children's book charades

Check out the Christmas present we got from my awesome sister Bonnie.  She made it for us.  It's so great!  Here you can see how cool it looks on the outside... but you have NO IDEA how cool it is on the inside...

It's children's books charades!  It's amazing!  We've been having so much fun with it.  Please just imagine how wonderful and hilarious it is to watch 7 year old Snoopy act like Trixie from Knuffle Bunny: A Cautionary Tale , 5 year old Bibs act like King Bidgood from King Bidgood's in the Bathtub or (my personal favorite) 2 year old Kitten act like Abiyoyo chomping up sheep and cows right out of the field (our version of the game allowed sounds and book quotes).  SO HILARIOUS!  This game has been such a delight!  You should try to play a version of it at your house... There are lots of ways you could play.  I mean you could just fill a brown paper bag with favorite books and then have everyone secretly pick one out to act out... whoever guesses right gets to go next.  Personally I love my popsicle stick version.  There are a few titles in there that are a little too hard for the kids.  Makes me wish I could get a room full of my adult friends who are as obsessed with children's literature as I am.  That would be a hoot!

Happy gaming!
