    I can’t seem to locate your book. It looks so fun. Every year at Christmas our family plays minute to win it games. We have a 6 and 8 year old who plays with the adults.
    Your idea’s are perfect for our family.

    Should your book be on amazon? I couldn’t find it for some reason.

    • Hi Shiela! Unfortunately, I have not written a book yet. That is something on my “to do” list. Maybe your comment will give me the push I need to finally get one done and on Amazon. 🙂 The best that I can do for now is offer you all of the fun Minute To Win It Games on the site. We’ve tested the games with kids in mind. The ones that bombed or were too frustrating, we changed to fit kids or shelved them for a later time. Hopefully you’ll be able to find many fun Minute To Win It Games here on the site to play with the kids.
