Attention Parents! Winter break is upon us, and I know the last thing you want to hear from the kids while they are home from school are those two dreaded words that have the magical ability to muster up a hearty helping of frustration and irritation — “I’m bored.” Look around you, you may say to your children. Do you see all of the toys, books, and other various activities that virtually crowd out everything else in the house? How can you possibly be bored? This is the kids’ cue for dramatic eye-rolling.
Not this year! This is the year when every kid in the family can find something fun to do, and here’s the best part…it won’t cost much money and requires very little space, both of which are already at a premium for most families. My favorite new fun family you-have-no-reason-now-to-say-you-are-bored purchase is the Hat Trick 4ft Air Hockey Table. There truly is something for everyone. Personally, I love that my kids don’t come away from this table with a blank, mindless stare so often accompanied by screen-time activities.
Banish boredom! Yes, it can be done. Let them soak in it for a while, and I guarantee they’ll eventually head to the game table for some rip-roaring, boredom-busting good times.
In today’s news, Rivals.com and Yahoo! Sports features an article about the top 10 most unusual sports venues ever. There are definitely some strange ones! For instance, Andre Agassi and Roger Federer playing a tennis match at Burj Al Arab hotel – 700 ft about the ground on a helicopter landing pad? The thought alone makes me dizzy! This venue, with only a thin net below for safety, is definitely not for the faint of heart.
The article also mentions college basketball games played on aircraft carriers, squash matches played in clear boxes at Grand Central Station, and golf played on a glacier. These interesting venues add a whole new aspect to the games that players already love and offer a most unique experience.
While you might not be playing tennis on a helipad anytime soon (unless you plan on making a trip to Dubai), you can bring the thrill of your favorite game to your own arena – your home! Indoor game tables provide a great family activity or a chance to unwind with friends. Table tennis, air hockey, poker, foosball, pool, darts, and even basketball can all be enjoyed in the warmth and comfort of your home. Create a fun, friendly, and competitive atmosphere at home – no extreme location required! They also make wonderful Christmas gifts!
As much as we all love being outside and enjoying beautiful weather, the cold temps do not have to take away all of your fun! You can find some really amazing indoor game tables to keep you entertained when going outdoors is not an option. They are great for all ages and will make the perfect bonding experience for multi-generational families. When my own family gets together for Thanksgiving and Christmas, we are always looking for fun ways to spend the day. These games are going to be a huge hit! Air hockey, pool, foosball, darts, and even a 20-in-1 game table are sure to offer something for every member of my family and yours. They also make perfect Christmas and birthday gifts! You will be entertained for hours – rain or shine.
