When Guests Come to Visit

Murphy & Sico Wall Beds Make Space More Useable and Functional

Where are you going to put the occasional guests who come to visit? Many people don’t have enough space for a dedicated guest room.  Having a spare bedroom that is used only when guests come to stay, can render that space useless for anything else when no one is visiting. Instead of wasting that space, why not make the rooms in your home more multi-functional?  You could have a craft room, home office or even a library/sitting room that is used year-round, add a Built-in Murphy Wall Bed and…. Ta da!  It now simply and easily doubles as a guest room when you need it.  A Murphy bed takes up little space when not in use; It is easy to pull out and put back up when it’s not needed, and comes in any size.  In fact, because they are so cleverly designed, you’d never even suspect it’s there when you’re not using it. Classy Closets offers many different customized options that will make every inch of space in your home beautiful and efficient.  With a Murphy bed, your home could be as efficient as you are… well almost.

Family Friendly Fun Summer Games & Activities

Sometimes people only see some of their family members a few times a year. It’s fun to play games as an ice breaker to get to know each other better. Or another game would be to see which couple knows their partner the best by asking funny questions. One year at Lake Powell we played a couple’s game. My little brother Josh, wasn’t in a relationship and neither was my cousin Tyler. They were best friends (since forever) so they paired up. It was funny because they ended up winning “the best couple” prize. It was hilarious to hear all the couple’s answers for each of the questions.

My mom always has puzzles, coloring books, word searches, board games and a few outdoor games always set up outside and ready to go so that nobody gets bored. People can do a little of everything whenever they feel like it. I love relaxing and coloring next to my grandma while the rest of the family sits and does a puzzle.  Water Fights are always popular in the heat of summer and of course roasting Marshmallows and singing round a campfire at the end of the day always brings a family closer.

Games and Activities for a Family Get Together

Here’s a list of 12 Favorites

ONE

Frisbee Golf with a Twist – Frisbee golf is such a fun sport to play. Make it super unique by creating your own ‘course’, split the family into teams, and at each ‘hole’ have a fun, family fact, trivia question, or mind game for each small group to complete before moving on to the next hole. Instead of keeping score, the fun becomes learning more about your family and building friendships. Grab these great frisbee golf discs while you’re at it!

TWO

Glow Lawn Bowling– I cannot even believe how fun this looks! It’s so simple. Fill up some old plastic bottles with water and food coloring and create your own mini bowling alley! Make your own bowling game in the dark using glow sticks! Any participant will love the added challenge of playing in the dark!

THREE

Who Am I? – This would be so fun!! Write the names of everyone at the reunion and drop them in a hat. Have each player draw a name and tape it to someone else’s forehead — don’t let them see! Go around and ask other participants yes-or-no questions (“Do I have kids?” “Am I taller than you?”) until everyone figures out whose name is taped to his or her forehead.

FOUR

Ping Pong Toss – Time for some carnival games… set up plastic cups (filled slightly with water), in a formation. Write different point values on the front and have a competition to see who can bounce ping pong balls into the cups and get the most points. You might be surprised to see who ends up being the winner!

FIVE

Hot Potato Camera Game – This is just like the game hot potato, but with an awesome twist! Get a camera that has a timer on it. Pass it around the group, with each person having to hold it up at arms length (as if they were going to take a selfie). Whomever is holding the camera when it actually takes the pic is out of the game! Be careful not to drop the camera – you might want to sit on the ground to minimize damage!

SIX

Olympic Yard Games – Turn up the competition with a round of Summer Lawn Olympics. Set up games like Corn Hole, Ladder Ball, Jenga, Twister, Bocce Ball, and Kubb. Make sure to grab awards to go with the medals for the winners!

SEVEN

Minute to Win It – If you want some good laughs, plan some minute to win it challenges like the snack toss and face the cookie or junk in the trunk! Getting a little silly and embarrassing yourself in front of everyone is one of the best ways to have fun and make memories. PLUS, the Divas have you covered with printable Win it in a Minute Games for almost any holiday or occasion!

EIGHT

Decorate for a Special Meal – For a special family dinner, have the kids work together to decorate a tablecloth. Use butcher paper, crayons, markers, stamps, and stickers to make a fun display that follows your Reunion theme, or whatever strikes their fancy! Record memories, draw pictures, write notes… and don’t forget to take pictures.

NINE

Get to Know You Bingo – If your family needs to get re-acquainted after being away from each other for so long, this fun game of bingo will get everyone running around asking all of the IMPORTANT questions like: who loves broccoli and who is brave enough to go skydiving!

TEN

Who’s Who Photo Game – Have everyone send in a baby pic before getting to the reunion. Then, have a competition to see who can guess who is in each picture! Fun and easy activity for your reunion!

ELEVEN

How cute are these family reunion T-shirts! You can have custom t-shirts made to hand out to everyone.  My family always get hoodies and t-shirts made for our family vacations. They are so cute and they make it easy to spot the rest of the family if you are out in big crowds somewhere. It’s also cute to have everyone put them on and take a family photo. It would be so fun to have these made in a few different colors. You could arrange who gets which colors by immediate family, boys and girls or even age groups.
