"Can We Play Doors?"


Based on the old "Let's Make a Deal" game show, we made up a version of the game to help pass the time in line ups or when the car ride is feeling too long. It goes like this:
"Pick to see what's behind door number 1, 2 or 3."

Let's say Spud picks number 2. Then I say "Well, behind door number 1 is a trip to Paris! ... too bad you didn't pick that one". He usually plays along and acts as though he cares about Paris or whatever other swanky item I put out there.

"And behind door number 3 is a bag of old leaves! Aren't you glad you didn't pick door number 3?!".

Then, behind the door he DID pick is something he was going to get anyway, like a snack or something but it could also be a nickle or a hug or a song or some random thing I find in my purse.

It's also fun to have him tell me to pick a door. I win the craziest things!
