Welcome back for our third installment of our Family Game Night posts. This week we had a trivia themed game night featuring a fun new trivia book we got called “Good Job Brain!” by Ulysses Press. We had a lot of fun exploring the games and played three of them for our family game night. We make a fun snack of apples and peanut butter to go along with our game night.
A Very Average Human Body By the Numbers:
The first game we played was all about the human body and science. There were eight fun trivia questions and each one focused on how many of something we have in the human body. We just read the questions and each logged our answers. We scored one point for each one we got right and whoever had the most points at the end won! We really were surprised at some of the answers and we learned a lot about our bodies that we didn’t know. So it quickly turned into a fun educational opportunity as well.
Lifetime Movie or Not Lifetime Movie?:
The second game we played featured a list of fun Movie titles. Our job was to determine if the title was a real movie that had been aired on the Lifetime channel or if it was a made up title. We had a lot of fun with this one and were shocked at some of the titles that were real. This one was full of laughs. We even spent some time coming up with ways they could make the fake ones into real movies. It was a great way to spark their imaginations.
TV Rebus Time!:
The last game we played was TV Rebus. This was our favorite game of the three. Rebus are those little puzzles were they use works and images to create a puzzle Like the one in the photo above for example with the house above a line and the prairie under the line is Little House on the Prairie. Since we were playing with the entire family I wrote these out on pieces of paper so everyone could see them easily. Everyone recorded their answers and got 1 point if the were correct. The person with the most points won! It was a lot of fun. However some of the movies were older and our kiddos did not know them. We also came up with a few of our own for more modern things the kids would know. It was their favorite though.
Since I have started Nutrisystem I decided we needed a healthy snack for game night. I am not up to making anything unhealthy even if it’s just for the kids. So I cut up some apples and shaped the slices into the shape of a question mark. Then used a cup of peanut butter as the dot. The kids thought this was the cutest thing ever and loved the apples and peanut butter. I had to refill the tray half way through the games. It was a great healthy option.
You can find Good Job Brain on the Ulysses Press Website!
The book has tons of games, trivia, puzzles and more for you to enjoy as a family for game night or on your own.
