There’s only winners in this easy-to-play game.
A few years ago, Renee shared how her family plays a “favor game” for Chanukah. With the kids in my family having grown older, last year we took the game up a notch.
Instead of everyone choosing one person for whom they need to do a favor, in our game, everyone does a favor for everyone else. But we also made a game of it.
Each family member had to come up with a favor that they could do for each of the others. We then printed them all out and cut them up into little slips. We prepared a pile of chocolate coins – large and small ones.
Going around the table, each player had to draw a slip that had a favor on it. They then had to guess who was offering the favor – and for whom. If they got one person correct, they got a small chocolate coin. If they got both correct, they got a large one.
The favors can be obvious – half hour of driving practice will generally only be offered to one kid in the family (and probably only by dad) or they can be harder to guess. Still, they’re all fun to figure out!
Everyone comes out of this game a winner – you get a lot of favors, you give a lot of favors – and you eat chocolate!
