Where Thoughts and Opinions Converge

We like Spontuneous! It's this fun game where you make a list of words and the other players try to be the first to come up with a song that has that word in it. You can find out what songs your kids like, and share some of your own. The looks on their faces are priceless, and sometimes I've had to blow the dust off some cassette tapes to show them that yes, there really was a song called "Rump Shaker!"
