Monday Mixup: Game Day

There is a monkey they sell at Wal-Mart that runs around and kids have to toss rings over its tail. It’s pretty cute and his name is Cheeky! Mostly because his butt cheeks are right there. Haha. In certain packages comes the game Barrel of Monkeys. My husband decided that we would try it out, since neither of us have played before.


It was actually pretty fun! We played by these rules:
Each player picks up a monkey and attempts to link as many as possible. The chain is then put into the barrel and it is next player’s turn. If one or more monkeys fall off you lose the entire chain and it is the next player’s turn. We used a slight variation to the original rules found in the barrel.


It was a pretty fun time! Let me tell ya…it was pretty challenging too! We both had fairly long chains at our highest number but usually we would pick up one or two and get a bit too cocky. Then they would all fall off! I would only recommend this game for you kids if they can use their gross motor skills pretty well.

All in all it was a nice relaxing time with the hubby while our baby girl was fast asleep.

Have any of you played this before? How was your experience? I would love to hear from you!

With that, I leave you with a gif of my hubby making a chain of monkeys!


Until next time…

About Three Handed Mommy

Mother of one, wife to one. Hoping for more children in the future but so far I'm a three handed mommy. One hand is in school, another in loving my family, the last is on here (and all that comes with it). I love origami and I doodle once in a blue moon. Maybe I will share some drawings, both old and new. I have a slight obsession with Hatake Kakashi, Batman, rubber duckies, pandas, and Pokemon. Then again, my obsession may prove to be more than slight on more than one occassion...don't judge. :P Since this is new and all to me, please bear with me while I find my rhythm and posting habits. Hope you enjoy what I put up here! Feel free to pin anything unless stated otherwise in a post. :)
