Valentine’s HedBanz

HedBanz* has quickly become a family favorite at our house, so I made a Valentine's version to play for Family Night this week. If you aren't familiar with the game here's a quick break down. You wear awesome plastic headbands that have a slit to hold the card. Without looking at the card you insert it into the slit, and then by asking questions you try to figure out what you are. Kind of like 20 questions. Only instead of 20 questions, you are racing against a timer. If you get it before your time is up you pick another card and keep asking until your time expires. Then it's the next person's turn. When it comes around to you again, you pick up asking questions where you left off before. This would be a fun game to play at a class party.

Next, I took some Elmer's Glue-All and put a thin layer of that over top of the glitter so that it would seal it in.  I don't plan on washing these pieces in my dishwasher so it shouldn't be a problem that way. If you are wanting to wash I would suggest hand washing. Here a … [Read more...]
