Family reunions are precious opportunities for renewing relationships and friendships, catching up on old times, reliving marvellous memories, creating brand new memories, and just being together again, enjoying one another's company.
You may be planning an annual family reunion with close siblings and cousins or a 'once-a-decade' reunion with relatives that you may, or may not know, all that well.
Your reunion may consist of an entire weekend event, held locally or away, or simply an afternoon or evening together.
Without a doubt, a family reunion can be a wonderful, happy memory-making event filled with fun, laughter, plenty of photos and great food. However, unfortunately there is the potential for it to be a disaster for everyone.
The key to a successful family reunion is definitely in the planning. In many instances the adults may know each other quite well and simply enjoy catching up, but what has been planned for the children? If the event is not well planned, the children (or even adults) may become so bored that they never want to attend another reunion again.
One very important consideration involves the activities you are planning. Have you planned enough activities to cater for everyone? Have you thought about including family reunion games?
Games provide the perfect medium for breaking down barriers and involving people who would normally be reticent in joining in a conversation. They create lots of laughter and fun for everyone, whether they choose to actively participate or simply watch the action. Games can be played indoors, outdoors, with equipment or without, and are perfect for when the weather doesn't co-operate.
If you want a reunion that is fondly remembered by everyone then make sure that you include plenty of fun games suitable for young and old alike.
Here at Family Games Treasurehouse we have an amazing selection of fun, free games for you to choose from. We have selected the following games specifically with family reunions in mind. We've put them into different categories to help you make the right selection depending on the ages and the number of people in your group.
