Over this past weekend, we were at our friend’s house, and the kids played “Truth of Dare”. Lots of giggling took place as the kids shared the silly things they were daring each other to do. For Example, Imagineer was dared to dunk her head in the dog’s water bowl. :0
On Sunday, Imagineer decided that she wanted to create a board game, and the theme is similar to the traditional truth or dare.
Dare or Do
The title of Imagineer’s creation is “Dare or Do”. We played it today and we actually all really enjoyed the set up of the game, the activities on the cards, and the excitement when we weren’t sure which color square we would land on next.
A Blue square means that you will need to draw from the Blue “Draw” pile. This is a good color to land on, because you just need to draw something, but there are no scores for how aesthetically pleasing the drawing turns out to be. Some examples of the drawing challenge include “Draw a flower blowing in the wind on a hill, Draw a stuffed animal in the room, Draw a Bear, Draw a cactus” etc…
A Green square indicates you will be drawing from the “Easy” pile. Phew! Some examples include “Run 2 laps around the house, Write a poem, Jump on a pogo stick, Do a yoga pose, Jump like a frog ten times” etc…
A Red square is, you guessed it, the “Hard” pile. A few examples include “Arm wrestle someone bigger than you, Do 15 push-ups, Climb highest thing, Lift a sibling 4 times, Eat a food you despise” etc…
When you are presented with your task, you have the choice to do it or dare someone else to do it. If you get dared by someone else, then when you roll, you get the choice to perform the task on the card you drew, or just skip it.
I was only going to include the front of the game, but Imagineer pointed out that the back is very important, because this is where the rules for the game are outlined.
Very cute activity for the little ones this summer. We loved the game so much, we went to our local Lakeshore Learning Center to have it laminated as well as the cards. Just looks much more official that way.
There you have it, another great activity for your kids this summer.
