Today is the 12th and the final day of the $5 Family Fun Blog Tour. Many thanks to our final blogger Leslie of “Storeybook Reviews” for reviewing the e-book. If you are a self-proclaimed book junkie like she is, I recommend you check out her blog. She reviews a variety on genres.
Not only to Leslie, but as this blog tour comes to a close, thank you to the many bloggers who participated and introduced their followers to $5 Family Fun. I hope everyone enjoys the e-book as much as I enjoyed the two years writing it.
Spirit Games – $4
Games – using household items, all are $0
- Opening Ceremonies – create your own tournament torch using a leftover paper towel roll and aluminum foil for the flame. If you happen to have red, orange, or yellow tissue paper in the house, you can upgrade to a more colorful flame.
- Three-Legged Race – partner up and use belts from the closet or rope from the garage to bind legs.
- Individual Sprint – no props needed.
- Relay Race – use leftover paper towel rolls as batons.
- Egg Race – spoons from the kitchen and plastic eggs from your Easter decor.
- Discus – if you have a Frisbee lying around the garage or backyard, this is all you need for a fun and competitive discus toss.
- Closing Ceremonies/Medal Presentation – make medals out of aluminum foil and anything you have around the house to make a medal strap such as giftwrap ribbon or twine.
Feast like a Champion – $4
After the closing ceremonies, go for the gold with these two snack ideas. Only microwave cooking and assembly required.
Popcorn Torch Treats – $2
- Ice cream cones from the dollar store – $1
- Microwave buttered popcorn from the dollar store – $1
- Microwave the popcorn according to package directions.
- Fill each ice cream cone with popcorn to create your torches.
Gold Medal Goodies – $2
- Vanilla sandwich cookies from the dollar store – $1
- Candy rope or candy straws from the dollar store – $1
- Gently twist apart the two sides from each cookie sandwich to separate.
- Into the cream center of one half of the cookie, firmly press the candy ropes (but not so hard as to break the cookies).
- Top with the cookie’s other half and plate your gold medals.
Day 5 of the $5 Family Fun Blog Tour was a very kind review from the blog “Literary Time Out“. It sounds like the blog’s author Andrea Frisby totally gets why I started this writing project to begin with.
If you’re a book lover, her blog would definitely be a great source for new release reviews.
If you’re a fan of popular genealogy-themed TV shows such as “Who Do You Think You Are?” and “Genealogy Roadshow”, make sure to check back tomorrow for Day 6 of the $5 Family Fun Blog Tour.
