Family Fun Night with the LightHouse Youth Program

Three youth playing “cotton ball scoop” - a timed game where they had to move cotton balls, using just a spoon in their mouths, from one bowl to another bowl that is placed on a team-mates head. Each player is given 5 minutes to move as many as they can. The team with the most cotton balls at the end of 5 minutes wins.In early March members of our Youth Program and their families from around the Bay Area gathered to participate in the first Family Game Night of 2015. The evening was filled with good old-fashioned fun that had each family working as a team. There was a mummy race, a paper airplane throwing contest, a frozen t-shirt race, a cotton ball scoop race, Tactile Twister and more. The evening finished up with families facing off in the egg drop competition.
