This image of a blindfolded Santa reminded me of a game I like to play with my kids or myself when someone claims that she is bored. We go to a craft book or a recipe book and open it to a random page and then we have to make whatever is there. Or we will go to Pinterest and do something similar. I might go to one of my saved boards or I might type in a topic to narrow down whatever my kids and I are in the mood for. Say, “yummy dessert”, or “water games”,  for example. Then I will cover my eyes and scroll down a number of times, hold out my finger, et voila! Whichever ‘pin’ my finger touched is what we are going to do.

Because so often we are paralyzed by the sheer number of choices we have in front of us. It becomes fun and relaxing and even comical when we gamify our decisions in this way…
