Games to play with an iron

Homemakers know how to have fun too.  Who said there was only one use for a hot iron?

  1. Telephone – A game to test your reflexes.
  2. Dodge-iron – It seemed like a good idea at the time.
  3. Limbo – How low can you go?
  4. Iron tag –  Of course “base” should be as far from an outlet as possible.
  5. Home tatoo parlor – Highly efficient, but the choices are a little limited.
  6. Tether-iron – Remember tether ball from grade school?
  7. Iron skating – safer than roller skates because they go slower.
  8. Soccer – You might want steel-toed boots for this variation on the traditional game.
  9. Create unique floor art – Not technically a game, but it bears mentioning because we’ve done this.
  10. Duck, Duck, IRON! – Just like the game you played when you were a kid, except not!

  1. wow, yall are just as weird as we are :). And brave enough to post it! love it!! and glad I found your blog- I also always enjoy finding families that are actually bigger than mine… If I get told that “my hands must be full” every day, I have to wonder what you hear :). Thanks for an awesome blog.

  2. This is making me laugh. I also like SmockityFrocks’ comment.

  3. LOL.. I like Smockitys comment too.

  4. I love this! Your daughter is very talented, and funny. :o)

  5. Oh, that is soooo baaad and soooo funny! The comments are most entertaining as well!

  6. Smockity,
    Whatever do you mean? I told them to wear steel-toed boots if they kick it.

  7. Too Cute! Your families humor and ours are a lot alike! Keep cool and enjoy your day!

  8. Great job, Megan!

  9. That is HILARIOUS! I love the devious faces.

  10. What? No disclaimer? Smockity predicts third degree burns and angry, albeit somewhat dense, readers.

  11. LOL!!!

    That’s really good – you should start a series:
    Games to play with…
    …a microwave
    …a rolling pin
    …a sewing-machine

    One for each of your children…

    Love it!!! Though…I have to agree with all of the others…the girl looks a little like…Deanna??? NO, it couldn’t be!!!

  13. Have you all ever used a hot iron (turn off steam) to remove white, cloudy, moisture spots from wood furniture? It really works. Use newspaper between the wood and iron. It hasn’t wrecked the finish or wood surface yet.

  14. hahahahahahahaha

  15. I think the south Texas heat has finally gotten to y’all ; ) lol

  16. reminds me of when I ironed on the carpet and it melted…..:-(

  17. p.s. The Floor Art idea is intriguing… like using a giant wood burning tool. 🙂

  18. 🙂 Are you going crazy like I am at my house?

  19. That is kind of scary!! You shouldn’t post stuff like this!! Some one might try to PLAY those GAMES!!!!!

    After Jenny said that the girl l;ooked like Deanna, I went back up and….. No offence Deanna….

    <3 Y'all,

  20. OK, that was weird. Who drew that? And why does the girl with the iron look so much like Deanna?


  1. […] and hopeless. If you don’t like that, please don’t read it. Maybe you should read this or this instead. But, if you wanna know, what my life is like at the moment, please read […]

Don't just think it: say it!
