Simple Family Games Day

Yesterday, we had snow day, so I let my boys decide how they wanted to spend their day at home.  They decided we should have a special "Games Day".

Of course, we needed a special snack, so we made a domino cake.  We started with a rectangle cake, frosted the cake with chocolate icing, and added some white Oreo cookies.

Then, we gathered a few of our favorite games.  The boys chose Connect Four, Scrabble, Yahtzee, and Skipbo.

Finally, we did some simple decorating.  We taped some playing cards to the windows, and we put our Twister mat on the table as a tablecloth.  Cute, right?

I didn't go to a lot of work, but a few special touches made the day extra fun for my boys.  We had a fantastic "Family Games Day".

What is your favorite game to play with your family?
