Here are some fun Games we have seen families have
Family Scavenger Hunt This is a twist on an old favorite, where the search is for family information. Kids especially enjoy this game. Before the reunion, gather family information. Then type up a list of questions (questions can pertain to reunion day happenings too). Let players search for the answers in teams throughout the day then grade their completed questionnaires for a prize. Here are a few examples of questions that can be used.
-How did Grandpa propose to Grandma?
-Which relative traveled to this country by boat?
-Who traveled the farthest to be here today?
-Who has the worst sunburn?
-Which relative has the most children, and what are their middle names?
-Who has the loudest laugh?
Dress up Contest
Divide into teams and choose one person to be the dress-up model. Use old clothes, scarves, glasses, shoes, and anything else that you can place on another person/s body to dress up your model. Make your model as funny and creative as possible. The best wins.
Put enough family members together and odds are you'll have all kinds of talents represented. Have everyone get together and have a good old talent show. You can have judges pick a winner or have everyone judge by applause.
In the game Family Lineup, the aim is to get your team lined up according to a single distinguishing characteristic that is called out by someone in the group: birth order, age, height, distance traveled to the reunion, alphabetical state of origin, and so on. The first team to get lined up yells out its order and wins.
Reunion Journal or Scrapbook
Teenage girls often enjoy this activity. Have them capture memorable moments with pictures, funny stories and quotes and compile them into a journal or scrapbook. Everyone can look at it to reminisce, then bring it along to reunions in the future.
