Saturday with Boo and Mister-- The Games Book

Okay so technically, we didn't read this book.

And Boo and Mister didn't even look at it.

BUT-- how cool is the idea? A book of instructions for a whole slew of games!! Isn't that awesome?

Totally on my wishlist now! Because really, it's the kind of thing you want to own to consult.

Actually part of the reason I got it from the library was the looming specter of Boo's birthday party-- but we're going to Chuck E. Cheese instead. Less planning, more noise. I'm still not sure how excited I am. (But hey, they have skeeball. I love skeeball.)

What was I saying?

Oh yeah, games. Hop scotch, leapfrog, Chinese jumprope! I was starting to think I was the only one that remembered Chinese jumprope! Cat's cradle, London Bridge....

It's quite the list. Seriously cool.

Yeah, I'm a nerd. It's alright.


  1. I need some of those hand clap rhymes. Are those in there?
    Maybe I need this book. I can't remember half the games we use to play.

  2. There are circle and singing games... not sure if that helps.

    If you follow the amazon link you can "look inside" and view the whole table of contents!
