PATIENCE IS A VIRTUE GAME:

Print out each of the phrases (chill out, kick back, etc.)  on a slip of paper and mix them up. 
Have two baskets, one labeled "finding patience" and one labeled "losing patience". 
Each person in the family takes turns describing and acting out what is on one slip of paper,
you can say anything but the words on the paper. 
The other family members shout out the answers.  When the right answer is said, decide if it
belongs in the "finding" or "losing" basket, and put it there.

FINDING PATIENCE

chill out
kick back
take it easy
cool your jets
sit tight
cool as a cucumber
hold your horses
keep your shirt on
hang in there
keep your chin up
take a breather
grin and bear it
bounce back
thank your lucky stars
through thick and thin
Rome was not built in a day
the patience of Job
that's the way the cookie crumbles
that's the way the ball bounces
don't jump to conclusions
when the going gets tough the tough get going
hold your tongue
bite your lip
turn the other cheek
let bygones be bygones
whistle while you work
see's the glass as half full
always look on the bright side
patience is a virtue
look at the world through rose colored glasses

LOSING PATIENCE

to have a cow
all bent out of shape
to flip your lid
to go postal
to go through the roof
madder than a wet hen
to pop a vein
clean your clock
punch your lights out
push your buttons
jump down your throat
to chew out
to get an earful
that burns me up
rubs me the wrong way
gets under my skin
get your nose all bent out of shape
rattles my cage
fight tooth and nail
get your pound of flesh
guns blazing
as mad as a hatter
kick up a fuss
get your knickers in a twist
make a mountain out of a mole hill
driving me crazy
I've had it up to here
go through the roof
got under my skin
makes my blood boil
