We gather as a family a lot during the time between Thanksgiving and New Year's. It's usually lots of fun, and we spend most of the time eating, drinking and catching up. But, it's nice to have a game to play...something to get the whole crowd involved.
This year at Thanksgiving, we played Photo Scavenger Hunt!
Everyone can play! Choose random things around your house, pick likely party activities (like someone drinking something in the kitchen), make a list, and choose a central person to report to (this is a great job for a Grandma who's not able to get around like she used to).
Here's what was on our list:
- A Cat
- A Straw
-Someone's ear (other than your team mate's)
- A Sink
-A Trash Can
- A Tree
-Someone's nose (other than your team mate's)
- A leaf
- Someone in the kitchen
-A blade of grass
-A drink with ice cubes
- A pair of shoes
-You and your team mates making serious faces
- The pen that you are crossing things off with
- A TV
- Something yellow
- A lego ship built out of at least 10 lego bricks
- Your hand making a heart
Have everyone report to Grandma (or whoever is designated) and then the pictures can be reviewed and "qualified". The winner gets a prize (a box of chocolates, a bottle of wine, base the item on your crowd).
Everyone has a camera at gatherings, and cell phones are great for taking photos too. This is an easy and fun game to get the crowd energized, and ready to have fun!
