A refreshing new game that tests a family's coordination and teamwork - all inside a big red whistle!
A. Easy. Many games include eating dinner and drinking milk, such as The Last Bite, MilkMan Race and Counting Moo. We've also discovered that kids are so focused on the game that they just eat their meal and forget to complain about the peas. "Thanks for introducing us to a way to get Hanna to eat her dinners!" said Kerry, a Mom from Massachusetts.
A. Absolutely. Many games like Get To Know Ya, Situation Challenge and especiallyPass The Pepper encourage conversation. Plus, a FamilyTimeFun game is a great way to open everyone up at the table and put them in a good mood at the start of dinner. As one Mom said great conversation starters.
A. You'll discover that playing simple games during dinner is a fun and different way to enjoy a family meal. It's also a break from the routine. Several University Family Extension Programs (W.Virginia University, University of Nebraska, Iowa State University and others) recommend having fun at the dinner table and playing games to create a positive meal experience. Kids benefit most from family meals when it's a positive experience.
A. Sure. Pick up our 51 game set, pull out a few game cards and play them at night instead of watching TV. Keep a few cards in your car and play them while running errands or on the way to your in-laws. Play them at home on the weekend around the breakfast table. Or play them when you take your family out to a restuarant.
A. Your family should start with the Beginner Game. Then try Gather 'Round followed by the Original Game.
A. Both. While most of the 51 cards are primarily games, the games are a fun and easy way to begin family conversation. FamilyTimeFun Dinner Games & Activities add a little spice and fun to your average conversation starter.
A. Family Day - A Day to Eat Dinner with Your Children -- is celebrated on the 4th Monday of September every year. It is a growing national effort designed to promote the benefits that come from families dining together on a consistent basis. Family Day was launched in 2001 by The National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse (CASA) at Columbia University.CASA Research consistently shows that the more often children eat dinner with their families, the less likely they are to smoke, drink or use illegal drugs. Family Day reminds busy families of the invaluable roll that parental involvement plays in steering children and teens away from cigarettes, drugs and alcohol. Every year more companies, organizations and families join together to support Family Day. For more information: www.CASAFamilyDay.org.
A.Many of the Racers Ready Challenges involve getting families up and moving in a fun and active way. Two of our Challenge categories are Races and Contests. Several games involve moving across a room by running, crawling etc.
A. Yes. You can change some games slightly so that they are easier or more challenging depending on the ages of your children.
