Lockdown fun for the whole family

This is the first post and has nothing to do with Salesforce. Here is a game I invented a couple of weeks ago that actually worked for about an hour.

Requirements

  1. Some bored children (probably won’t work over the age of 5, YMMV).
  2. Some parents in need of a drink.
  3. One green coloured drink or drink in a green container (henceforth this shall be known as the “Go drink”).
  4. One red coloured drink or drink in a red container (henceforth this shall be known as the “Stop drink”).
  5. Some way of fashioning a course or circuit in your house or garden (the outside of a dining table for instance can become the race track).

Instructions

  1. Inform the bored children of the route of the course laid out.
  2. Determine parent to drink the green drink. Inform the children that this means they need to start running.
  3. Determine parent to drink the red drink. Inform the children that this means they need to stop running.
  4. Start enjoying your evening.
  5. This has a side benefit of tiring the children, making bedtime a breeze.

Try it out, let me know in the comments how it goes…
