100 Dice Game
Family members sees our time spent with them valuable and worth more than any amount of money. Scheduling in games to play together be a cherished memory their whole life through. Playing games is perfect way to have FUN, teach sportsmanship, how to win graciously and lose civilly – both necessary life skills.    

Game Time!

  Game Time 1 Milk Jug & Ball Toss Quick to throw together anytime and for any age Two Games: First is a toss game for 2 players to as many as you’d like. Simply cut clean milk jugs out of one side. Holding the handle, toss the ball to the other player who catches the ball with their milk jug.   Game Time 2  Second Game: Using clean empty milk jugs or cartons, mark points on each. Adjusting for the age of the participants, place the containers far or close for the ball toss. Add up the points as players toss the ball.

 Candy Bar Game Here is a GREAT fam­ily or group activity. There is lit­tle prepa­ra­tion, inex­pen­sive and will get every­one involved for a great time.  Sup­plies: Scarf, hat, jacket, gloves (bulk, inex­pen­sive gar­den gloves work really well here) Frozen large candy bar Tin dis­pos­able pan (I’d dou­ble it up) Large table spoon 2 Dice Instruc­tions: Place the wrapped and frozen Roll dice to see who begins first. The player who rolls the high­est begins. The begin­ner player at the ‘GO’ hur­ries to put on the scarf, hat, jacket and gloves. He works to unwrap the candy bar while wear­ing the gloves (and other cloth­ing) and with the spoon breaks off pieces of the candy bar to eat. RULE: to eat the candy bar, the player must take off the gloves, eat it com­pletely, put on the gloves and con­tinue (ok, I don’t share my straw in my drink either) MEANWHILE the other play­ers are rolling the dice. The player sit­ting next to the begin­ner rolls first and gets ONE roll. If they get a dou­ble six, all yell “DOUBLES” and the player with the candy has to take off any of the cloth­ing and pass it with the candy bar and spoon to the player who rolled Doubles. If the player did not roll dou­bles on their only shake, they quickly pass the dice to the next player. This con­tin­ues as quickly as pos­si­ble allow­ing a player to roll dou­bles, pre­vent­ing any one player from eat­ing the candy bar. Have fun and enjoy the treat — if you roll doubles!

Oh, it’s time for some fam­ily FUN! This FUN game is called 100 and will fit the bill per­fectly for 3 play­ers  and up. It’s for any age that can write their num­bers OR roll the dice while a par­ent writes. Low prep, easy to play and great for any time and anywhere! Stan’s brother Brad and his wife Ruthann are some of the most fun peo­ple I know. They love to play games as a fam­ily and taught us this one a few years back. It’s called 100 and is a ter­rific game to take along any­where to play any­time.
Sup­plies: 2 dice (6 sided dice) Small pieces of paper, one per player Pen — one that is smooth such as shown   Direc­tions: Each player takes one piece of paper and rolls ONE die. The high roll begins the game. The player to the left of the begin­ner player gets the pen and at “GO” begins to write 1,2,3,4, etc. Mean­while the per­son with the dice is rolling BOTH dice and if the per­son rolls any­thing but dou­ble SIX’S after rolling, passes the dice to the next per­son, skip­ping the per­son with the pen. The next per­son quickly rolls, also try­ing to roll DOUBLE SIXES. If a dou­ble six is rolled, the per­son who rolled it grabs the pen from the per­son writ­ing and begins to write on their own paper 1,2,3, and on. The next player grabs the dice and rolls. If they get a DOUBLE SIX they grab the pen and write their 1,2,3, etc. If not, the next per­son gets the dice. If a per­son rolls DOUBLE SIXES and has already begun to write num­bers on their paper, they pick up where they left off. When a player reaches 100, they shout ONE HUNDRED and wins the game.

    You always have the best games. I love the candy bar game. We will have to try it sometime when we are all together. Your family is so encouraging to me. You always try to have fun together as a family. I am sure a lot of the reason is because you are such a great mom.
    Many blessings,
