Crosswords Are Great Weekend Boredom Busters

April 18, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 127

You don't have to spend your weekend in utter boredom. Even if you don't have any get-away lined up with your friends, you can still have fun together. You can opt to have a sleep-over starting Friday night and think up of activities for the next day. There are many things you will enjoy doing and one of these is solving crosswords together.

Start Your Day with a Crossword

Crossword puzzles are perfect accompaniments to breakfasts. Whether you are making and having pancakes, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches or cereals with your glasses of milk, coffee or juice, you can still enjoy solving the puzzles together. As they can be found in daily newspapers, you can pore over the crossword page together and come up with the answers. You can even make this into a game with the one getting the answer right getting an extra pancake, an extra swipe of peanut butter and jelly or another two spoonfuls of cereals.

Make a Game Out of Answering Puzzles

To make your day even more entertaining, you can even use these crosswords to determine who gets to cook lunch and dinner, who gets to help in the preparations and who should be in charge of the dishes. Although you would need more crossword puzzles for this, instead of just the one in the newspaper, you can easily get them online. Just find a site that offers these, download them and have them printed.

The Winner Gets the Perks

The rules of the game could differ. You could have a puzzle each and the one that gets to finish answering it first will be winner. The person with the most wins will have the power to assign the tasks in preparation for lunch and then dinner to those who lost in the game. Another way to play the game is to answer a crossword together using different coloured pencils and the one with the most answers wins. The winner could also have the privilege of getting an extra piece of chicken or another slice of cake during the meals.

Kiss Boring Weekends Goodbye

You won't have to spend another boring weekend with your friends if you make use of your time with each other in answering crossword puzzles, especially if you will turn it into a game that will go on for the entire time you are together. You will surely have tons fun doing it this way. You can even try out some other puzzles aside from crosswords like codewords or Sudoku. They are sure to occupy and entertain your weekends making you say goodbye to boredom for good.
