"If you have access to a pool, spoons, and goggles — please borrow my recipe for a good time. Kid not required," Garner advised in her caption.

In the video clip, Garner enthusiastically described the game: "It's the best game. We throw our spoons — three spoons each — and we start the stopwatch."

She further explained the rules: "We each have to go and collect three spoons but in different parts and come back and turn off the stopwatch."

Family Bonding Time

"We'd love to show it to you," Garner said before tossing one of the kitchen utensils into the water. The lighthearted reel was set to the cheerful tune of "Mr. Blue Sky" by the Electric Light Orchestra.

Throughout the video, Garner and Samuel demonstrated their game strategy, with Garner wearing black goggles and saying, "I'll go that way," to which Samuel replied, "No, I'll go that way."

"Oh my gosh, the course keeps getting harder and harder," Garner noted gleefully. Checking the time on her iPhone stopwatch, she acknowledged to her son, "You've really set this up to be a tricky one. We have to go at the same time."

Finally, after seeing the time read 00.29.32, she declared, "We’ve got a lot of work to do."
