Game Night, Noah style!

We had a family game night tonight. Noah was our master coordinator of events and he actually managed to incorporate a floppy flyer, bean bag, monster golf ball, croquet mallet, and a soccer ball into a series of fun games....
First of all, he told us that we were going to be on teams. The girls were on a team and the boys were on a team. The series of games were as follows:

1. Throwing a floppy flyer and/or beanbag to each other.

2. Kicking a soccer ball back and forth down the hallway.

3. Croquolf (I just came up with that name) One person uses a foam croquet mallet to hit a monster golf ball into a bowl turned sideways while the other person blocks them.

Noah picked Croquolf first while Katie and I alternated throwing the floppy flyer and beanbag. At Noah's signal we all rotated and had a turn at each activity.

It was fun because Noah REALLY enjoyed making up the games and being boss as he explained the rules and procedures. At the end he announced that the winners were "the grown-ups" and we announced that he was the best game maker of the night.

Tomorrow Katie gets a turn. What fun!
