Now, on to "Sundays in the South." If you're new to my blog, I like to get a little more personal on Sundays and step away from teaching to share about what has been happening in my life this week. Well,
I did manage to get out of my pajamas this weekend, but that may be my biggest accomplishment thus far. Sad. I know. But, like most of you, this week wore me out! Anyone want to sign my petition to change Halloween to the last Saturday in October?? School nights just do not work for this holiday! Speaking of Halloween, my niece and nephews are getting too old for trick-or-treating, so they all came over to our house for a bit of Halloween fun! We ordered pizzas, handed out candy, and played "Halloween-Themed Minute-to-Win-It" games in the garage. Take a look at some of the fun...
Who will get their partner wrapped with the entire roll of toilet paper first?
Who will make all of the ghosts (tissues) disappear from their box first?
Who can get a cookie from their forehead to their mouth using all facial movements?
Who can transfer all of their ghosts (cotton balls) using slime (Vasoline) on their noses?
Who can pick up a yardstick with batteries balanced on the ends, move it to the other side of the room, and set it back down using only their outstretched forearms?
Who can bounce a pumpkin ping-pong ball off the floor and make it bounce back up and stick to a piece of bread covered with peanut butter?
Bite Me, Vampire!
Who can be the first to transfer 5 paper sacks of varying heights (10", 8", 6", 4", 2") from the floor to a table in upright positions using ONLY their teeth? Only feet may touch the floor...no other body parts!
Trunk or Treats
Who can be the first to shake out all 8 pieces of candy from an empty tissue box tied to their rear?
A fun time was had by all and we decided we should definitely hold these game nights more often! If you want a copy of these "Halloween-Themed" games, just click below. I just changed the names on many of the traditional Minute-To-Win-It games to make them more "Halloween-y". :)
