Fun Fridays – Who’s who in the Smullin Clan?
I have a memory problem when it comes to remembering my cousins names and also the names of their children. Add that to the fact they come to the Family Reunion every year and it stresses my memory. To help myself, mostly, but also my children to know their cousins better I have come up with a game idea. This year for our Family Olympics new game idea I asked everyone to email me pictures of members of their family as well as the name of every member of their family. (Everyday pictures, not the professional kind.) Using my computer I am making them into a card size memory game. On one card it will have their picture and on the other card it will have their name. The idea of the game is to match the name to the face in the fastest time possible. You will receive a higher score if your team gets a faster time. This works well because you have to start to identify people with names forcing your brain to remember just who that person is. Below is a sample of what I did, it’s easy to do and a fun game to play. You can even do this idea with your ancestors to have your family get to know them better. You can even put a fun fact on the card with their name to learn more about them!
