A quick game for the summer season

The summer holidays gives us an opportunity to unwind with friends and relatives. Try working in some of these games in to your home to lighten the mood and bring back a bit of fun! This is one of our favourites!

1. Guess the character: Nothing like a bit of guess work! Get everyone in the room to have a sticker put on their head with the name of someone else in the room, they then need to ask questions to figure out who they are. The person with the least questions and the correct answer wins!

Board Games can be a great alternative and get everyone in the family involved.

2. Board Games: Nothing beats some of the classic games that may have been around even when you were a kid. Bring out the old Monopoly Board, the Guess Who set or even a pack of Uno cards and use these as a great way to reminisce and teach your kids a few tricks.

3. Kitchen Games: Sometimes a great way to keep kids active is to get them in the kitchen and make cooking in to a fun activity that they can be involved in. When kids are given the opportunity to partake in everyday activities like cooking it teaches them some great skills and makes them feel like an adult. For fun, try this Chocolate Chip recipe out and see how they taste.

Step 1:  Preheat oven to 160°C. Line 2 baking trays with non-stick paper. Beat 150g softened butter, 1/2 cup caster sugar, 1/2 cup brown sugar and 1 tsp vanilla extract for 1-2 minutes or until smooth and well combined. Beat in 1 egg.

Step 2: Stir in 1 3/4 cups plain flour in two batches. Stir in 1/2 cup dark choc bits and 1/2 cup milk choc bits until evenly distributed. Spoon tablespoonfuls of the mixture into balls and place on the lined trays. Press down slightly.

Step 3: Bake for 15-18 minutes or until light golden and cooked. Transfer to a wire rack to cool. Store in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
