Creepy & Hysterical

I'd forgotten all about one of the games I used to play as a kid:  My best friend & I called them our "wizards."   We would look at each other upside down, cover up our noses & mouths and see "wizard" faces.  It looked like creepy men with beards.  Sometimes we'd draw lips on our foreheads and then make ridiculous facial expressions to see the mouths move.  Last night, I shared the game with my 4 year old (Christian) & husband (Dave) & my little sister (Morgan).  Christian's wizard was by far the best one I've ever seen.  It was so tiny & his eyes were so big.  I seriously CANNOT handle this:

{It's easier to "see" the wizards if you put your hand over the screen to hide the real nose/ face}

Dave's killed me too.  I drew lady lips on his head and since he's bald, his wizard had no beard, just a massive jowl:


This seriously makes me cry from laughing so hard. 

You won't regret playing.


xoxo, Lauren

Lauren, this is, as you say, hilarious. I cannot wait to play it with some children. I have not seen this before and thank you. It is lovely to learn something new. I can feel the laughs and hysteria that must have been last evening. Laughter, like this, is pricesless and so good for the soul.
To a day of fun and joy

We used to do this when our boys were little and laugh until our bellies hurt. Thanks for the memory!

We used to plan a similar game called Chin-a-gins. Instead you draw eyes under your chin (just above your neck or below your neck b/c you're upside down).

Cover your nose and eyes and your chin becomes a huge nose and you mouth looks hilarious when you talk upside down.

Too funny! I had never heard of this game but now I'm going to try it on the husband. I wonder if you can do it to a dog......

Hi Lauren: I had to comment as we did the same thing only the other end - with the CHIN!!! we didn't draw anything on the chin, but you can! If you look at someone upside down with the mouth and chin, its hilarious! try that one! ;-0

Debbie said...

HAHA how funny, I can't wait to try this with Sophie when she gets a little older! Me and my sister used to paint on our chins..your upside down mouth becomes the mouth and you draw on some eyes and a nose -it was hilarious and would entertain us for a long time! :0)
