When the TV is switched off...

.....creativity flows.

Last week fed up with too much TV I banned it completely and look what H came up with! 

A board game of his own. It's a simple one but we had a ball playing it. The 'tasks' he set up ranged from funny to outright weird. There was 'sing a song', 'take three sips of water', 'skip 5 times', 'touch the quilt', 'hug your partner'.

His was an amateur's job, but this is a great way to include physical activity in a board game. So if your dice lands on a particular number you might be required to skip a specific number of times or jump or somersault, do handstands, pushups .. whatever. 

Before I get carried away any more I have to add - there's a catch - you need to be ready to do all of it too.

So come along make your own board game.
