Planning activities for a family reunion can be tricky considering the span of ages. Its likely though, as long as the kids are having a good time, everyone else will be too!

Here are a few games and activities to consider:

Family Olympics

Break off into teams and have each member participate in a event. Events could include everything from a doughnut-eating contest to potato sack races.

Guess Who?

Tell everyone to bring a dated photo of themselves to display and have others guess who it is. Photos with hilarious hair and clothing always steal the show!

Scavenger Hunt

Give each group a list of items to catch on their digital cameras or phones (two people holding hands, a bird in flight, someone wearing red etc.) and see which group snaps the most in the allotted time.

Bingo

Bring a bingo set and assign someone to call numbers (or rotate). Bingo is simple but entertaining and loosens people up with a little competition. The informal structure is perfect for a reunion allowing family members to come and go as they please. It also gives people a break from constant socializing:) Throw in a few prizes to up the ante!

Pick a choose a few activities but above all remember, DON’T STRESS about the details. Everyone will have a great time just catching up and enjoying each others company!
