With the holidays and tons of gatherings coming, one thing always seems to happen, at least in our house – the question of what to do with the downtime for both kids and adults before and after the food shows up!
There are a few choices in this matter:
- First, you can just let everyone mingle and chat and do their own thing.
- Second, you can do something structured that has everyone laughing, playing along and killing time without asking every few seconds about when the food is coming.
- Third, you can just let the kids run amok.
I personally prefer to do the second one. Usually, I end up making the games or finding something on the internet and praying that it works as well as it looks. Now, I’ve got something that is foolproof and I know will be awesome for our next party when I break it out. That would be Python Printable Games!
There are all sorts of party games for every occasion that you can print out, pass out and have a blast with.
When I first went to the menu of all their printable games, I was floored by the selection. There wasn’t just one general type of game, there were games of every single sort for every age group, for every possible event. They didn’t leave any event untouched – from the kick off of NFL Football to a slumber party to Mardi Gras! They even brought back one of my favorite things, paper dolls. I was so tempted to just download the fairy ones (because they not only have colored clothes, but you get blackline masters and you can color your own!) and play with them myself, but then I remembered that I had a party to think about!
I ended up opting for the Halloween Pack.
40 games? There had to be something for everyone. And there absolutely was!
For younger kids, this pack contains coloring sheets, pin the head on the monster, word searches and spot the difference games, as well as many, many others, depending on the age and reading level of the kids involved.
For the teen and adult set (I put them together, because a lot of my friends would LOVE to do some of the games that are labeled teen!) , there is a Twilight crossword puzzle as well as some really awesome scary movie trivia. I had a hard time with the scary movie trivia, and I consider myself pretty knowledgeable in that area! I love a good scary movie, but some of these were pretty obscure – and I loved it!
There are also scavenger hunts for everyone as well as some really fun candy trivia and pirate lingo, because who doesn’t like to talk like a pirate!
As someone who loves instant gratification in her purchasing, I was thrilled that I didn’t have to wait for Python games to print me out the items themselves and send them to me. I was thrilled that a link was sent directly to my email and I was able to access the games from there. I think I nearly killed my ink from the beautiful, full color games that I was able to download.
Beware – you need to make sure you save your games so you can print them whenever you need them! The provided link only allows 5 visits before it expires. For people like me, that’s a great thing. I had to use 3 out of my 5, because of a few computer swaps due to various issues. It was lovely to have that luxury of ‘if I lost it, it was as quick as a click away’ and there it would be again, ready to be saved. I suggest you download all the games you need at your first visit.
The games download in PDF format and come with an answer key, which is great-especially if you don’t know certain trivia or just aren’t well versed in the Twilight Universe!
Now, I can’t wait to see how my guests react to these fun, diverse games that I can print out from my computer – and not worry that I have enough!
It’s winner’s choice of a printable game pack, and FIVE winners!
