For this particular game night, I made a post on our wall of ideas for Unplugged Games. You can use the Unplugged Games for any number of situations: an after school snack, a quiet sit-down with a friend, or just to help keep your kids quiet during a game. Here are a few examples: A phone game where you “get the phone to ring” when someone answers the phone; a matching game in which two people are hidden and the first person to find the other must call them before the other gets to the hidden person; or a treasure hunt in which a child finds a hidden object. As long as there is room for one more person to join in, you will have a great time with this game.
When you do bring the phone in, make it a point to hide it as well. This way, they don’t have to charge their cell phone and possibly get a phone call while they are trying to play Unplugged Games. You can even have the kids record themselves and play the game as a group. It’s a great way to have fun together and teach your child a few fun skills, all at the same time!
