Bored? Let’s Game!

ADVENTURE INTO THE BORED GAMES

Welcome the week of BORED GAMES where we will explore games to break the boredom! Today, we’ll look at online games you can play with your friends and family.

Not only can they provide a chance to connect with a friend or relative that you’re not able to visit while following stay-at-home guidelines, but they are a ton of fun!

Share your Design Challenge creations with us on Facebook and Instagram or email us at dailyadventures@tomtodideas.org. We can’t wait to see what you create!

Student Design Challenge

Play Codenames with friends or family over video chat. We like Codenames because of how it stretches you to creatively find a connection between a list of words. Not only that, but you get to work together as a team with people that you care about!
