Funstuff: Family Story Quiz

Preparation

  1. Think of four types of stories, like Funny, Childhood, Spiritual, or Vacations. Write each category on a piece of paper and tape it on a wall.

  2. Find four family stories for each category. Ask your family for help.

  3. Think of short clues for each story and write them on pieces of paper.

  4. Write 100, 200, 300, or 400 points on the other side of the paper. Tape the clues under the categories.

How to Play

  1. Divide players into two teams. Whoever wrote the clues is the leader.

  2. The first team picks a category and number, like “Funny, for 200.”

  3. The leader takes off the number and reads the clue. If the team can tell the story that matches the clue, they get the points!

  4. If they don’t know the story, the leader tells the story but leaves out a detail, like where it happened or who it’s about. If the team can guess the missing detail, they get half the points.

  5. The next team picks a clue and plays. After all the clues are picked, the team with the most points wins!
