Designing a family game night for all ages can be a real trick. The interests and abilities of a 4 year old, for instance, are way different from that of an 8 year old or a teen. Since this is a FAMILY game night, we want everyone to participate and have a good time.
Encourage players to let all team members participate–little ones can get left in the dust when highly competitive older siblings want to win bad enough.
- Two identical puzzles (24 pieces)*
- Questions or Tasks written out on slips of paper
- Plastic fillable eggs*
PUZZLES: Have a table ready where the puzzles will be put together. Keep the box close by so that players can see what the puzzle will look like. *You can find great, inexpensive puzzles and plastic eggs at Dollar Tree!
TEAMS: Set up teams. Teams should be a mixture of age groups.
QUESTIONS: Each egg will hold a trivia question to be answered, or a task to be done. Mark them for the age of the person to answer it. (Young Child – Child – Teen or -Adult) The host/hostess moderator has the answers to all of the questions.
RULES: Everyone hunts for eggs as a team. When they get an egg, bring it to the host/hostess who reads the question aloud. A team member answers the question. When a question is answered correctly, the team earns a puzzle piece for their puzzle. Once all of the clues have been found and the puzzle pieces awarded, the team puts their puzzle together. Whoever’s puzzle is completed first wins!
