I hope you and your family are safe and sound in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. We were very fortunate not to bear the worst of it in the DC area, and I’m thinking dry thoughts for friends in areas harder hit.
At our house, Sandy meant an epic foosball tournament. In between rounds (or for me, losses), I saw a wonderful trend emerging in my Twitter feed… seems when the lights go out, people get a lot more resourceful – and playful!
@CuteMonsterDad: No power. Yet we are playing Zingo Sight Words via flashlight. @ThinkFun #sandy #frankenstorm @trydefyinggrav: #ABA therapy cancelled. Bringing out the @ThinkFun games to get us through #HurricaneSandy. Going with Zingo. #autism #parenting
For one dad in NY, 20+ rounds of Zingo! just about did him in!
And finally, a silver lining to all that time spent playing… a dad reports a MAJOR victory!
- @double21d: The streak is over!!! I finally beat my son at Zingo…
Do you play games when the lights go out? Which are your family’s favorites?!
