My child was invited to a DDD-A-Thon at a friends house. What exactly is it?
This is a party at your friends house (the host decides if it is a daytime party or a slumber party) that will include the them logging on to this website and watching 7 videos describing how to do a specific dare. Examples: Make a face mask using items from the fridge, make a blanket fort, etc. Points for most creative! All of the dares are good clean fun, nothing that will be dangerous or embarrassing. The host will post a picture of the dare on this site and we will pick 1st and 2nd place prizes for each dare. There will be a pizza party and awards ceremony on Sunday, Feb. 24th! Your preteen will NOT WANT TO MISS IT!!!
What do I need to provide for the dares?
You will only need the following items available in your home for the kids to be able to complete the dares; Jar of Peanut Butter (or icing if there are allergies), Large Bag of Stick Pretzels, Black or Brown Washable Marker. All of the other items needed will be readily accessible in your home : )
Can I know what the dares are in advance?
Yes, we will post the Dare Videos on this website one week prior to the event so you will know what the kids will be doing. Please do not allow the preteens to see these prior to the DDD-a-thon!
What time is the deadline to submit photos?
You can submit pictures until 10pm on Feb. 23rd for them to be entered to win prizes on Sunday in Fifty6.
How will you know from the picture which team it is?
In each photo you will make sure there is a piece of paper with your Team Name (aka: the home owners last name) in the picture so we can identify which Team won. Also, when your pictures are uploaded you will add your name/email to the upload site for each picture you send.
How many photos can I submit per dare?
Please just submit one photo per team. If you have more than 6 students staying at your home, divide them into two teams. In the pictures, please specify if it is Team #1 or Team #2 so the correct team wins the prize.
What if I do not want it to be a spend the night event?
You can be creative in how you host your event! I you feel more comfortable hosting it during the day, you can have your kids' friends come over for pizza and dares and not include the spend the night option : ) It is important that you tell the kids who participate to meet at Crossbridge at 11:30am on Sunday, Feb. 24th for a pizza party and awards ceremony.
What do I do if I can’t connect my child with a slumber party?
If you’re having trouble connecting, please contact Jennifer at firstname.lastname@example.org for a list of existing slumber parties and she can help you find some new friends in the Fifty6 Ministry. We truly want every preteen in our ministry to be a part of the Double Dog Dare-A-Thon!
