What Can You Do With…?
Contributed by The Family Dinner Project Team
This is a great creative game to play outdoors! Set out a small collection of basic toys or objects. Good examples include a hula hoop, a playground ball, a bucket or pail, and a Frisbee.
Now challenge your family: “What can you do with the…hula hoop?” Let each person take a turn thinking of a way to use the hula hoop, from the basic to the absurd (“I can balance the hula hoop on my nose!”). Then try finding a new way to use the hula hoop with two people, then three, and so on until the whole family is involved.
Repeat the game with each item you’ve got, and see how many silly and fun ways you can come up with to use these common objects!
