(TIMELAPSE) Use bagpipes to inflate three balloons (over the drones).
Item 70 – Family Obstacle Course Day 2.0
(TIMELAPSE) It’s time for Family Obstacle Course Day. 2.0! Nothing gets the kids more excited about doing household chores than making it a challenge. Design a challenging obstacle course that incorporates no less than 3 chores that must be done and speed run its completion. – Inspired by the Ackles Family
Item 19 – LGBTQIA Drip Painting
(TIMELAPSE) A melted-crayon rainbow “drip painting” portrait of an LGBTQIA icon or message of LGBTQIA inclusion and support.
Item 46 – Child Cutting Hair
TIMELAPSE. I recently let my children take the reins on my personal grooming and I’ve never felt better about not being able to go outside among other people. They say misery loves company, so now it’s your turn: let the youngest person in your household that’s old enough to use scissors cut your hair and document the experience. (Don’t advise them. After all, they’re the expert.)

GISHMAS 2019 – Item 1 – Stocking Run
It’s time for the annual GISHMAS Stocking Run! Fill small holiday stockings, packages, or bundles with necessities like socks, water, food, mittens, etc and a few small, joyful things (small stuffed animals, playing cards, paperback books, candy, a greeting card… you get the idea) for people experiencing homelessness. Then, hang them up in an area where they will be found or if you prefer, hand them out in person to those in need.
Item 100 – Burn Something Negative
TIMELAPSE. Write a phrase on a piece of wood of something negative you say about yourself to silence yourself or hold yourself back. Burn the wood and the phrase in a fireplace or fire pit. Use the ashes to write something affirming about your strong self on a sheet of white paper.
Item 29 – Blindfolded Fine Dining
(UP TO 20 SECONDS: You may speed up and edit video) The big trend in experience-based restaurants has you eating in total darkness, but these gimmicky restaurants charge a fortune. We’re bringing it to the masses: Take a dinner date to an upscale restaurant – the fancier, the better – wear white. There must be a white linen tablecloth. Sit across from each other and feed each other dinner while both of you are blindfolded. You must be serving one another red wine too.
Item 2 – Footlong Hands-Free S’mores
TIMELAPSE. Nothing caps off a good, hot summer day like a footlong s’mores eaten by two, Lady and the Tramp Style. (No hands may be used in the creation of or eating of the s’mores.) – Rae M.
