Worst Kids’ Games Ever

In the same spirit as my Worst Bedtime Stories, I decided to recommend some fun games for Child Harbat this weekend.  One suggestion, offered to CH and her friend while trying to get them away from thousands of dollars of merchandise at a pottery show, was…let’s say not met with as much excitement as I’d hoped:

Me:  Hey girls, wanna play a really really REALLY fun game?

Girls:  Yaaay!

Me:  It’s called Let’s Stand Quietly in Place and Wait for the Adults!

Girls:  [long silence]  That sounds like a horrible game.

Me:  Yaaay!

Later that day my second game suggestion, Everyone Walk in an Orderly Line and Keep Up, was completely ignored.  Kids these days!

  1. Here’s one of my favorites, from when I was sick and was supposed to have lots of fluids:
    If you drink ALL this water (a gallon throughout the day) you get a SPECIAL treat!
    [assaults kidneys by drinking all the water]
    What’s my special treat? Huh? What is it? Whatisitwhatisitwhatisit?!?!?!?!

    Your treat is now you get to say you drank all that water!
