Family Reunion GamesFamily reunions are exciting and fun, but, in many cases, the experience is cross-generational and not quite as engaging as it should be based on the love in the room. From awkward silences to withdrawn kids that would rather text away on mobiles in a corner, family reunions can quickly become a bore for some, and frustrating for those looking for more unity.

One way to solve the problem is to get everyone to partake in a game. The right game will be enjoyed by both kids and adults. Before the start of the games it can be a good idea to organise prizes for winners and runners up to make the game competitive/purposeful. The best prizes are often special holiday baking or some other edible treat.
