Jacks anyone?

Today it is raining so no swimming! With Lord Humble and Red staying at a friends house, it is just the mini monkeys and myself. So to break up the boredom, I decided to teach them how to play the game of jacks. How dangerous can a game of jacks be?

Girly Wirly is getting the hang of it as long as she can bounce the ball WAAAAY above her head.

Mini Man has a totally different approach. He ignores the jacks and throws the ball at someones head laughing harder if he actually hits you.

So maybe jacks wasn't the best choice for a quiet indoor game. Maybe we will just stick to making fruit salad.

For more great summer ideas & tips that won't hurt or break anything, please Bottles Barbies & Boys.

My dad banned Jacks in our house. He worked swingshift and would step on them when he walked in the house at midnight sans shoes. We never seemed to remember to pick them up. . .

LOL Too funny! My boys try to peg each other with the balls too!

Isn't that the fun of little boys? If they can't figure it out quietly, then everything becomes a projectile rocket! LOL
