Our family is in a private group on the internet. How can I get them motivated for the reunion? What fun games can we play within the group online to make it fun to interact? A lot of family members are not participating. How can I keep them entertained? What games could I start so I can get people to play, within this private online group? Our reunion is not until 2017, I want to start having fun as of now. Thank you for any input you may have.

Smart!

First of all, what a great idea! You're smart to recognize that interaction BEFORE the reunion will automatically create more interaction and fun DURING the reunion.

Keep in mind that even though they aren't participating, many family members are likely watching the group waiting for interaction or to see who else is there or to check out what everyone else is doing. So keep everything fun and positive. The longer the group goes, the more likely interaction will become.

Communicate regularly. See if you can create some games or contests that are unique to your family. For example, ask questions about your family history. Or get people talking about childhood memories. Ask for reunion input. Create a weekly posting theme (random acts of kindness, easy family recipes, best books for kids - any theme!) and offer a prize for those who post daily. Keep it simple and cheap - send a digital sticker, for example. Generally, everyone loves to win and everyone loves a freebie, regardless of what the item is.

Keep up the good work!
