We got the kids a Wii for Christmas, and it has provided them hours and hours of entertainment and distraction from homework and chores.
The children have come up with a new game of their own! This seems to be their favorite game, and if I had known earlier how well they played this game and how much they enjoy this game, we might not have bothered with the Wii.
What game is this you ask? I will tell you that it requires much skill, a steady hand and an eye for balancing things.
It is the ever popular game called The Stacking Game!
I'm sure you are just dying to know how to play this game aren't you?
Well, here's how to play!!!
The object of the game is to see how much garbage can be stacked in the garbage can and/or how many dirty dishes can be stacked in the sink before someone else takes out the garbage and/or loads the dishwasher!!
Hours and hours of fun for all!!!
I have to admit that at times it can be quite suspenseful, watching the garbage bag stretch almost to the point of breaking, and seeing the precariously placed glass on top of the stack of tupperware, wondering what the last item placed on the pile will be to finally make it topple.......
I am amazed at how good the offspring are at playing this particular game!
There's got to be some sort of career out there where they can use this amazing skill. Someday I hope it will make them all rich and/or famous!
