With the cooler weather rolling in and more opportunities to stay indoors, hosting a Family Game Night is an easy and fun way to entertain everyone. Now that I am pregnant, I look for activities that don’t take a lot of energy out of me. I am waiting for my energy to come back… any day now.
Regardless if I am tired, I still need to find ways to keep my children entertained. Although Reese is young, she is starting to learn how to play games with our family. Granted, she does get a bit upset when she loses but it’s a good learning experience for her.
When I was a Summer Camp Director, finding games that kept kids entertained was challenging. However, I do remember them always loving to play Hedbanz™. Back then, they didn’t have the electronic version that we have today.
Hedbanz™ Electronic is so much fun to play with the family! It is recommended for ages 7+. That being said, we had to modify the rules to play with my preschooler. There was a lot of helping her get to the answer, but that’s okay because we all have to start somewhere. She loves playing with toys and games that aren’t necessary in her age range.
Hedbanz™ Electronic is the fast-paced, team-based electronic version of the quick-question game of “What Am I?”
How to play Hedbanz at your Family Game Night
Players pick a partner, put on a headband and grab a card. Players wear a “picture card” in their headband, and then quickly ask questions to figure out what they are. For example: “Am I food?” “Am I a vegetable?” “Am I ketchup?”
The game unit’s “Electronic Host” determines which game mode they’ll play in that round: Ask It, Do It, or Describe It. The Host also directs the game, tracks time and keeps score.
It’s that easy and that fun! We had a great time playing with Reese and helping her guess the answers. We do follow the rules when we have older kids come over or my stepson is home. Anything that puts a smile on my daughter’s face is a winner to me!
