Friday Family Fun

Welcome to our Friday Family Fun series! 

I believe one of God's greatest gifts is the relationships of those He places closest to us: our family. That is one treasure that is always worth investing in! One of the ways we enjoy spending time together is exploring different games and projects to do together as a family in the evenings. Since some of them have turned out to be quite fun we thought we would start sharing a few of our recent ideas with ya'll! 

*Please excuse the somewhat poor quality of these pictures. 
I wasn't going to blog this, but it ended up being such fun 
that I thought I'd pass along the idea. 

Stephen's birthday was last week and since he requested Italian food for supper we decided to play a birthday game with a bit of Italian flavor. Literally. What you will need is a bowl of cooked spaghetti noodles and some dark paper. Cook the spaghetti as instructed on the box then drain and put some ice on the noodles to keep them from getting too sticky. 

Give each player or team a piece of paper and set the timer for 3 minutes. The goal is to create a picture of whatever they want using the noodles. Some of the more artistic members of our family declared that 3 minutes was not enough time to sufficiently add enough detail to the picture so feel free to add a couple of extra minutes if you want.

Say "GO!" and let the creativity and noodles start to fly!

Just so you know, we don't make a habit of playing with our food... this was an exception to that rule for the sake of making memories together.

Can you tell that this is Ryan and Ruth's picture?!

This picture got the most laughs by far! It was affectionately dubbed "The Yodeling Cowboy".

You probably can tell which pictures were made by people on a team vs. single players. 

I hope you enjoy doing this as much as we did!

"Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good;
Blessed is the man who trusts in Him!"
Psalms 34:8

What fun! Some of those are really good for just three minutes.
