Expert Advice

With COVID-19 restrictions lifting, it’s time for family reunions again! Here are five fun activity ideas for a family reunion that everyone will enjoy.

Finding a place for the whole family can be challenging, especially when dealing with large gatherings like reunions. It can be tricky to figure out what to do with so many different likes and preferences, so check out five fun activity ideas for a family reunion.

Go to a Game

Whether you want to watch a minor league baseball game, an NFL game, or just one of the kid’s games on a Saturday morning, these are all great options for getting the family together. Also, if you have family coming back in town, they probably haven’t been able to see the local team in a while.

Gameday Tailgate

If buying tickets for the whole family is too much, you don’t need to go to the game to have a good time. Find a parking lot or park nearby, set up a TV (or projector), and make gameday your own. The family will save money but still enjoy all the fun of the game when you throw a winning tailgate party.

Backyard BBQ

As a tried-and-true American past-time, the backyard BBQ is irreplaceable. If you have a bunch of family coming over, just throw some hotdogs and burgers on the grill, and you’ve got the makings of a great time. If you’re looking to spice things up, lawn games like cornholes and horseshoes can make for great bonding or stoke family competition.

Family Olympics

Split up into groups and test each other’s might to determine who deserves a gold medal. With options spanning from individual events like a sack race or group events like a giant 30-person tug-of-war, this is just what you’re looking for if you are a sport-obsessed family.

Boat Day

Even if you don’t own a boat, day rentals are always a great option. Plus, it’s incredibly cost-effective if the whole family chips in on a rental. Nothing compares to a day out on the water, so look around at local lakes and beaches for a rental option that’s right for you.

Now, with these five fun activity ideas for a family reunion, nothing is stopping you and your loved ones from having the time of your lives.
