Game : Discover Your Family Game
Play a fun game of “Guess Who?”. Get the family around the kitchen table (The more family members the better, invite grandparent over) with a stack of index cards, dice, 1 minute timer and pens. Decide who gets to be the “Judge” first by rolling the dice, highest wins, then the game play will go clockwise from the highest roller. Everyone else gets an index card and a pen, they will have one minute to write down something unique about themselves. Something like: I love candy, I don’t eat broccoli, my favorite color is purple, I sing in the shower, I love Christmas. Once the time is up pass the cards to someone who is not the “Judge” and read them out load. Once all the cards have been read the “Judge” has one minute to guess who went with each card. If the judge is right they get one point per right answer. Now it’s the next “Judges” turn, and you give out new cards and write down something different. First to 20 points wins. You’ll find out how unique family really is.

Craft : Discovery Glitter Bottles
Create a unique glitter bottle that will keep your kids busy for hours as the glitter rises up, instead of falling down.
Supplies: Plastic Bottle with label removed (straight up and down, smooth bottles with no ridges are best), Baby oil, Silver/Gold glitter, purple & blue liquid food coloring, water and super glue.
Fill water bottle half way with baby oil. Pour glitter into bottle about a tablespoon, add more if you’d like. Mix together water and food coloring in a measuring cup, until you achieve the color you like, I like it darker, you may like it lighter. Add colored water to bottle, leaving ¾ mouth of the bottle empty. You need a little air in the bottle in order for the mixture to move around. Super glue the cap on the bottle. Then give it a good
shake, then enjoy the unique sparkle show inside the bottle.
