Family "Food and Fun" Night

favorite snack


Ask everyone to write down one favorite snack item on a piece of paper (or whisper in your ear). It's important that no one knows what the others choose (except you if necessary). On Family Night be sure that each person's snack item is represented for consumption and fun! Before you begin playing the "QUESTIONS" game, have everyone guess who they think chose which snack.

Ages 4-6

Play the Questions Game with family members. Take turns asking questions to get to know your family better. After the game, have each person share a question they would like to ask God if He were playing the game with you. You may want to write down the questions they would ask and discover the answers as you do the Family Adventures together!

Ages 7-10

Play the Questions Game with family members. You may also choose to borrow or purchase the games, "Whoonu" or "Apples to Apples." Take turns asking questions.

God Is a Personal Spirit: Questions Game

(Ages 4-10)

Instructions: The purpose of this game is to get to know one another better. You may choose to write these questions on separate 3x5 cards, mix them up, and allow each family member to draw a question when it is their turn. If you prefer, you may go in order according to the numbers on the card rather than making separate cards.

Begin by allowing the youngest member to draw a question first. Read the question aloud and have everyone write down how they think the youngest would answer the question. The youngest will tell everyone what his/her answer to the question is and then everyone will share what they wrote down. Each person who guesses correctly receives one point.

Continue playing by going around in a circle until everyone has had a turn to draw a card. Tally each person's points. The person with the most points wins.
