Cousin Game Night

I read something about planning Cousin Camp - and doing fun things together once a year with cousins and suggested to Carrie that we do something like that but smaller scale. Carrie graciously agreed to plan this fun game night for us to create our own fun cousin memories!

We had Skee Ball:
Mini Croquet:

Soccer:

Bean Bag Toss (called Corn Hole in Iowa!):

We also played basketball (how many baskets can you make in 30 seconds?) and had popcorn! We pooled our resources and pulled out little prizes to make a prize store - they earned tickets playing the games and then got to pick out prizes at the end! What fun!!! Thank you, Carrie, for such a fun game night!

How fun! I might have to try this idea "at home" when I return over the 4th of July to visit my parents and siblings. I have lots of nephews that my kids adore and don't get to see often enough!

My you were far from home? How did the kids like Iowa? Quite a change from the southeast!

Blessings,
Valerie

That is precious. Wish I'd have thought of doing something similar when my kiddos were younger.

This looks like fun. And what a sweet memory for your kids.

We're planning a family reunion in Aug and I'll have to keep some of these ideas in mind.
