The Mat Game

Here is a fun game to play with your friends and family.

What you will need:


2-7 people

What you do: To play you have someone be the caller and what they do is call out any skill and so on. You must do it without going off the mat. With more people it is better. The last one on the mat wins and is the next caller.

I hope you have fun.

12 days of Gymnastics (Would you rather)

It is getting closer and Closer to Christmas. Here is a fun game to take your mind off the endless hours of waiting.

Christmas would you Rather:

Would you Rather have to loudly sing the chorus of “Jingle Bells” every time you walk into a room for a week OR have to wear a Santa suit to school every day for a trup770570001_cf0001week?

I  think I would rather wear a Santa suit to school every day for a week because it would probably be comftorable.

Would you Rather make presents for your family instead of buying them OR make ornaments for your Christmas tree instead of buying them?giphy

Probably, make presents for my family instead of buying them because it is easier then making ornaments and that would take forever.

Would you Rather not celebrate Christmas this year OR not celebrate your birthday this year?

This one is really, really hard but I guess I will choose not to celebrate my birthday. Will you stay the same age? Or will your age go up, but no presents or cake?

Would you Rather have frosty the Snowman for a friend OR Rudolph the red nosed reindeer?

Ugh. They make these so hard. Frosty the Snowman because then we could go on adventures together.

Would you Rather have mistletoe hanging in your bedroom doorway OR have a large, decorated Christmas tree in your bedroom doorway?52351474-31a1-4af0-b7f2-93a5750d6b86

Definetley have a large decorated Christmas tree in my bedroom doorway. That would be really cool.

Would you Rather have Christmas tree tinsel for hair OR have fingernails that light up like Christmas lights?

I like both of them but I am going with have fingernails that light up like christmas lights because then I would never have to paint my nails.

Would you Rather have a nose that glows red like Rudolf’s OR have pointy ears like an elf?

I would have neither but I think I would rather have a nose that glows red like Rudolf’s.

Would you Rather have a job wrapping presents at the mall OR have a job taking pictures of children sitting on Santa’s lap at the mall?

I think I would rather have a job wrapping presents at the mall because I think that that would be more entertaining.

Would you Rather be one of Santa’s elves OR be one of Santa’s reindeer?

I would rather be one of Santa’s Elves because then I could make many things and be of assistance rather than doing the same job over and over again like the reindeer.

Would you Rather see The Nutcracker OR dance in The Nutcracker?

Oh my gosh. Definetley dance in the Nutcracker. I have always wanted to do that.


I hope you comment what you would do on at least one of these questions.

Thank you!

Roll the Dice, Break the Ice

To play this game. You will need a dice.

The rules:

On your own blog make up 12 questions about you and answer them. Then tag 5 people.  Roll the dice to find out who you tag. So number your followers and roll the dice on the computer or just use a normal dice. Which ever number you land on use that number to find out which follower you get. Start in the middle or end or beginning of your followers and count up or down and see who it lands on. Then repeat.

My questions:

  1. What is your favorite skill in gymnastics?                                                                             My favorite skill is probably the Back Handspring right now. But it changes often.57cf22808e2fe
  2. What is your favorite Event?                                                                                                My favorite event is either beam or vault. I can’t decide.  But all of the events are awesome.simone-biles_balance-beam-flip_ap

Skills in 30 seconds

Here is a very fun gymnastics game you can do with friends or family. I love it. It is called: Gymnastic Skills in 30 seconds.

How to play:

Pick an event. Floor, Vault, Bars, or, Beam. Floor is the easiest to do and you can do it at home, but if you have bars, beam, or a vault at home do both floor and another event.

Have one person pick a skill. For floor I would do a roundoff or a cartwheel. For Beam I would do pivot turns or cartwheels. For vault, handstand flatbacks or tuck jumps onto a mat. For Bars, Chin up pullovers or mill circles, if you are a beginner. Or any other skill that all of you can do.

Then you will set a timer for thirty seconds and see who can do the most of that skill in the thirty seconds. Whoever gets the most wins.

Have fun!aid1529908-v4-728px-make-the-team-for-gymnastics-step-13
