A while ago I came across Life in the Green House's 'Date Night' Jar
. The idea was to have a jar filled with popsicle stick, each containing a different idea for a date night activity. Immediately I had an idea for how this could become a fun kids craft and a great family activity.
Charades is a fun family game, that generally produces less arguments than your average board game. One of the main problems is preparing the movie suggestions in the first place. You need to find a piece of paper and pens, everyone has to try and think of movies, and in the end 3 people have written down the same film.
With popsicle stick charades you can skip this step and get straight into playing.

: 5-10s, Over 10s
Can you think of any other ways you could adapt the 'Date Night' Jar
for your family? Here are a few more options:
Let us know how your charades jar goes.
