Aren’t games so much fun when you have the room filled with family and friends? Here’s one from theidearoom.net that kids and adults of all ages can play…together! This is just one more way to make your holiday lighter and brighter. Happy Thanksgiving!
How to Play “The Best!”:
Choose a Host. If your family or group is large, arrange everyone into small groups (3-4 people). If you are smaller, then everyone can play as their own team. If you are playing with lots of people the rule stands that everyone has to participate in at least one round.
The Host is in charge of announcing the contest category for the group. (For example: “The Tallest”, or “The Fastest”)
Once the category has been announced, each group will select one person who they think can win the category. Be sure you don’t announce the contest until after each group has chosen their player for that round.
There will then be a contest in that category. If a person has “THE BEST” within the category, his or her team gets a point.
*if you are playing as individuals, everyone will compete in each category and the winner will get a point.*
Let’s run through a practice round…
Everyone playing that round would come together to see who had the tallest thumb. That person would then get a point. Here are some category and contest examples. Use these, and add your own.
-The Fastest….CRAB WALKER
-The Longest….STARE IN A STARING CONTEST
-The Fastest….ALPHABET SONG SINGER
-The Quickest….TO BALANCE 5 DICE ON THE END OF A TOUGUE DEPRESSOR HELD IN YOUR MOUTH.
-The Farthest….MAKE A PAPER AIRPLANE AND SEE WHO’S FLIES THE FARTHEST.
-The Shortest….SHOE SIZE
-The Biggest….WHO CAN BLOW THE BIGGEST BUBBLE.
