CRAZY LEGSsmal  Oddly Obvioussmall

Looking for some fun for your children this Summer when they claim they are bored? Or maybe you are looking for family fun away from screen time? These games from Endless Games are also great for Family Game nights! Endless Games is always on the cutting edge of games that are fun for the whole family! For ages 3 to 103, Endless Games offers card, dice, party, word, strategy, trivia, survey and pop culture games for everyone! Games like Oddly Obvious, the wild new party game where all the answers are right in front of you. One player reads clues while the other players race to spot the correct answers on a game card. The trick, the answers are each in different fonts and colors, written up, down, and even upside down. Shout out the most correct answers to win. It’s not as easy as you think! And, CRAZY LEGS, is a brand new game that gets players up and moving. Each space on the game board represents a new physical challenge for children and families to jump, twist, shake and exercise their way to victory! Other great travel games and board games at www.endlessgames.com. Games starting at $16.99.

I received samples of both of these games and our family enjoyed both of them! Oddly Obvious is great for Tweens and even Teens! Guaranteed laughing and fun to be had by the entire family! I really liked CRAZY LEGS because players can get up and move. My son is really into video games and not as much into sports so I really think that this one is a great one for family game night.

RoosterFin also has some great game choices! Board Games for kids are the building blocks to fun. Monkeys Up™ is a game that will have you going bananas! Players compete to get the best score by flipping, switching, and stealing monkeys. Each monkey has a value hidden under its feet that is only revealed when flipped. Victory will come to the player who switches, steals, and flips the best. You will find yourself laughing head over heels until all of your monkeys are up! $19.99. And, PongCano™, The Game of Sacrifice! This fast-paced skill game will keep players erupting with laughter! The task is simple—bounce the ball into the PongCano™ volcano. Players must control their nerves and hold their laughter until the ball lands safely in the bottom of the PongCano™ volcano! Ages 8+ $15.99;http://www.roosterfin.com/Games.php.

We received both of these games and our family really liked PongCano! It’s simply a lot of fun! We couldn’t stop laughing the first time we played it. 

Butterfly Garden Pkgsmall

Looking for a fun activity for the family?  We haven’t tried this one yet because I am planning to use this for a homeschool activity this coming up school year and I do think it would be a great item for back-to-school! Insect Lore- Mail order Caterpillars sound like so much fun! 
Your kids will be entertained watching the metamorphosis process of caterpillars and you can bring a little of the outdoors inside! The super hands-on and sensory rich Insect Lore’s Live Butterfly Kit arrives with four to five caterpillars and a specialty diet in a plastic, see-through jar. The caterpillars eventually bloom into beautiful Painted Lady butterflies, and kids can watch the entire process happen. Once the caterpillars turn into chrysalis they can be transferred to their mesh see-through, reusable, pop-up mesh habitat butterfly garden. It’s the perfect DIY kit at home. Watch them grow, then let them go. Also, check out Insect Lore’s Live Ladybug Land! They’re cute, colorful and friendly and so helpful in the garden. Children will love to watch their very own ladybug larvae explore the paths and mountains of the Live Ladybug Land. The larvae will grow and molt several times, pupate and then emerge as adult ladybugs. Kits retail for $19.99; www.insectlore.com.
