You won’t believe how far the marshmallow will fly by flicking the shovel back and trying to get it into the pail. I loved this idea when I saw it on Pinterest —> here

Jousting on top of Milk Crates

Elizabeth and Anne were Momee vs Momee in this hysterical and fun game that teens and adults will love to play.

What you need is: 2 broom stick handles, 4 paper towel rolls, duct tape


Using broom stick handles and duct tape and paper towel rolls you can create this fun game. Duct tape the paper towel rolls to the end of each broomstick handle to create jousting sticks that you and your opponent can use to knock each other off of the milk crates.

End result: a lot of fun and smiles
