- - Kids

I remember growing up reading Highlights–a magazine specifically for kids. It was really cool getting it in the mail once a month!

Now, Highlights offers all kinds of fun kids products besides magazines.

Have you heard of their Which Way USA Travel Adventure Kits?

Every kit includes a map and a puzzle book that teaches children about the geography, history, and culture of a different state in the United States.

In the puzzle book, kids help Tripp and Scout race to the finish line by earning them points every time they complete the puzzles and activities.

Extreme Rock-Paper-Scissors

Remember playing rock, paper scissors? How about playing the game in a group setting to the extreme?

My office of 90+ employees meet quarterly for awards, updates and training and just for fun, we incorporate “not your usual” team building activities.rock-paper-scissors-trophy-thoughtful-gift-idea

In this game, employees battle it out to see who is the Rock-Paper-Scissors champion of the group, as losers of each mini-round cheer the remaining winners on!

How to Play Extreme Rock-Paper-Scissors

  1. Have each member of the group pair up for the first round of rock, paper, scissors. If there is an odd number, add the odd person out to another pair for a quick knock-out match.
  2. Play 3 games and the best 2 out of 3 will be the winner.
  3. The losers of the first match start cheering the name of the winner for their next game.
  4. All winners pair up and face off against each other while the ones they beat are cheering for them. When one winner beats the other, all the people behind the losing player start cheering for the winning player.
  5. Repeat this process in elimination until there are only two players left. Each should have a large group of people cheering them on from their previous wins. The game is over after one player wins the final match.

Win or lose, everyone participates to the very end. Continue Reading

KinderPerfect | Cards Against Humanity for Parents

Parenting is tough sometimes but it’s also hilarious, especially if you throw in some sarcasm and political incorrectness. KinderPerfect is a card game for adults who enjoy laugh-out-loud humor about the challenges of raising kids.

The game is simple. Each round, one player lays down a red question card and every other player lays down their funniest white answer card.

The person with the funniest answer card wins and gets to keep the red question card. The person who collects the most red cards wins the game!

Potential Answer Card: A freezer full of breast milk

Question Card: All I want for Christmas is a day without _____.
Potential Answer Cards: Toddler erections

Totally hilarious, right?!

The card game is similar to Apples to Apples  (kid and family friendly) and Cards Against Humanity (sexual and raunchy). KinderPerfect‘s humor is in between so you can play it with adult friends and family and not worry if someone’s going to get offended.

Plan a MEGA Date Night

My husband and I planned our first MEGA Date Night and it was legen…wait for it…dary!

plan-mega-date-night-thoughtful-giftA MEGA Date Night involves two or more date nights combined into one. My husband and I enjoy going on dates to see an Oklahoma City Thunder basketball game or to dinner and then a comedy club.

During our MEGA Date Night, we combined both date nights! We went out to dinner for some seafood, then attended a Thunder game, AND then attended a comedy club show.

Because I love to dress up, I even changed outfits between the basketball game and the comedy club show.

We had an amazing time doing some of our favorite things back-to-back-to-back! We felt like we were in college again we crammed so many fun experiences into one night.

Money Puzzles Make Opening Cash Gifts Fun

Give a gift they’ll have to play to win!

money-puzzle-creative-cash-gift-funMoney Puzzles are like a toy or game with a cash prize inside.

Kids and adults alike will love the novelty and challenge of receiving a money puzzle. Only by solving the puzzle or brain teaser can they access the cash. It’s fun to make them work at least a little bit for it!

Besides cash, money puzzles can be used to give checks and gift cards. They’re much more fun than opening an envelope or gift card holder.

Many money puzzles consist of a clear plastic container that allows gift recipients to see the money or gift card they’ve been given. It’s impossible to open the container until a small silver ball is successfully completed through a maze.

That’s what makes this gift idea so fun and different! The gift recipient must complete a challenge before earning their “prize.” Sometimes, the whole family gets involved and takes turns taking a crack at it.

Christmas Gift Giving Passing Game

- - Christmas, Experiences, Kids

I have four nieces and I almost always give them some sort of experience as part of their Christmas present. So I thought it would be fun to have them play a Christmas gift giving game.

I bought four presents that cost about the same price and that all of them would like no matter which one they received. I wrapped them up but didn’t put names on any of them.

Christmas gift giving game Dirty Santa White Elephant Gift Exchange

My nieces sit in a circle and prepare to pass their gifts left and right while I read them the story about the Wright family.

I gathered my nieces together, gave each one a present, and asked them to sit in a circle. I told them the rules of the game. Every time they heard the word “left” to pass their present to the left and every time they heard the words “right” or “Wright” to pass their present to the right. I told them to listen closely because the story gets awfully crazy!

Then I began to read out loud the following story. To make it even more fun, I read it quickly!

Hunger Games Inspired Wedding Anniversary Surprise

My friends Desi and Peyton love a good adventure. It’s no coincidence I first met them at a “Dirty 30” mud obstacle 5K race, and I’ve borrowed their snowboarding helmets. They not only love that kind of thing but they love experiencing it TOGETHER.

Desi came home to find a letter taped to her front door and two weapons – a gun and a bow and arrow – leaning up against it.

(No, the gun and bow and arrow weren’t real. I was just trying to be dramatic. Gotcha!)

The letter read:
