Let's Twist

License Comments

I have yet to introduce my children to the game of Twister, but I believe it is time that we pull out the bendy and goofy classic.

Twister is a riot in its own right, but I’ve got a few ideas to up the fun... and the mess factor slightly.

Let’s start by pointing out that if you don’t have a Twister game, you can pretty easily make your own using an inexpensive white shower curtain and some sharpie markers. You don’t even have to fill in the whole circle. As long as you can easily tell which dot is which colour, you’re good to go.

The colour board could also be easily made out of cardboard and a fastener or...there’s an app for that. Yes, there actually is. You can download a talking Twister spinner app.

Yay technology!

Our first variation is shaving cream Twister. Buy a couple of cans of shaving cream, and spray a bunch into four bowls. Then put food colour – yellow, red, green, and blue – into each bowl, and mix so that you have the appropriate colours for Twister.

Using a big spoon, load up each circle on the Twister mat and have at it. You’ll definitely want to wear clothes you don’t mind getting dirty.

The second variation is similar but a bit more messy. This time, clear out a space, likely outdoors, and add washable paint to each circle in the appropriate colour. It would probably be more fun to wear all white, so that you are a blank canvas, and can create some art while you play.

I also think this would be a fantastic themed photo session – if you want to do it, call me.

The last variation is much tamer. Take a cardboard box and cut a circle in the bottom of it. Next, gather your four colours of spray paint, and using the stencil, create your own lawn Twister. This would be fantastic for a gathering or party as it can be used over and over again.
