Games Made Up By My Children

Z turns nine this year, and she is already planning for her big "horse party."  Part of this includes making up new games.  On the way to school today she and A came up with a game called "Pick Up the Poop."

A: First you get some tootsie rolls --

Z: Then you unwrap them --

A: They have to be really big tootsie rolls!

Z: And you hide them in the grass.

A: And then everyone goes out to find them in the grass!

Z: And whoever gets the most wins!

A: What do they win?

Z: They don't win a prize, they win the game.

Because, you see, if you found all the poop, that's prize enough.  Be sure to watch this space.  If this makes it to the birthday party next month I'll be sure to include pictures.

  1. Playing that game in my yard could be deadly. All the neighborhood cats like to cut through to get to the nature preserve behind my house, and they like to stop and do you-know-what on their way through. I could see it now: the kids find 20 Tootsie Rolls, but I only put out 15.
