Join the Friendship Bracelet Exchange
Friendship Bracelet DIY

Here’s how you can join iTwixie’s Friendship Bracelet Exchange! It’s so fun! Here’s how YOU can join the fun:

1. Make a bracelet and put it in an envelope addressed to:

iTwixie Friendship Bracelet Exchange
4551 Forbes Avenue, Suite 203
Pittsburgh, PA 15213

2. Write a note for the girl who’ll get it! Say something like: “Hi! I’m Rebecca and I live near Pittsburgh! Hope you love your bracelet.”

3. Put an extra envelope in, too, that has 2 stamps on it and is addressed to YOU! This is how you’ll get a bracelet back!

REMEMBER: Wrap the bracelet that you send in another piece of paper, or a little plastic bag. It will protect it! And be sure to write HAND DELIVER on your envelope so they don’t put your package in a machine. And then, your bracelet will arrive within TWO WEEKS!

Let’s see if we can get 200 girls to play this game before iTwixie’s 8th Anniversary, which is May 14, 2017!

Ready? GET SET! Go! Tell your friends! It’s so fun to play this game with a bunch of our BFFs!

Thanks, Honestly, for this great picture and DIY tutorial for making friendship bracelets :)

Play Bocce on the Beach
5891437984_158d8d1881

Here’s how you play Bocce:

  1. You play bocce with eight large balls and one smaller ball, which is called the pallino. The large balls come in different colors, to help make up teams. You can divide your group into two groups of 4, 2 or play 1 on 1. Just divide the balls up according to how many players you have.
  2. Then, choose a player to throw the pallino.  After the pallino is thrown, the same player throws her first bocce ball.  The object of the game is to get the bocce ball as close as possible to the pallino.
  3. After the first player has thrown her first bocce ball, take turns throwing a bocce ball by teams, until a team’s bocce ball is closer to the pallino than the other team.
  4. Once a player or team is closest to the pallino, the other player or team throws bocce balls until her ball is closer or she runs out of balls. Then the team with any remaining balls tries to get those all closer to the pallino than any of her opponent’s balls.
  5. Tally 1 point for every ball that is closer to the pallino than the closest competitor’s ball.
  6. Play continues to 13 points.

FUN! You can play bocce in the grass, on the beach or even on a bocce court. So go play bocce a try and tell us all about how much you love this Italian game!

Play iTwixie’s Telephone Game
telephone_game_drawing_by_Mr._Imperial

You will need:

  • between 4 and 6 peeps (if you have more, make teams)
  • 1 sheet of plain paper per person (or team)
  • pencils for each player


You will:

1) each player (or team) will write a sentence at the top of the paper.

2) the papers will be passed once to the right.

3) the next player (or team) will draw a picture of what the sentence says. Then the part of the paper with the sentence will be folded over so that the next person (or team) can only see the picture.

4) the papers will be passed once to the right again.

5) the next player (or team) will write out a sentence describing what is in the picture (no peaking!) Then the paper will be folded again so that only the sentence can be seen (not the picture it is describing or the original sentence).

6) the papers will be passed once to the right again.

7) the next player (or team) will draw a picture of what the sentence says. Then the part of the paper with the sentence will be folded over so that the next person (or team) can only see the picture (not any of the sentences or pictures from earlier).

8) continue this process until the papers are with the original person (or team). Now unfold the paper and see how the “telephone game” has developed! Sometimes it is surprising how much is the same. Most often, it is very funny to see where the “story” has gone.

 

We would love to see photos of your fave “telephone” results! Just send photos to submissions@iTwixie.com

Do you have a fun game for a small group? Send it in! We will print it right here in iMGame ;)

Play Kick the Can
8745798826_76ca019f49

Have a blast this Spring, no matter the weather, when you and your family/friends play Kick The Can INSIDE! Here’s how:

1) Put a small can in the corner  near another door or hallway

2) Whoever is IT counts to 20 and then say, ready or not, here I come!

3) Everyone else should be hidden by then, or crouching to race to the can before the person who is IT

4) You become IT if you get tagged by IT before kicking the can

5) Anyone can kick the can at any time, as long as IT doesn’t tag you first. When someone kicks the can, the game starts over. If the can gets kicked without IT tagging anyone, then IT is IT again!

So fun! Get your parents to play, too. It’s such a fun game of strategy, hiding and fun. Tell us all about YOUR game right here!

(Special thanks to @missmonkey for telling us how fun inside kick-the-can is! Photo Credit: garann)
