My friend Dolly asked for help with her family reunion.
I've talked about it on another page on my Children's Parties tab if you need some background and other ideas.
I came up with some ideas for both activities to keep the kids occupied since everyone arrives at different times, and games to play together once everyone arrives.
We started with Froot Loop necklaces.
I cut some string and put some tape on the ends to help with the stringing. You know, like the aglet on the end of your shoelace? Yes, I looked up what the name of the thing at the end of the shoelace was called.
This is what it looks like done.
With these, we did a Water Balloon Toss. We started at about 5 feet apart and after each successful toss, they were able to take another step apart and toss again!
I had the first member take the sponge and run with it to the empty bin, and the would SQUEEZE it and run back to throw it back into the bin so the next person would transfer as much water as they could.
After about 3 minutes, I called time and we measured which team transferred the MOST water. It was a lot of fun!
The last thing we had planned was a Nature Scavenger hunt. Since we were in a park, I thought this would be perfect.
I printed up the list from a link in Pinterest and then stapled them to paper grocery bags.
Here is the document I created. Break the players in teams and send them off with the bag and a pen or marker to check off the items they find.
So fun to see what they find!
