May the Odds...

I'm District 12!

I'm District 9!

I have some stuff for snares and medical supplies. What've you got?

Dude. You're gonna have to run for it when the games begin to get THAT bag!

A dagger!

Oh wow, that's cool. Can I use extra coats for padding? Like a shield?

Wait! Camouflage is MY skill! You can have the climbing skill.

Since I'm the oldest, I can reload my crossbow as I'm shooting it!

Can these work as binoculars?

Is this armor?

Ok! Let's Go! May the Odds be ever in your favor!
Packing her supplies...
Planning an attack...

Edited to add: The Games have moved to the backyard in favor of a more "realistic" feel. But no bloodbaths, or so they tell me. So..... that's a plus.

Thank you, Hunger Games, for a book series that all 3 kids have enjoyed. Thank you for engaging the whole family in books that sparks imaginative play. They're having an absolute blast play-acting the Hunger Games in the basement. I dread the moment I must witness the carnage that will remain once they are done, but it's worth it for the time all 3 of my kids from ages 13 to 6 (and their friend) play together.

I'd also like to recommend Suzanne Collins' series, Gregor the Overlander. If your family likes The Hunger Games, Percy Jackson, Harry Potter, etc. then they will like Gregor, too. TRUST ME.Link
