Q:

What are some family reunion ideas?

A:

Quick Answer

If the family reunion is held in a city where most participants live and work, getting everyone together for a day of doing activities together such as a picnic, team sports or visiting an amusement park can be fun. For reunions where people travel from out of town, organizing a group tour to a popular tourist attraction or having a family scavenger hunt are great ways to start things off.

Full Answer

Family reunions are an excellent way for extended family members to reconnect with one another after not having seen each other for long periods of time. Family-Reunion.com suggests having a formal start to the event by gathering everyone together for a welcome address. This is a great way to reacquaint everyone, especially young children, and to update them on the latest family news. It's very important in large families where there have been multiple births, marriages, breakups or deaths over the years. The welcome address is also a perfect time to go over the itinerary for the family reunion so everyone knows what to expect.

Another suggestion is handing out funny awards, such as who traveled the shortest or longest distance to get to the family reunion, who has the most kids, or which family members are the youngest and the oldest.
