Unplug and Enjoy! Family Fun Nights

By Leslie Moore

If your home is like many, meaning everyone spends a lot of time in front of a screen, then you might want to surprise the kids or grandkids with some old and new games that will keep everyone involved.

Put the cell phones in a basket and get ready to have fun!

Bean Boozled

This is a hilarious and funny game that uses Jelly Belly jellybeans and a spinner. You’ll never know if you’ll be eating a strawberry jellybean or one that tastes like moldy cheese. (Trust me, the kids will love this!)


This classic game never loses its appeal and has recently been updated! Older kids will love trying to give clues without using any of the “taboo” words.

Pie Face!

If you’ve never played Pie Face, get ready to laugh – especially at yourself if you get the “pie” in your face. Score points every time you turn the handle without getting splatted!


Another classic that is fun for the entire family. Divide your group into teams and get ready to race against the clock!


If you have little ones, this classic game is perfect. Great forpreschoolers and the action is quick, fun and keeps their attention.

Go Fish and Old Maid are simple card games that provide hours of fun. Look for decks with colorful illustrations rather than print, making it easy for everyone to play.

Checkers is a classic game that grandparents can easily teach kids.
