Truth or Dare Ball

Contrary to popular belief, we do more than eat here at my house, especially if there's a party going on.

As mentioned in my last post, my daughter recently had her first slumber party and did a lot of the planning herself (with the help of Pinterest).  One of the (many, many) things she pinned was this.  (Original source found here.)  Our inspiration site called it a "Toss and Talk" ball but the girls and I dubbed it a "Truth or Dare" ball.

We originally planned to buy a plastic ball at Walmart as suggested but then realized we had this great blow-up ball hanging around in the playroom.  I liked it because it had little sections that we could use as natural dividers between questions.


Our guests averaged about eight-years-old so I wanted to make sure that the questions (and dares) weren't too risque.   (I actually Googled, "Clean Truth or Dare Questions," and judging from the number of results I got, I was not alone in this quest.)  Other dares included, "Try and pick up the person next to you," or, "Remove the sock on the person to your left and do, 'This Little Piggy' with their toes."

The game is easy: the girls stand in a circle and toss the ball.  The person who catches it answers the question (or does the dare) that is in the same box as her right thumb.  The kids enjoyed it and it's a fun and inexpensive way to break the ice and get the party started.  (And to work off the cake ;)
