I come from a long line of game players and you can bet that if our family is getting together, there will be games being played. I’ve always looked at it as a fun way to bond with my family. I remember growing up and feeling like such a big kid when I got to play the card games and board games with everyone. Now as an adult, I still get excited for that time with my family. As my kids grow up, one thing we do a lot around the house is play games. They are the perfect quiet activity for our one on one bonding time during nap. I love having the one on one time with my kids and am so excited to share one way we have fun and bonding all at once.
Let me share a secret with you. You can thank me later. Ready? Spending one on one time with your kids, even with other kids in the house, doesn’t have to be difficult. Amazing, right?! It’s true. Maggie and I tend to play games while the boys are napping, but I have to get a little more creative to have that time with Charlie. Sometimes Maggie is playing games online, sometimes she is busy playing with her horses or princesses. Another thing we do is each kid gets to stay up late once or twice a month to play a game, watch a movie, color, etc.. with me for some extra one on one time. Charlie will just randomly come up to me with a game and ask me if I have time to play. I DO! If I don’t, I’ll make time. These moments matter so much. Not only are we making memories that will last a lifetime, we practice taking turns and he gets to learn how to be a good winner and a good sport if he loses the game.
I made the kids some fun little tic-tac-toe bags for Christmas and we love to take them wherever we go. They each have one and we switch out what we use for x’s and o’s every now and then. Well, this time, we were going to be playing some serious tic-tac-toe and I was ready. I picked up a package of OREO double stuf cookies that I knew the kids would be thrilled about, we had plenty of milk – GAME ON!
What I didn’t tell them about yet was the #OREODunkChallenge but I knew they were going to love it. I told them that we were going to have an #OREODunkChallenge so we had to try dunking our OREO in different ways. The reality of it all – I have dainty dippers. I didn’t know that was a thing. It was hilarious to watch them dunk their OREO in their milk. I am NOT a dainty dipper, in case you are wondering. Usually they hear me telling them to get their fork out of their milk or something else just as silly, today I told them do it, do it. We all had fun playing our one on one games.
It’s a good thing I always have a package of OREO double stuf in the cupboard because I guarantee, the next game day, they will be asking for more. Grab yourself some OREO’s from your local Supervalu using this store locator and let the #OREODunkChallenge begin. How will you dunk?
this is such a great post and my toddler also loves playing games like this 🙂 oreos are always a must for this pregnant mom too ha!
