CHARADES WITH 6-YEAR-OLDS: MOVE OVER GITMO

This past Friday night was game night.

The kids chose Cranium again, their new favorite obsession. And, honestly, if you haven't ever played it, you must. It's better with grown-ups, though, and is actually a grown-up game, as it's a cooky combination of Pictionary / Scrabble / Charades / Karaoke / Trivial Pursuit / and some really bad drinking game that I only have a vague memory of from college, or was that high school? No, Mom reads the blog. Let's stick with college.

Anyway...

There is a children's version called New Cadoo. But we haven't picked that one up yet. So, in the meantime, I have to filter through the cards when it's their turn to choose, so that they don't spend 20 minutes trying to hum Aerosmith's "Walk This Way" to the tune of Mary Had A Little Lamb before I realize they have no freaking clue what the song is!

But it all turned out fine. And we all had a great time. Here's just a sampling of it. Video #1 is Saia trying to make us guess what celebrity she is without telling us his name. Personally, I had no idea she knew ANY celebrities.


Video #2 is Chago performing charades. Our only clue was that it was a "thing." And although the video claims it only took 3 minutes and change, I'd swear it was more like 45!!!!!
