DESTINATION IMAGINATION FAMILY GAME NIGHT
While it seems like the 2013-14 program season just started, we know that many of you have already begun planning fundraising strategies for your first Destination Imagination tournament. What better way to raise money for your team and show your community how creative and innovative DI-ers are then to host a Game Night? In addition to fundraising, hosting a Game Night is a great way to bring your family and friends together for a great night of creativity and fun.
To help you out, our friends at Thinkfun designed a brand new event just for our DI family: Destination Imagination Family Game Night. From duct tape to cardboard, many of the ThinkFun games eligible for Family Game Night can be downloaded directly on their site and constructed with popular household materials often used in DI Challenge solutions.
Any Destination Imagination team that hosts a Family Game Night also has the chance to win a FREE box of games, courtesy of ThinkFun! All you have to do is host a Game Night, register the event with Worldwide Celebration of Mind and upload it to Facebook, Twitter or Instagram with the #DIThinkFun hashtag. The first 20 DI teams to host their Game Night and share it online will automatically qualify to win.
For more details on how to host your own DI Family Game Night and enter the drawing, visit ThinkFun’s DI Host a Game Night page here.
