Life Size Clue - Kid Sized Imaginations!
Sometimes my kids amaze me. In this day and age of technology, I wonder what ever happened to good old fashioned imaginations - and a day like yesterday comes along and I remember how wonderful kids are.
My kids decided to play CLUE today. But instead of the boring old sit around the dining room table and play CLUE - they decided to play a life size game of CLUE. Yep, they set up different "rooms" using Barbie furniture and such and I helped them collect "weapons" (a flashlight instead of lead pipe, a candle instead of a candlestick, the rope really was a rope though...) and then they each picked a person to be. They proceeded to play the game by standing in the room they wanted to make the accusation in and putting the weapon and other person there. I was impressed. I couldn't join them because I was already pulling my hair out with the things I had to do, but I think one of the first things I want to do after dance classes end on Tuesday for the Christmas season is to play a life size game of CLUE with my kids!
