The Classics – Scrabble

Let’s start by saying Scrabble is an amazing game. By far the best word game I’ve ever played. I may be baised, it’s also very sentimental, I have a lot of great memories of my grandparents playing scrabble. In fact they played everyday and were quite good at it too. What an adorable relationship activity…

Gimp Bracelets – A Throwback to the 90s

It’s summer and no better way to celebrate than by making bracelets. Last year I did a post on making friendship bracelets. This time I thought I would do a bit of a 90s throwback and switch it up with some plastic lace. I found a pack at Dollarama for $2 and felt it was…

Unlock! Escape Adventures – Squeek & Sausage

I love escape rooms, but with the pandemic in our lives it doesn’t seem like I’ll be going back to one anytime soon. Luckily there’s a few different escape room game options to play at home. The first one I am trying is from the Unlock! series. They are pretty impressive and they seem to…

Medium

After the success I had playing The Mind, I was all over the idea of Medium, just to get that same spooky mind reading sort of feeling. I haven’t played this a lot, from my experience its a hit or a complete miss. It seems to really depend on who you are playing with. It…

My First Attempt at Paper Quilling

The internet is full of all sorts of craft ideas I have never seen before. I found a bunch of really amazing paper quilling projects that inspired me to try making one of my own. After doing some research, the greatest thing about paper quilling is the cost. It’s a great looking craft that’s really…

Slapagories

I have a very soft spot for quick games and with good reason, they are easy to get people interested, the set up is fast and its takes nothing to explain the rules to get started. Scattegories is a great classic, but sometimes you want something a bit lighter, faster and with a tiny bit…

Nautilion

Nautilion is a beautiful game that can be played solo or as a cooperative game for two players. It’s ages 10 and up and takes about 30 minutes to play.  This is the first solo game I’ve wrote about and it’s a great one to start with. Before you even play the game, take in…

Cricut Engraver – Bracelet

I saw this at Michaels and couldn’t resist. There’s a lot of possibilities for this so I had to try it out. I bought the engraving tip, and a few types of things to engrave, in this post I will talk about making a bracelet. Listed below are the tools I used. ImpressArt® Bracelet Bending…

Nintendo Switch – Ring Fit

Now that the Corona virus is keeping us all at home and my gym is closed, I thought I would post about the games I use to keep me moving. I will start this post by saying I’m not much into video games so don’t expect a lot from this category. To start this category…

Fun Employed

Another game that offers a little bit of creative thinking, in this game you are going to build a resume and get a job.  Seems pretty relatable.  This can be played with 3 or more players and is for 13 years and up. This game falls into a category with Cards Against Humanity or Superfight. …
