Remember this from two years ago? It was so successful I wanted to make it an annual tradition, but it just didn't happen last year. (Wonder what else we had going on?!)
I finally pulled it off last weekend, and we had a great time. Once again we started off with (homemade!) pizza for supper. Then we headed downstairs for the really fun part.
I'd set up the games earlier in the day and decided to stick with what had worked last time: bowling (using a kid's set we've had for years), timed basketball shooting, and Skee-ball (using a super-cool toy* pictured below that I got for free in the toy swap I coordinated a couple years ago).
This is one of those activities that took as long if not longer to prep than to implement, but it was definitely worth it, and they asked immediately when we could do it again. Success!
*Yikes--$160?! That's got to be a joke. Maybe I could try selling my used one for $50? HA!
