Have you seen the “Not my Hands” challenges going around on YouTube? In these challenges, Player 1 does the talking and doesn’t use their hands at all. Player 2 stands behind them using their arms to perform the actions Player 1 calls out.
Here’s an example to give you an idea:
This one is by a YouTube channel called Sis VS Bro
Imagine all of the fun you could have!
Putting makeup on
Washing the dishes (No glass or knives please!!)
Styling your hair
Brushing your teeth
You want your players to be pretty close to one another. It’s probably a good idea to have them slide into an oversized T-shirt. This way, their bodies will be close enough that Player 2 can put their arms through the sleeves of the shirt and won’t be able to see what their hands are doing. Player 1 will need to be in the front since they are the eyes of this challenge.

You’ll also want to be sure all of the items that you need to complete the task are right in front of the players, that way, they don’t have to risk walking around while stuck together!
What Makes this so Great?
Not only will your the players have a BLAST, they will also learn the importance of communication and working together. I’m pretty sure after going through this challenge a few time, any child will be able to see that when explaining a process no detail can be left out.
Imagine doing this process with teams and having a timed race!
Okay everyone, today we are going to talk about Fidget Spinners. If you don’t really know much about them you might want to take a few seconds and check them out on YouTube.
If you took my advice and checked them out then you definitely want one now! When looking for a fidget spinner, you want it to spin….FAST. But, fast isn’t always enough. To pick the perfect fidget spinner for yourself or your child, you need to decide on what material you would like it to be made of, what color you might like, and what shape you want to try. Every variation will yield a different result. The good thing is that most are cheap enough, if you don’t really like one, you don’t feel too bad buying another one.
The Love to Learn Elmo is aplush dollthat moves his mouth when he talks. He sings about 10 songs, laughs, and plays games with your child. It even has an app that can be connected to your toy via Bluetooth! Once you are connected, Elmo can say your child’s name and can guide them through games on the app.
If your 5- 12 year old has been on YouTube within the past few months, they have probably seen a DIY slime video. That is definitely the case at my house! They watch a million videos and then they BEG to make it at home.
