Let’s unplug this
Saturday night! Let’s kick back, relax, and enjoy some old-fashioned family fun.
Playing games is an easy and
excellent way to spend unhurried, enjoyable time together. As an added bonus,
board games are also rich in learning opportunities such as hand-eye
coordination, number recognition, and counting. Games don't need to be overtly
academic to be educational, however. Just by playing them, board games can teach
important skills such as communicating verbally, sharing, waiting, and
taking turns. Board games can also help increase your child’s ability to focus.
Sound good? Then join us this Saturday night, October 19, for our first Mother
and Son Dominoes and Pizza Night at the Leisure Center. Dominoes is a game of
matching. It is fun and easy to learn, if you have never played, and if you
have played traditional dominoes, then we can’t wait to introduce you to some
of the game variations like Chicken Feet, Blind Hughie, or One Arm Joe!
Games begin at 5:30pm. Come hungry, because after a few games, we will take a break for pizza. After, it will be time put your architectural prowess to work. Moms and sons will create their own unique domino fall. Set ’em up and knock them down. Try zig zags, spirals, or crazy maze patterns. Go for the World Record. (303,621, but who’s counting?) Check out the video at www.DPParks.org. Prizes will be awarded to the team with the most creative fall. Then, it is into the gym, where all the teams will join together to create a gigantic domino topple. Sound like fun? We can’t wait!
Registration is required. So visit www.DPParks.org or call 847-391-5700 today. This is a great date night for you and your little man!
See you around the parks!
