My husband has an amazing imagination. Our daughter is 5 and we are all about having fun. We both work full time and live on a budget and some of the ideas he comes up with to occupy our time are amazing.

Sunday Funday #5 Diffuse the Bomb

Diffuse the Bomb

I don’t have any pictures this week but it was a great Sunday Funday and only required a pad of post it notes, a pencil and a great imagination. We walked into the kitchen and my husband receives a “phone call”  it seems we are now the best detectives on the police force(there were 4 of us my mom, her friend, Alyssa and myself).  Our task was to find all of the clues which will lead us to the bomb so we can diffuse it before it blows. We have a half an hour to find all of the clues we can’t go outside or open any of the doors or windows or the bomb will blow.  The first clue is “once you pop you cant stop”.  Those of you that got the first clue good job, those of you that couldn’t it was in a Pringles can. The next clue was Brad Pitt and Angelina “Brangelena” what would Dora and Tinkerbell make? The answer doorbell. The clue was hidden in the cover of the doorbell. There were about 20 clues like this we followed all through the house. Some were simple like I’m not a uniformed cop. I’m _________ the answer was undercover or any openings? Nope, I’m fully booked (it was in the book case). Alyssa even got some of the simple clues. But there were also some difficult clues like (this one is a little more adult) Oral while standing in the shower……this one took a few extra hints and the answer was shower head hahaha. I had to unscrew the shower head and the clue was in a plastic bag rolled up inside of it. It turns out in the end we were not the best detectives on the force and the bomb would have blown us away but we did get the last clue about 2 minutes after the timer went off.

Sunday Funday #2 A Knights Tale

A Knights Tale

The second Sunday I came home after pulling the sword from the stone I was dubbed a knight from King Shaun and Queen Alyssa. I had to save the kingdom and search for all of the slime monsters that had taken over and kill them.

After I successfully killed all of the slime monsters I headed down to the basement to find my noble stead and have some jousting lessons.  My husband had a chair on a rolling dolly and this was my horse. I had a pool cue as my jouster. The trolls(paper towel rolls with troll pictures on them) were on bar stools and I had to joust them off while Shaun steered my horse for me.

When the trolls were all killed the castle was put into place and there was another troll attack. This time I had to use the catapult. While standing behind the castle walls I had to catapult tennis balls until I hit the trolls.

The catapult was a serving spoon. The best part was when it was all said and done we got to set up the whole story again for my mom to experience. I was now the queen, my daughter the princess and my husband the king and my mom got to pull the sword from the stone and fight the evil slim monster and save the kingdom!!
