  2. Everyone is having fun.

  3. Love this and cannot wait for the giggle fest to begin…what fun and thank you for sharing.

    1. We have an annual cousins gathering on my husbands side. They are all over 80! This year we are having it on the 12th day of christmas, Jan 5, to not compete with their family gatherings. I found a game on line using the premise of name that tune of christmas hymns and wrapped Dollar store gifts! After the guess is over each time guests are asked to either pass their gift left or right a certain number of places or trade with the person next to them, etc. Its from Play Party Plan}Make Life Fun. And no one needs to jump up and move or steal. Lol.
      Then as a parting gift I found jar candles called Frankensense & Myrrh in honor of the next day is Epiphany. I’m looking forward to playing this game.

  4. Our family was blessed to be on tour with our eldest two boys this December and these games were the PERFECT way to have some “non plugged in” time together in a tiny hotel room that we crammed six of us into! What a blessing!!! Thank you so much for sharing!!!

  5. Insanely fun tonight. Whipped cream one was “the funnest” the kids said though I loved watching kisses throwing the most. Thank you. I love your blog and am blessed to have your wisdom in my life

  6. Thanks for the ideas! Played many of these with our extended family tonight. In fact, hours later some of the cousins are still building bell towers/ trees!

  7. I love these ideas!! I have played a game where there’s a tic-tac-toe board made from masking tape on a table. Two players compete at a time to flip the cups from being upside down to standing upright by flicking it up from the edge of the table. When the cup stands up right they add it to the tic-tac-toe board in one of the available spaces. If it falls they set it back at edge and tries again until successful. We play by having a double elimination bracket. It’s always so much fun and we gather around and cheer each other on. In the end there’s a prize, but ultimately everyone has a good time.

    1. I forgot to mention that the first to get three in a row on the tic-tac-toe board wins the round. The loser is then replaced by the next challenger.
