Today I’m blogging from the patio of a condo overlooking the beautiful beach and ocean in Destin, Florida. As a family we’ve been coming to the same place for more than 20 years. Eating at the same places and enjoying some of our favorite same activities. But this year we did something we’ve never done before. We did that crazy awesome saran wrap game you’ve probably seen floating all over Facebook. You guys! This is the best game ever. So much fun. I’m posting a snippet from our game last night. It got pretty competitive and I’d never throw my family under the bus and say they cheated every time
my sister was supposed to pass the ball to me but my sister did that yes she did. Held it for a whopping two -three seconds when it was supposed to be passed. I figured out the strategy on the last lap around and grabbed it from her in time. In time for a snickers to fall out.
So what you do is get a bunch of stuff – candy bars, one dollar bills, mouth wash, gift card, gum, etc. and you wrap it up in saran wrap building a ball as you wrap. You can do all one very long piece of saran wrap if you want or you can intermittently start new sections of saran wrap. We did that. It makes it harder to have to “find the start” to a new wrap section. You can add packing tape to make it harder. Or make people wear gloves. We played where you had to roll doubles with two dice. But this wasn’t working out so well and it looked like a certain little girl who started the game out was going to get ALL the goods so we quickly changed it to just having to roll a six. This worked much better.
This would be fun at Christmas for sure!
