I love this game. Teaches strategy, doesn't matter the age of the players (I can play against my 5 year-old and we are both still challenged), and is a relatively quick game (lasting about 2 minutes on average) Wooden Games, Gifts Ideas, Gobblet Gobbler, Families Games, Blue Orange, Games Blue, Orange Games, Fun Strategies, Kids Toys
2 cups of plain/all-purpose flour 1 cup salt 1 cup cold water 1 tbspn oil (vegetable oil is fine - baby oil smells lovely). Drop the ingredients and food coloring into a plastic bag and seal. Let the children knead them together inside the bag - then tip it out for modeling fun.
"Technology Tickets". Each Sunday give the kids 10 tickets. Each ticket = 30 minutes of t.v., game system, computer, etc. Tickets can be used consecutively, but when they are out they are out for the week.
