Even if you no longer look to toys or the like to have a little fun, there are still certain items that bring out the child in all of us—be it a video game with an intelligent plot and gripping storyline, figures of your favorite fictional characters, or even just some silly string. In fact, silly string is probably more likely to be entertaining for most stressed out teenagers and adults of this day and age than the other two examples. The only reason why it would be ruled out by most people if because the thought of playing with silly string is, to be frank, silly. If it is given the chance however, it can unlock those old carefree feelings you used to have when you were a child, making it the logical choice when compared to just playing some video games—because everyone needs those moments where you can just run around, laughing and not a care in the world. Using this article, you will be able to follow some fun different ways to enjoying silly string, but it will only really be useful if you are willing to let go of your problems (even if for just a moment), and feel similar to how you felt when you were still a child.
- Pick your poison. One of the most entertaining aspects of silly string is that it comes in all manners of colors and designs. You can go ahead and choose which one you like, or perhaps if you are feeling up to it, you could purchase a lot of different types so that you can have some real fun—especially since you could play all kinds of different party games with silly string, and if there is going to be some level of competition, then each team should have a different color of silly string. It is all entirely up to you.
- Get creative. Once you have the kind and color of silly string you want, feel free to act like a child when you want to. Of course there are times when you have to act responsibly, but when it comes to suddenly ambushing your family or friends, it can be more than just great fun—you could even look for spots where you can spray them with the silly string and they wouldn’t be able to spot you. If it is too difficult to do it in your home, then plan it out in the yard; randomly ambush your loved ones with a generous amount of sticky string and feel your inner child come back to you.
- Get creative with some friends. What is the only thing better than covering someone in silly string? That is to cover someone in silly string with the help of a goofy friend. Purchase what you can and pass it around to friends and family so that everyone can join in on the fun. Go after the ones who don’t have silly string, or go after each other. Play little games such as tic-tac-toe with silly string, and spray your friends all over if they lose.
You do not have to be a rocket scientist to learn how to play and have fun with silly string—you simply have to have the imagination to do so. And because it is so easy to clean, you can spray to your heart’s content.
