Take the Pairs Out of Socks
If there’s one thing that makes folding laundry exponentially more time-consuming than it needs to be, it’s socks. These wily little creatures never come out of the dryer anywhere near their matching counterpart. What if there were an easier way?
We’re here to tell you that there is. From now on, whenever you need new socks, purchase them in only a single color. (We suggest white or black for convenience.) No matching required! In fact, you don’t even have to ball them up. Just toss them into drawers as singletons and get on with your life.
You and your friends have to form a new superhero squad to protect the planet. Who's in your squad and what are their superpowers?
Sorry, but your hands have to be replaced. What would you replace them with, if robot hands, hooks, or claws aren't an option?
What's the best day of the week?
An epic feast is held in your honor. What’s on the table?
If magic was real, what spell would you try to learn first?
Family Game Night
Our hours of daylight are gradually extending again, but they’re still too limited for after-dinner outdoor excursions. It’s tempting to return to screens for the evening downtime, but how about some family games instead? These three options make for a fun night for everyone—no special equipment required.
20 Questions is a classic game that can be played at home, in the car, while you’re waiting in a long line for a Covid-19 test—wherever you happen to be. One person thinks of an object and the rest of the group has to figure out what it is, asking only up to 20 questions. But if you’ve been there and done that already, here are five other “thinking games” that you might not have tried before. PLAY
You’ve played Charades, but have you heard of Fishbowl? If you’ve got 4 people or more, give this one a try. (You could even bring in extra family or friends on Zoom!) All you need is some scraps of paper, a pen, a bowl to put them in, and a timer. PLAY
For a quieter “on paper” game for two, try Dots and Boxes. Here’s how to play. PLAY
