3 Fun Games to Play With Your Cat

In this busy day and age most people struggle to find time to do everything they want, and quite often spending time with the family cat is sacrificed for other things, such as TV and work. This is not only bad for your owner-cat relationship but also for your health and the health of your cat as pet owners who frequent with their pets are generally more healthy than non pet owners.

There are however some simple games that you can play with your cat that are fun for both of you, and don’t require too much of your time.

3 Fun Games To Play With Your Cat

1) Cat’s love to chase things, we all know this and know that they cannot help themselves. Using either a torch or preferably a laser pointer, start waving the light in front of your cat and watch them chase after it. You can run the light in circles, across the room, up the walls and the cats just love it. Whenever i pick up the laser pointer they get really excited and start purring, it’s great fun and lets you bond with your cat.

2) Another chasing game that gives you some exercise as well is to get piece of string and move along with one end trailing behind you on the ground. Most cat’s can’t resist the urge to chase it and enjoy being able to pounce on it.

3) One game that younger cats enjoy is what i like to call hide and seek. Basically you hide behind something, get their attention, then duck back down and hide again. It’s a bit like peek-a-boo with a small child but some cats enjoy it just as much.

Fun Games to Play on the Trampoline

Trampolines are not only great for workouts but are also capable of giving you priceless moments of fun through the different games that you could play on it. You can now find trampolines in a number of gyms and fitness centers in the United States. However, not all of these trampolines are used for serious stuff like for example; working out. Some people use it like how it was supposed to be used: for the sheer fun of it.

There are lots of different trampoline games that are made specifically for you to enjoy. These trampoline games serve dual purposes that you would surely benefit from. It doesn’t only give you hours of fun but while at it, it works your body out giving you a great workout experience. It is also a proven fact that jumping on trampolines can help your body detoxify even better and quicker as well as improve the function of your lymphatic system.

It’s an all in one fun and exercise package that is why I don’t know what else would stop you from buying it.
Here is some of the list of trampoline games that you could play with it together with your friends:

1. Jump Rope – it’s like jump rope but you have to do it while bouncing on a trampoline.

2. Follow the leader – a player creates some sort of action while on the trampoline and the goal of the other player is to mimic it exactly. This game is best played with many people.

3. Crack the egg – Basically, the game is played like the normal Crack the Egg game but only on trampolines.

4. Dodge Ball – you need at least six players to be able to play this. There should be other players on the ground and they would try to throw a dodge ball on the people on the trampoline. The people on the trampoline should avoid being hit by the dodge ball.

5. Cold Potato – it’s like regular cold potato game but this one’s done on a trampoline.

There are lots of other games that you could do on the trampoline but basically it’s like regular games except for the fact that it is played on the trampoline. In my opinion, these games are much more fun to do on a trampoline because the fact that you could be able to bounce higher than you usually can do on your bed or the ground is very much fun. It gives you the temporary rush that you get when you feel the awesome weightlessness experience.

Road Trip Games – Fun Games to Play For Long Car Rides

So you’ve bought a nice car and love driving it but when you’re going on a long journey it can become quite boring, especially when you’re driving on a motorway.

Most of these games will be for the benefit of the passengers and not for the driver, as he or she has to concentrate on keeping control of the car. But with your friends or family being kept entertained it is one less worry for the driver.

Here are some of my favorite games for a long road trip.

Counting Animal Life

This is mainly for the kids. Whenever they see an animal such as a sheep, cow or horse they can mark it on a score sheet.

You can make it more interesting by asking them to say something about that animal when they spot it. For example when they see a cow, they might say it’s where milk comes from.

Doing just this will be too simple apart from the very young children but you can change it so they can only mark down and talk about particular types of animals such as birds.

Spot the License Plates

This game is something everyone can play. You’ll first of all need to make a list of all the areas in your country that have different license plates. For example if you live in the US then the list would include Arizona, Maine, Iowa, Texas etc.

Each person has a turn and when they see a license plate for an area of the country that hasn’t been found yet, they will mark it down and get a point. It’s a good idea to have a time limit, so if they can’t find a new type of plate within the given time then they will have to pass onto the next person and they will not receive a point.

The Unknown Star

This is one of the games where the driver can actually take part, as long as they obviously keep their eyes and mind on the road.

Someone will think of a famous film or TV star. The other people in the car take turns to ask one question about the star. The person who knows the star has to answer yes or no.

For example someone might think of Robert De Niro. Someone else might ask “Has the star won an Oscar?” The person would answer yes.

From these yes or no answers, the players can start to build some best guesses to whom the star is.

When someone thinks they know the answer, they can say but if they’re wrong then they’re booted out of that particular game.

You can also use the same idea for other games such as thinking of films or types of cars.
