Game Night

Morris' Exciting Game!

Morris' Exciting Game!

Try this activity on for size for your next game night: MAKE YOUR OWN!  Draw out a board (good idea to sketch it out first) on a piece of cardboard or poster paper. The idea is to make a sort of pathway that players can follow by rolling two dice (or one die! Its YOUR rules). To make your game exciting add ladders, skateboards, water falls, comet tails, etc. that players have to zoom on if they land there. Also add special squares that can make the player that lands on them do different things (get stuck for a turn, have to jump up and down and sing a song, get to advance 5 squares, what-have-you!) Really open up your imagination, and make your game as wild as you dare!

The game pictured above was made by my great friend, Morris. Doesn't it look super fun?! High Five, Morris! See you on Game Night!!!!

I am here to tell you that a can of gold spray paint can do wonders for your mood. Spray your old sneakers.  Spray your plastic dinosaurs. Spray a jar. Spray a shoe box. Don't spray your dog. Spray a barbie doll. Spray the fire hydrant in front of your house. Almost ANYTHING is vastly improved! Don't tell anyone, but if a little gold gets on my fingers or clothes while I am spraying, I am psyched!! The gold paint makes any old thing fancy and festive. I had a really ugly old green rusty bike and I sprayed it gold and it became the fanciest ride on the block! Try it! Gild it! Go to it! Midas it up!
