My 5-For-Friday post got me thinking about summer camp. For those of you who don’t know, I spend my July and August working at a summer camp for teenagers with diabetes, and I am in charge of programming–which means I better come up with a week full of games teenagers want to play.
A few years back,we had one indoor game night a week planned in case of inclement weather or just a night when we didn’t feel like running around in the dark. The hubby, a fan of Minute-To-Win-It, suggested we play similar games with our cabin tables…and a tradition was born. Now, each year, we have some version of Minute-To-Win-It games indoors or outside.
To help save my sanity when planning for this summer, I put together a list of more popular Minute-To-Win-It blog posts from around the web. Some of the games repeat from list to list, but each post has at least one (often, more) different game.
I’m actually thinking of trying a few of these in class randomly. Probably not with my 6ers, as they can’t handle fun things and settle down in a reasonable amount of time, but for the 8th graders, they’d be a really fun way to get up for a brain break of sorts to keep the blood flowing.
How do you use these games? Do you have a game day in your classroom or school? Do you have a game (or games!) that missed these lists? Please share in the comments!
