When I was a kid, my parents would take us outside to play sticks and stones. We would throw sticks at each other and try to dodge them. That was the highlight of the day for me. Now that I’m older, we don’t play as much stick and stones anymore but we still like playing games together as a family. These five activities will bring people of all ages together:
Family charades is a classic game that can be played with a family of all ages. For this game, you will need to make up a list of words and assign each person in your family an individual word to act out. Give each person enough time to prepare for their part, and then begin playing!
This game can also be played as a team game by putting two or three players against one another on opposing teams. In this case you could assign different categories such as movies, TV shows or even songs for each player to act out within their category (for example: “characters from Disney’s Aladdin”).
Family game night
Family game night is a great way to spend time with family members of all ages. You can play games in a group or one-on-one, indoors or outdoors, and even online!
If you have lots of children in your family and they’re looking for something to do together, this activity might be perfect for you. If not, it’s still fun regardless!
Hide and seek
If you’re looking for a fun activity that will bring people of all ages together, hide and seek is the perfect choice! You can play this game with as many people as you have on hand.
It’s also an excellent way to get some exercise in your day. The more players who are involved, the more running around there’ll be—which means that everyone will be getting their heart rate up and burning calories by the end of the game (whether they win or lose).
Even better: playing hide and seek lets you learn about your neighborhood in a whole new way. While you’re running around looking for others’ hiding places, it’s important not only to keep one eye out for potential hiding spots but also to pay attention to landmarks like trees or street signs so that when it comes time for them to start searching again they can use those same landmarks as starting points while they search through unfamiliar territory.

Racing is one of the most fun and exciting games for all ages. It can be played indoors or outdoors, with any number of people, and on any number of items.
Here are some tips for racing with kids:
- Choose a game that’s engaging but easy to learn.
- A game should allow players to move at their own pace, so keep it simple!
- Set up a course using markers or tokens that everyone can see – this will help each player know where they stand in relation to other racers (and encourage them not to give up).
These games are easy and you can play them in an hour or less.
