How happy would the kids be if you said, "Okay, you can wrestle in the back seat?" A lot. When you add, "But you can only use your thumbs" they won't miss a beat. Siblings love being competitive, even if it is just over who has the strongest thumb.
Number of players:
What you need:
- a thumb
Both players place their thumbs in mid-air, facing one another. With the right hand fingertips, grab your opponent's right hand fingertips and clasp tight together.
You are ready to begin! Try to catch one another's thumbs, it sounds easier than it is. Once the wriggling and giggling commences, this game is anyone's!
The only way to win is to pin down the opponent's thumb for a set count of 5.
