A List Maker's Life: That's Not Funny

That's Not Funny

"Sometimes the best laughter occurs when you are trying not to laugh. In fact, it often happens when you are tyring your best to be serious and respectful, but somehow your funny bone gets tickled and it's all over but the laughter at that point. This tradition is designed to get your family laughing together!"

I was searching for a fun tradition to start with the kids for the month of April when I came across this idea. It was intended to be an April Fool's Day activity, but I think it would be silly fun to try anytime. I wonder if the kids will get it? I am sure Kevin and I will be hysterical! (Reminds me of the old favorite laughing game from orientation days at Hope...)

Have all your family members sit in a circle with their heads bowed. At the count of 3 everyone must look up and look directly into the eyes of another family member. There are 3 rules that apply to this game:
1. No Talking
2. No Smiling
3. No Laughing
You can only talk if you see anyone with even the slightest grin. Point at them and shout, "That's Not Funny!" (Continue playing until you really can play without smiling at all).

Give it a try and let me know how it works with your family -hee! hee!
