I started this blog with one daughter, kept it up with the other, to spend time together doing something we enjoyed.
However, things change and people evolve. My daughters are older, busier, and not as interested in writing.
From now on this blog will be mostly mom with occasional contributions from my daughters and maybe even my husband.
Nothing else will change. We'll still focus on sharing fun places to go, fun things to do, and more, and we would  still love to hear your views too

Funtivity Friday - Walking Around Games

We spend a lot of time walking around the City and to pass the time we make up games to play when we are working around. Some of these games can also be played when you are riding in a car or bus. Some of them can be played anywhere.

1) Categories- Pick a category. Takes turns naming things that fit the category.

2) License Plates - Take the letters on a license plate and make up a phrase using those letters.

3) Find A - Take turns telling each other what to do.

4) Guess What Song is On My Mind - Taking turns thinking of a song. The others ask questions to try to guess what the song is.

5) Alphabet Game. Find a word on a sign or billboard or sign or something that starts with A then B and so on. You can skip really hard letters if you need to.

6) Alphabet Game variation. Find a word on a sign or billboard or something that ends with A then B and so on. You can skip really hard letters if you need to.

7) Where Am I. Think of a place. The others ask questions and try to guess what the place is.

8) Make Up a Song -  Each person is turn is given a word and has to make up a song using that word.

9) Words in words - Using the letters you find on a sign or billboard or something, make up another word using those letters. You do not have to use all the letters on the sign or billboard or whatever in your word.

10) What am I saying- Talk in a funny way. Without opening your mouth all the way, without closing your mouth, or whatever. The others have to figure out what you are saying.

What do you like to do when you are walking around, riding in a car or waiting around? We will bring you more of our walking around games in future Funtivity Fridays.


Tune in tomorrow for a Saturday Special.
