Play the "Know it All" Game with Mom!
Remember that old saying that Mom has “eyes in the back of her head”? Those words were around in Grandma’s day and they still apply today—for good reason! Somehow, when it comes to knowing kids as they really, truly are, there’s nothing like the all-seeing eyes of Mom.
This year on Mother’s Day, play a hilarious party game to challenge your child: does he know Mom as well as you know him? This game is based on that classic TV show, “The Newlywed Game,” only this time, it involves pairs of moms and kids. In addition to providing lots of old-fashioned, low-tech family fun, it also offers your child a chance to practice elementary school speaking and listening standards. Here’s how to get started:
What You Need:
- At least 2-3 moms with one kid each
- One emcee (perhaps Dad can play the role of Bob Eubanks?), and a small audience
- Pen and paper for keeping score (or you can use a whiteboard if it’s handy)
- Question list (you can download the starter set provided below)
