Reverse Charades Review!

Greetings neighbors!

Here is another last minute idea for a gift, though I have to tell you, an even better idea is have this game for your New Years Eve party or get together.  Reverse Charades, talk about a great ice breaker!  My family played this, and at first it started out a bit stiff because everyone was embarrassed, but after a round or two, it got really silly!  We just played as a family.

Here is how Reverse Charades normally works.  First you divide everyone up into two teams.  Decide which team goes first.  Team 1 chooses one person to guess, and the others all stand up to act out the words.  With this game there is no preparation ahead of time and no talking or mouthing words or information is allowed.  Team 2 chooses one player to pull the word cards out of the box and show them to team one, not to the person guessing.  Flip the timer and begin!  The person holding the cards pulls one out and shows it to team one, who start acting out the word/s.  This can actually get pretty funny, because everyone starts doing their own thing.  As soon as the person guesses right they go on to the next card.  You have one minute, using the timer, to complete as many word/s as possible.  The group acting out the word/s can pass on a card, but they are only allowed one pass.  After team one is done, they earn one point for each word they got correct.  Team two then takes a turn.  You can set a number of rounds ahead of time, and the one with the most points at the end, wins!

As a family we played Reverse Charades a little different.  We had one card turner, 1-2 people guessing, and the rest acted out the word/s.  Some of them are hysterical!  Sometimes you can act out the word itself, like squat, amd other times it is easier to break it down, like wheel chair, or roller skating.  I think one of our funniest was fire hydrant, unfortunately, my daughter thought she was recording it, and didn't.  And it is just one of those moments you can't relive.  I do have a couple of videos attached for you to watch.

As I said earlier, this would make a great New Years Eve game whether you get together with a group, or if it is just your family.  I definitely recommend this game, and I think it became a family favorite overnight.  We have some friends coming to visit, and I have a feeling we will be pulling out Reverse Charades again!

Reverse Charades is one of the games we discovered at ChiTAG.  We certainly enjoyed our time there, and found many new fun games and toys!  Reverse Charades can be purchased online, or use their store locator to find a store near you that carries Reverse Charades. (approx. 24.99).

So if you are looking for a fun new game, be sure to try Reverse Charades.  Try following them on Twitter and "Like" them on Facebook.

Baby First TV 'I Can Sign" First Words

Hey Neighbors! Here is a really neat gift idea for someone with a young child.  Here we have I Can Sign (First Words) from Baby First  TV.  Now, I am just going to share right here that we have friends who have taught two of their children to sign at a very young age.  And it works!  Their children could sign before they could talk. The Dvd will teach your child many useful words that will be used in day to day life.  Words like: eat, water, milk, cookie, ear, feet hands, kiss, sleep, book, mother, father, and many other words.  Each word is taught in a short video clip where they will see pictures of the word/item and people signing.  There is also a little character at the bottom corner of the video signing along.  The Dvd can be done on English or Spanish.  Also included on the Dvd are printable coloring pages that you can print off by inserting the Dvd into your computer.  Inside the cover of the Dvd case is a little booklet that covers some of the words you and your child

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.
