Printable family reunion games will help everyone get to know each other better with games like Famly Reunion Bingo and Grandma's Measurements.  Let the laughter (and games) begin!

Update! We are so disappointed that Funsational, our “go to” printable games merchants has shuttered her shop and we cannot find the featured family affair game any where else.  You might try to print it directly from our page — it probably will not be as sharp an image as we normally like, but it might just be “good enough”.  Not to worry though, there are plenty of other family reunion printables on Etsy and of course, there is always Print Games Now!

The Ultimate Lip-Sync Duel >> Party Fun for New Years Eve (or Any Night)!

The Ultimate Lip-Sync Duel

Party Fun for New Years Eve (or Any Night)! 

Up until now we have not featured either karaoke or a lip-sync duel as a “go to”  party activity mostly  because I really, really do not like to perform. In fact, I think my husband's biggest fear is traveling to Korea on business and being dragged into a Karaoke club.

Having said all that, we love this Jimmy Fallon lip-sync duel and have to say, dueling karaoke does look like great fun. I can now definitely see this as a New Years Eve or late night party activity as good as, or maybe even better than, charades. Adding a lip-sync duel to your list of party games will appeal to guests of all ages! Choose your playlist based on your guest list. For example, if you are having lots of children, think about including some songs from Frozen. If your party is for adults only, it might be fine to include songs with lyrics that may not be as appropriate if children were present.Party Fun: Lip Sync Duel, karaoke, party fun, activities, games

What you need:

  1. Memorex MKS-SS2 SingStand 2 Home Karaoke System or any singing machine or karaoke machine with a microphone. (We just checked and you can still get this delivered to your front door before your New Year's Eve celebration begins!)
  2. A diverse playlist
  3. A great group of guests wanting and willing to party – in other words well versed in party etiquette!

Party Hearty!

Board Game Night Party

Board Game Night

Board Game Night Party

In our increasingly digital world, board games might seem like an old-fashioned pastime. But more and more people are turning to board games as a hobby. These days, board games are more than just the classic Monopoly, Clue, and Connect 4. European-style games are a class of tabletop games that generally have simple rules, short to medium playing times (no five hour Monopoly marathons here!) and lots of social interaction. These kinds of games have become incredibly trendy: board game cafes have opened up all over the world! We think that these games can be a great way to connect with family and friends. So why not change up your usual Friday night entertainment and throw a casual board game night party?

Fair warning: some of the games on this list can be played with kids, but some of them are grown-ups only! For games for all ages, check out our Family Game Night post.

Kids Community Service Activity – Clip Coupons for Coupons Help!

Coupons Help Fight Hunger

We are so excited to introduce our visitors to Coupons Help, a non-profit organization started by a 10 year old thoughtful, inspired, creative angel.  Basically, Chloe was at a family dinner when a friend of her father's mentioned that the food pantry he worked with could use coupons in addition to food to help those in need purchase food and essentials. Chloe began collecting coupons from the Sunday paper that would have otherwise been thrown away and mailed them to the shelter. It made a difference and so she thought she would build a website and try to collect coupons from people all over the world, especially kids like her. Chloe's goal is to get 3,000 coupons by the end of year!  We are here to support her in her efforts.
