Bean Boozled Jelly Belly dare to compare game, hillarious game for the whole family, you will be laughing and gagging at the same timeWe like to play games in our family. This week for family night we decided to play the Jelly Belly game Bean Boozled. We have not laughed so hard in a long time, or dry heaved so many times. Maybe we have a warped sense of humor but we thought this game was really fun.  We played 3 rounds, but the kids wanted to keep going round after round. This is great for a group party or family reunion!

You spin spinner and see what jelly bean design it lands on,  each design has the original Jelly bean flavor in it. BUT it also had “look alike” beans that are awful flavors such as barf, skunk spray, moldy cheese, grass clippings and rotten egg just to name a few. You spin the wheel then take a chance that you are going to get the good flavored bean.


Jelly Belly Bean Boozled Jelly Beans 3.5 oz with Spinner Wheel Game, 3rd Edition

  • Nasty Jelly Bellies
  • Special Jelly Belly® edition comes with 10 tasty beans and 10 look-alike beans of wild and weird flavors.
  • Is it licorice or skunk spray? Strawberry jam or centipede flavor?
  • Who’s brave enough to taste these beans?!
  • WARNING: Choking Hazard – small parts. Not for children under 3 yrs.


Jelly Belly 3.5 oz BeanBoozled Spinner Wheel Game Jelly Bean Gift Box 3rd Edition with 4 – 1.6 oz BeanBoozled Jelly Bean Refills (Party Pack)

  • 1- Jelly Belly BeanBoozled Spinner Jelly Bean Gift Box – 3.5 oz
  • 4 – Jelly Belly BeanBoozled Jelly Beans – 1.6 oz boxes
  • Flavors include: Stinky Socks, Tutti-Fruitti, Lawn Clippings, Lime, Rotten Egg, Buttered Popcorn, Toothpaste, Berry Blue, Barf, Peach, Canned Dog Food, Chocolate Pudding, Booger, Juicy Pear, Moldy Cheese, Caramel Corn, Baby Wipes, Coconut, Skunk Spray, Licorice
  • All Jelly Belly jelly beans are OU Kosher. Gluten free, peanut free, dairy free, fat free and vegetarian friendly.
  • Take the dare with the spinner wheel, then pick the jelly bean in the color the spinner lands on. It’s a dare for intrepid jelly bean eaters to take their chances on tasting lookalike wild or mild flavors. If you happen to get a Booger-flavored bean instead of Juicy Pear – you’ve been BeanBoozled! Double and triple dare adventuresome players. Each 3.5-oz. box includes the BeanBoozled jelly beans and a colorful spinner.

Fun family games that even little kids can play, Spoons is one of our favorite family games

Last week we spent a week in McCall Idaho with our family. We spend a lot of time on the water, but also played a lot of games as a family. My kids range in age from 13 years old to 14 months old. So finding a game that they can all play and enjoy can be a little challenging.  Spoons however turned out to be a favorite for all of them.  It is for ages 7 and up but with a little help my 5 year old was able to play just fine…. we even let baby sister join in the fun. We gave her the 2 joker cards (since they are not needed for the game) and she happily sat there and held her two cards feeling special to be part of the game.

We played for HOURS at a time, the kids absolutely loved it.  I could have been done after about the first 5 rounds…. but I did totally enjoy the quality time with my kids! They even played it with Papa, truly is a game that people of ALL ages can enjoy.

Easy chore chart, Teach kids responsibility

This summer has been crazy busy! In the middle of all the hustle and bustle I have been trying to get the kids to help more around the house.  They are home all day, and make the mess, so why should the adults be responsible for cleaning it all up? *Disclaimer, my kids are 7, 9 and 12 so I realize that with younger kids this may not work. I also realize that all families are different, but this is what works for us! They have always had chores, but those were just usually kept in my head, which lets face it, sometimes I forget.  I decided since they were out of school it was time to add some chores and increase the difficulty or frequency of some others. My mom used to have a chore chart similar to this, but there were 8 of us on it,yikes! After searching for a chore chart I loved, I decided to go old school and use the method I grew up with. It has been working like a charm.

You will need:

card stock or construction paper (I used 4 sheets)

brads

scissors

fine tip sharpie markers or pens

*Not required but sure helpful, a circle template cutter. This is the one I use and I love it!

There wasn’t a circle size large enough for how big I wanted the biggest circle so I traced a bowl and cut that one by hand with scissors. The others were various sized circles that I cut with the circle cutter.  After the circles are cut, use a brad to hold them together in the middle. Now you can turn the circles to change what they are doing each week.

I wanted a circle for their name, and different tiers for different chores. The first one is the kitchen chores, that need to be done daily, sometimes (but not often) more. The second one are things that may need done more than once a week, but not daily. And the outer circle are chores that need done weekly (although, the take out the trash also requires the person to take out the inside trash bag when it gets full in addition to taking out all the garbage the night before garbage day). In addition to the chart, they are responsible for folding their laundry when it comes out of the dryer and cleaning their rooms.

So far it has worked well! They know they don’t get to do certain things until the chores are done. It is hard for me to let the dishes sit sometimes longer than I would like, but I think it is important to teach them not only to do the chores, but to be responsible to take the initiative to do them without being nagged.  I do remind them a few times, but beyond that they just don’t get video games, devices, etc until it is done. So if they want to waste time, that is up to them. The whole agency thing is a hard lesson to learn and to teach some days!

So, tell me, do you use a chore chart? Does it work in your house? How do you add responsibility when the kids are home for the summer? Does anything change, or are they pretty much the same all year round? Let us know in the comments! I love hearing how other families do things and implementing them in my life as well.

diy birdfeeder, summer boredom buster idea. summer. birdfeeder. birdseed, diy craft, inexpensive craft idea. kids craft, thrifty craft idea

My kids have been getting so bored some days! All they want to do is play video games or watch tv. I get tired of having to say no all the time. This project took up a little time and entertained them. But it also got them using their hands and creating something new.

You will need

Cookie cutters

1 1/2 cups Bird seed
(I got mine at Winco for really cheap in the bulk department)

2 packages unflavored gelatin

1/2 cup water

large bowl

spoon

whisk

saucepan

straw, skewer or lollipop stick

Yarn or string to hang

diy birdfeeder, summer boredom buster idea. diy craft, kids craft, summer. birdfeeder. birdseed, inexpensive craft idea. thrifty craft idea

Begin by bringing your water to a boil and follow directions for adding the gelatin. Once it is done poor it into your already measured bird seed that is in the large bowl. This is where I let my kids stir it together and make sure it is well mixed.

diy birdfeeder, summer boredom buster idea. birdfeeder. birdseed, summer, diy craft, inexpensive craft idea. kids craft, thrifty craft idea

Once it is all mixed, have your wax paper ready with cookie cutters lined up on it. Make sure they are medium to large cookie cutters. We used a small one (the music note) that didn’t work and fell apart.

diy birdfeeder, summer boredom buster idea. inexpensive craft idea. birdseed, birdfeeder. diy craft,  kids craft, summer. thrifty craft idea

Once they are lined up, have the kids scoop bird seed into the cookie cutters. Use the spoons to pack it down to prevent them from falling apart. While still wet use your straw or stick to poke holes where the bird feeder will hang. This didn’t work well for me, I ended up having to use a skewer to poke the same hole again when they were set. Just be sure to do it gently to make sure that you don’t crumble the bird feeder.

diy birdfeeder, summer boredom buster idea. summer.  birdseed, birdfeeder. diy craft,  kids craft, inexpensive craft idea. thrifty craft idea

Let them set for several hours. I did mine overnight before removing from the cookie cutters.  This is where I ended up having to poke the holes all the way through because the seeds had fallen back into the hole. Cut some yarn, twine, whatever you have handy and tie it off.

Now hang it from your tree and get ready for the birds to come feast!

Not only was this a great boredom buster, but if you have a cub scout, it can actually help them towards their awards. So get some bird seed and get busy!
