A Tricky Challenge to Get You Started: 

Coin Catching à la Elbow! 
Put your right hand on your right shoulder. Point your elbow out in front of you. Lay a penny on the flat part of your arm just above your elbow. Without moving your arm, turn your hand so the palm of your hand is facing up. Very quickly move your elbow down and try to catch the penny with your right hand as it falls. 

The record for caught pennies when I was a kid was a stack of 14. How many can you catch? 

Want more fun? Try licking your elbow. Balance a spoon on your nose. Make a paper snowflake. Play shadow tag or untangle the human knot. There's so much more inside! Grab 1,001 Boredom Busting Play Ideas--and have your best sleepover, birthday party, road tip, babysitting experience, snowy day, or play time ever!
