So like I stated on my last post .. elf on the shelf came through with some cool “game controllers” for the kids .. so they can replicate Jumanji .. and get sucked into the game. They also left them pet snakes. Both “controllers” and snakes came from that toy bundle pack (www.Orientaltrading.com). When my husband came home from work .. JUMANJI NIGHT was in full affect.
Lights went off around the house.
Hooked my phone up to Bluetooth speaker and went to YouTube (played Jumanji background music .. 15 min long video.. followed by more Jumanji music in another 15 min video)
Gave the kids 2 flashlights , their controllers, their snakes
Transformed into a screaming maniac (even though I tend to be that character from time to time in real life)
Husband and I decided to hide around the house .. jumping out at the kids.. setting up traps (blanket turned into a net).. creating chaos and fun (we probably enjoyed it more than the kids)
Then hid a treasure and gave clues to find it
We made sure to play an hour before their bed time (so they would be exhausted haha)
Hands down .. BEST NIGHT.. so many laughs.. wore the kids out.. and the only thing really needed was IMAGINATION.
