Family Fun Night at National Christians In Action is geared to bring families together in a fun-filled, adventurous environment.
Participants of Project Better had a blast playing the game"Survivor". Teams were paired off and competition began with each participant learning the importance of team in table to table challenges. Some of the games included pick up the erasers with chopsticks, egg in the spoon, worms in the mud, solve the math riddle, balloon volleyball and more.
Participants had a blast competing for prizes and to be the crowned the winning team. Parents joined in on the fun and were allowed to help coach the participants. The room rumbled with cheers and laughter from participants, parents and guest!
Participants also enjoyed competing in a pizza cook off. Each child had a variety of veggies, meats and other toppings to create their very own pizza. Councilmen Timothy Williams and other judges decided on the best three (3) pizzas and the winners received medals for the effort. Next, we held aIce Cream Sundae contest to see who could make the most delicious and creative Ice Cream Sundae. Once again medals were awarded to to the winners. Next, participants relaxed and played a variety of board games such as "Monopoly", "Connect Four", "Checkers", "Chess", etc.
Needless to say everyone had plenty to eat and tons of fun. Family Fun Night has become a tradition of Project Better with everyone having a great time.
