FAMILY MOMENT MONDAY
I am going to dedicate every Monday's post to something fun you can do as a family. It will be anything from a good movie, to fun games, to creative activities, even ways to include your children in chores and errands. They can be for all ages or even for certain age groups. Things for a whole family or maybe even activities that the children can do as siblings.
I am still working out everything; AKA: Cute banner, figure out Mr. Linky, how people can participate and so on and so forth. But, until then (hopefully next Monday) here is my first Family Moment Monday.
Curtis and I love games, we don't play them as much as Curtis would like, meaning ALL THE TIME, but we still play them a fair amount. One of our favorite games is Bohnanza, where the theme is "To bean or not to bean!". Players jobs are to collect and plant beans in their "fields". The more of the same beans you collect the more money you earn. Everyone is continually trying to trade beans, explain why they need their certain bean, and trying to hand off other beans. It is a fun interacting game that can include a lot of people. You can have anywhere from 2 to 7 players. And the GREATEST part of all..... it is fairly inexpensive too, costing about $12 at some stores, but then $19.99 at others. So make sure you shop around.
It can be a little complex at first, but once you start playing you get the hang of it. I would suggest if you want to play it as a family that you sit down and read through it first and get your self understanding the rules; then try and teach it to children.
Curtis and I love this game because we love how we can play it just us two or take it over to a friend's house and play as a large group. We also just love the cute beans on the cards, they have the over excited coffee bean, a sick to its stomach green bean, a filthy gross stink bean, a hippie hemp wearing soy bean and many more. I think the cute cartoons are made more for the kiddies, but what can I say.... they crack me up too.
