Olympics for the Aged
Submitted by Sue Fisher
Our family activities are totally involved with Family Reunions in the summer. One idea that really was a lot of fun for everyone was "Olympics for the Aged".
We gathered several pictures of ancestors and laminated them to puzzle blanks. At the reunion, the "Oldsters" put the puzzles together under a stopwatch. They then had to identify the people in the puzzles. They got started on stories about the people in the family pictures, and we learned both good and bad about our ancestors.
Another thing we have had fun with is dressing up as and acting out the exciting life stories of our pioneer ancestors (riding for the pony express, surviving an Indian raid or shipwreck, etc.). We all learn a lot and have fun doing it.
