I am so grateful for all of you. What an amazing community here on The Idea Room. Thank you Amy, for all you do for all of us!
Many of us will be with family and friends this week. Visiting and eating and enjoying each others company. But waiting for the turkey to be carved can leave us wondering what do to and how to entertain the kids. Here is a great game for you and your family to play around your Thanksgiving table. Perfect for adults and kids alike.
Hand Tap-Double Tap is the name of the game and all you need are your own two hands.
How to Play: As you sit around the table, have each person cross hands with the person on each side of them, so that everyone in the circle has one hand from each neighbor in between their own hands.
Choose one person to start and decide which direction you want the game to go, to the right or to the left. Remember, play is based on hand position, not the position of the person.
Have the person start by tapping the table. The taps go on from hand to hand, as players watch and make sure to only lift their hand on the correct turn. If a person single taps, play continues onto the next hand. If a person double taps, the play reverses direction.
If a player’s hand moves when it is not their turn, or if they forget to tap for longer than two seconds, that player’s hand is out. The game continues until a winner remains.
This game is so much fun, and a much bigger challenge than it sounds. It gets pretty funny to watch everyone try and remember when it is their turn to tap, when their hands are in front of someone else. This game is also really fun to play on the floor, laying on your stomach in a circle. Or even on your knees.
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday with your family and friends.
