The key to a successful family relationship are planning and preparing. Family reunion offers the opportunity to gather family members from far and wide, renew old relationships, and meet other family members you may not know.
Here are some unique ways to get your family together and not to forget it so much!!
Break the Block
It’s fair to admit that a few hours of family reunion can sometimes be difficult, especially for newcomers or never having been together in a very long time or before. Throw away the awkwardness with the conversation starters such as open-ended, non-routine, professional or relevant to, and get the conversations flowing.
Photographs are the base of our memories. Family reunion is the biggest stage for all the family members to explore themselves and create an energetic atmosphere. Create memories so as to remember each and every moment even in the future.
Kisme Kitna Hai Dum!!
Every family member has some kind of talent; try to explore each one of them. Have each person showcase talent in front of the group, like singing, magic tricks, or dancing.
Secret cooking recipes
It’s obvious everyone will get hungry after celebrating a lot. So why to leave cooking aside! Another way to combine fun is to ask family members to show their secret recipe on the table and after deciding whose dish is the best by taking votes, maybe the winner gets a fun prize!!
Don’t Miss Our Ancestors
How can we forget the past because of which we are celebrating the future!! A family celebration is incomplete without the topic of our ancestors. Live the past again with old photos and memories sitting with all your family members and thanking them for giving us the opportunity to live the present.
The Show is On!
Why to miss the entertainment factor!! Once in a blue moon this happens where every family member is present so let’s make a full use of it. Play some movie with a box of popcorn in the hands of every family member where the kids will be excited to eat different flavored popcorn rather than watching a movie!!
Memories warm you up from inside!
Members talk about 15 minutes each with one of our writers to share a memory. If needed, the writer helps to generate ideas with prompts. It results in a special book with photos and stories that will bring the reunion back to life for many years to come.
Performing role plays and skits
Create or think of some stories related to your family. If someone is not good in acting, they can model clothing and other gear from that time frame. An alternative is to come up with skits about things that happened since the last time you saw your family.
Long Distance Calls
Don’t forget about the family members who could not attend the family reunion due some other scheduling conflicts or those who are in abroad. Make a surprise group call to those members where they also feel a part of the reunion.
If All is Well then End is Well!
A great way to end your reunion with your family with family superlatives or prizes! They can also serve as reminders of family reunions. Thanksgiving is the right time for you to skip your family history and genealogy research.
