I am hoping you can help me -- my sweet Caroline (2nd grade) school is having an auction. My assignment is to come up with a project that includes involving all the kiddos in her class that can be sold at the live auction. For the silent auction, we have to come up with a Family Fun Night basket. I was trying to come up with some game that would include the kiddos faces -- like Twister or something. It doesn't have to be related to the basket, though. I really need your cleverness! Can you help me?
Let us think about it and maybe some eavesdroppers can leave some ideas too. The first thing that comes to my mind is the game Guess Who? It is a mystery Guessing Game where you can make stickers of kids in the class and put them on there. It would be fun to add the Principal, the Media specialist and PE teacher.
You can find this game on Amazon and I have seen it at Target.
I have to give huge credit to this idea to my friend Laura in Nashville. She is the queen of taking games and making them personal for families.
the other idea would be to make a memory game.
Buy a memory game and print off the kids photos and modge podge them to the Memory Cards. Or even better give them each a piece of paper with a square the size of the piece drawn on it. Have them draw a picture. Then photo copy each one so you have two exact copies. Then modge podge each artwork on a piece. Giving them the size to draw the picture will be key and save you from having to shrink it down.
Buying one of these games would honestly be cheaper than making one from scratch.
You could also make an I spy game from walking around the school and taking photos.
