You NEED fun family reunion games!
A smart family reunion planner knows that fun group games can make a BIG difference at the family reunion. And you know what? Good news! Because usually the fun kid games, most memorable outdoor yard games and wackiest icebreaker activities are completely FREE and require very few props.
I promise -
Fun family reunion games will create memories. And that's what it's all about! (And here you thought it was all about the Hokey Pokey.)
I'm so excited about my most recent find! Playmeo - a searchable online database of group games, activities and ice-breakers with video tutorials. PERFECT for family reunions!
One of the most memorable family reunions I attended as a kid was the
one where I was in charge of running some simple, fun kid games with
the younger children. Wow!
Running those games made me feel like I belonged! (Not to mention that the party planner in me was born!)
I was a very shy child and really needed some getting to know you activities, even though I was supposed to already know my family.
You have to think about what YOUR family will enjoy the most. Do you need some getting to know you questions? Or maybe some icebreaker activities? Do you need indoor games for kids or outdoor lawn games? Or both?

Fun Family Board Games
Games with Puzzles
I'm a firm believer that carefully selected games can be THE single most important aspect of your family reunion.
Even if you're not the family reunion planner, it's still a good idea to go to the family reunion PREPARED with a few activities, games and props for those dull moments. Time is too precious to waste!
My favorite grab-and-go props include:
You could also grab a couple of family board games, the croquet set or a few printable word puzzles.
