Family Game Night Inspiration:

This is a personal favorite of ours.  Our family is pretty competitive (it’s a healthy competitive, really . . . I promise) so we LOVE family game night!  Not only is this fun, it helps strengthen the family bond!  Every once in awhile we (adults) need to be reminded to have fun and act silly!  Here’s a list of some fun games that you can add to your list for the next family game night.

Get out your Paper and Pencil:

Charades:
Everyone writes down an idea on a piece of paper.  Each player has to draw a paper to see what they have to act out.

Pictionary:
Have a pad of paper on an easel or a dry erase board.  Everyone writes down an idea on a pice of paper.  Each player has to draw a paper to see what they have to draw.

Random Facts:
Everyone writes down a random fact about themselves.  The facts are read aloud and each player has to write down (on their own sheet of paper) who they think that fact belongs to.  The person with the most correct guesses wins.

Tag-Team Drawings:
Each player has their own marker and sheet of paper.  Players have 30 seconds to begin a drawing.  When time is up, everyone moves clockwise to the next paper.  Then they turn their “new” paper a quarter.  They then have 30 seconds to continue the drawing.  Continue to do this until every player has contributed to each drawing.

 

For the Gamers in Your Family:

Battle Royale:
Have 2 players compete in a video game.  Ex.  Super Mario Kart.  Winners from each challenge go on to compete with each other until there’s an ultimate winner!

 

Fun Prize Ideas:

Buy a trophy or medal at a local party store to give to the winner(s).

4 Ways to Organize Your Kitchen:

Check out these 4 tips that will help organize your Kitchen:

All mom’s can agree that somehow our kitchens become a catchall room.  When we come home, the mail goes in a stack on the counter, along with papers from the kids’ backpacks.  Whenever we find a knick knack or thingamajig around the house, where does it go?  Yup . . . you guessed it, it gets tucked away in some drawer in the kitchen.  Then one day we realize that our kitchens have become overrun.  Here are some great ideas that can help you get your kitchen back in order.

1.  The Dreaded Junk Drawer.  Let’s face it the junk drawer is a necessity, but that doesn’t mean it has to be messy.  You can easily and inexpensively find little storage boxes that fit nicely into a drawer.  You can purchase a few that can be used to hold different items.

2.  Sigh . . . Tupperware Lids.  Have you ever had to dig everything out of a cabinet trying to find the lid to a Tupperware dish? It’s so frustrating.  You can find a CD rack and use that to divide the different size/shape lids nicely.

3.  Get Appliances off the Counters.  Appliances take up so much counter space.  Clear your counters by getting an appliance caddy installed in one of your lower cabinets.

4.  Under the Kitchen Sink.  This is the place we typically just throw household cleaners, then shut the cabinet door and try to forget the mess hidden away.  You can purchase some clear storage bins to store rags and sponges.  Then you can purchase a rack that you can place your everyday cleaning products on (in their caddy).
