Summer vacation is finally here but that doesn’t mean I want my kids to stop using their minds. I like to find activities that make them think because I don’t want any lazy brains around here! My family spends a lot of time playing games, so I was happy when Marbles The Brain Store recently sent us two of their newest games to play with.



Tugie is a two player game where you take turns rolling the die  to see which color piece you need to tug from the Tugie Tower. If any pieces fall while you tug, you must keep them and they count as points against you. The player with the least amount of fallen pieces at the end of the game wins. This is a game of balance and precision that will help develop fine motor coordination.

Kayla and I already have a few games of Tugie underneath our belt. We both have different stratagies when it comes to trying to win. I like to to tug a piece as fast as I can when it is my turn. If I go slow, my hand starts to shake and game pieces start to wiggle. Sometimes it works, other times I end up with a few pieces on my side of the table.


Kayla has a steady hand and tugs her pieces out with no problem. She has had a great time showing me her skills. When she has to tug game pieces during a turn, she loves to show off her skills and tugs out both pieces at the same time!

Tugie is for ages 5 and up. We had fun playing it together, I definitely need to practice a little more. The kids have not even put it away. They have it out on the table so they can play whenever.

Sock Puppet Charades

Sock Puppet Charades is a fun twist on a classic game. You get to use use sock puppets on your hands with different props. It comes with 200 cards with clues to “act” out.

Kayla loves our new sock puppets that she named Brenda and Augustus.

She loves to use her imagination so she couldn’t wait to play Sock Puppet Charades.

I got better the more we played.

This one was back scratching.

Augustus was driving here. Kayla is really good at charades.

Sock Puppet Charades for ages 8 and up. After a few games, my fingers were tired from all the stretching but we had a ball. If was fun seeing how creative we all could be and there were a lot of laughs. The props help out a lot and time goes by fast!

You can find both games at Marbles The Brain Store. Tugie is $29.99 and Sock Puppet Charades is $24.99
