A Peek at the Fun: If you’re planning a big family reunion and looking for ideas, these family reunion games are just the thing to keep everyone laughing and having fun! Great for big groups and all ages, these are a great way to enjoy your time together.
Summer seems to be the time to gather together as families and have fun! Whether it’s a big family reunion with lots of extended family or a smaller gathering with just close relatives, it’s a great opportunity to kick back and have a good time with all those people you’re related to.
Both of us are headed off to family reunions this week so we thought it would be fun to pull together some family reunion games that anyone can play and enjoy at their gathering to make it even more fun if you’re planning a family reunion this year.
Family reunions are fun but can be tricky. It’s a lot of people of all different ages and it can be hard to keep everyone happy when you’re all together. While we don’t guarantee that these games will create complete bliss, finding fun ways for people to laugh together is a big step to creating fun family harmony. Here’s a look at some great family reunion games that will make your gathering a huge hit with all ages.
Family Reunion Games:
Some of these will vary and work better for large groups who might not know each other as well while some are better for a small gathering, so look through and see what works best for your needs!
Fun for Large Groups:
This is a fun idea that will take a little bit of prep on your part but everyone will love. Create your own bingo board with everyone’s face and then play a traditional game of Bingo. Having fun prizes would make this even better. Some families have everyone bring some $5 prizes (think gift cards, candy, markers, notebook, anything you think people would love to win) and then the winner of each round can pick a prize.
This shirt looks so fun that we want to plan a family reunion just so we can use it! Attach candy all over a shirt and have someone put it on. That person then runs around while the kids try to grab candy off the shirt. The kids will love this!
Teens can be the hardest to keep entertained so we’ve got your back with these teen minute to win it games. Lots of ideas (and the truth is, these will probably work for just about any age) that will have everyone smiling.
This is the best party ever and would make a GREAT activity for a family reunion. You’ll need to do some prep work for this, but it will pay off if you do it. This will work well for anyone about 8 years old and up.
Like hot potato but with a fun camera (phone) that counts down, then snaps a selfie and whoever is left holding it (and having their picture taken) is out. Sounds really fun, doesn’t it?
Get everyone together and test their knowledge of the family and its history. These fun family reunion trivia questions will make a fun game (and prizes would make it even more fun).
