Family Reunion Game Ideas

Wondering just what to do to make your family reunions more interesting, fun filled and get more folks involved? Here are some solutions that won't break the bank. First off keep in mind these two important reunion planning principles.

1. The family reunion is about unity.
2. The family reunion is interacting and enjoying all generations.

That said, it's important to be as inclusive has possible when considering activities. kids love to run, laugh, jump, dart and dash. They also like a good mystery and a mutually rewarding competition. That said put forth effort to turn your activities into interest and fun games borrowed from things kids enjoy normally. It may even be a good idea to consult them on a few things.

Many teens  and adults enjoy popular games based on television shows like Family Feud and Jeopardy or the usual games with a twist such as the following:

Water Hose Tug of War
Race Track Relay
Family Reunion Olympics  
Family Reunion Jigsaw Puzzle Race
Family Reunion Spelling Bee
