If you are planning on your evening in a family circle, you want to ensure that nobody gets bored. Especially now, as we are spending all our time with our loved ones, diverse activities are a must for a delightful evening. A simple way for parents and kids to have fun together is to play some exciting games.
Parents can probably remember how fun their college parties were. Games on campus are some of the best games you will play in your life. Obviously, the list of the best college party games has to include alcoholic beverages, which is why the rules should be adjusted a bit for kids. Here’s a list of games that are easy to recreate and play with the whole family with almost no efforts.
Have you heard of Beer Pong? No way!..You might think. But this game seems to be created to have fun with your kids. Probably, everybody knows the rules: you throw a ball into a glass filled with beer and if you are lucky enough, your opponent will have to either drink the beverage or take up the challenge.
This game is very fun to play with kids. Of course, we won’t use beer. Let your imagination decide which beverage you’d like to prepare for the game. An ideal variant would be to fill the glasses with some hot chocolate and use marshmallows instead of the ball. You shouldn’t stop there! Cranberry Energy Balls are also an amazing option as well as any other small rounded snack.
Bite the Bag
The rules of this game are very simple. You should put a bag on the floor and try to pick it up without using your hands. Those who fail must have a drink. Sounds not really fun for a child, right? There are a few ways how this game can be customized for a family party. One is quite simply: you can bake the bag instead of using the actual one; then the person who bites off the biggest chunk will be announced the winner. The only downside is that the fun will be over soon
Let’s add some DIY to it! Firstly, you can let everyone create their own bag, for example, a unicorn bag for girls or superhero-inspired bags for boys. Biting the same bag may be a bit unsanitary so we suggest filling each individual bag with sweets and candies, different for each participant of the game). The purpose will be to steal as many candies as possible from your opponents’ bags. The one who ends up with the smallest number of candies left will have to do a challenge. You can come up with challenges on the spot or prepare some in advance. One can always revert to edubirdie’s team of writers for hire if some inspiration or help with writing is required. Of course, the more fascinating the challenge will be, the more fun you’ll have!
Attached at the Hip
One of the best games for family reunion! This game will bring you closer to each other. Quite similar to Twister, the rules are that you spin the wheel with different body parts written around it (or simply take out a note from a bag) and become attached to another person by this body part. You should stay attached to your partner while doing a challenge. The audience or your opponents decide what challenges you should be doing.
Of course, the original set of rules suggests having a drink each time a couple fails to stay attached. So the trick here is to adjust this challenge to something you can do with kids. Having a sip of veggie smoothie can be one of the options especially if your children try to avoid broccoli at all costs.
One of the favourite students’ games is also the one you’d be afraid to try while your children will definitely fall for it. All you need is just a set of dice. The players roll the dice and if you roll four, one of the other players should go to the kitchen and make any dish out of four ingredients found at your kitchen. If someone puts together a tremendous treat out of M&M, mustard, salad ranch and chocolate chips, will you dare try it? If not, you’ll need to fulfil the wishes of your opponents. If you are courageous enough, they will need to act upon your wish. Seems fun, huh? The only issue here is you should prepare certain products in advance for this game to avoid indigestion.
This is definitely not the ultimate list of games you can remember from your college years and adjust to play together with your family. Medusa, Drunken Artists, Straight Face and many more can easily be redone for you to have fun with your kids. Enjoy!
