Josh Darnit and his children participate in the “exact instructions challenge” where Darnit follows their precise instructions for making a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and results are somewhat unpredictable. The children make multiple revisions and become increasingly frustrated as Darnit interprets their words as literally as possible. This is hilarious and makes me miss my kids even more.
We asked the kids to write instructions for a simple task but left out that we were going to be following their instructions EXACTLY as written. Great lesson for communication and a fun practice in patience!
