If you’re tired of your kids staring at the TV or computer, try this to get everyone laughing and having fun. A family game night will work wonders for boredom and bring your family closer together.
My son played this at a birthday party and it was a huge hit with the boys, come on, whipped cream and things flying at your face, you can’t go wrong. It takes the kids away from their screens and gets you all tons of laughs.
Sometimes I have to do two games, one for my daughter and one for the boys who enjoy playing Risk and Scrabble, either way it makes it fun for the whole family.
My daughter did not look forward to having something fly at her face so she moved before the whipped cream could catch her. My son, on the other hand, just kept turning the dial so that it would throw the whipped cream at him so he could eat it.
He also perfected it so that it would land near his mouth since the first two tries resulted in the whipped cream landing in his hair and on his nose.
A perfect way to end a game night is with a dessert the whole family loves. I make this wonderful Apple No-bake cheesecake last time so thought I could change things up a bit this time. We used the Gay Lea Lemon Smooth Cottage Cheese and paired it with berries this time.
While a pie would totally suit this game night, I didn’t have the energy to put one together. I’m all about simple and I still topped it off with the Gay Lea whipped cream, which is always a win.
Simple No-bake Berries Cheesecake Recipe
