Take a bag of M&M’s or Skittles candy and tell everyone to grab a handful…or specify a number (I prefer this if you have a large group so it doesn’t take so long- I suggest each family member take 4 or 5 candies) You might also choose to split up in smaller groups such as children under 12, 12 and over, young adults etc. if you have a larger group such as a family reunion.
Assign a different meaning to each color, blue= family, green=hobbies, yellow=animals, brown= work or school etc. Participants must tell one thing about themselves for how many candies they have in their hands using the colors as their guide. They may also eat them as they share their information. (“Blue…I have two sisters.”, then eats the candy. “Yellow…I have a dog named Kodi.”, and eats the candy etc.)If you have two or more of the same color you have to tell one thing per candy regardless the color.
This is a good ice breaker because you can play it as soon as your party is supposed to start and those that come a little late can participate when they arrive.

Let your guests choose a game they would like to play and when everyone has made their game choice set a timer for 15 minutes and let the fun begin.

This is a great way to mix up family members at your family reunion and help them to get to know each other a little better.
According to a Hasbro press release, a 1999 article in Psychology Today asserted that you can learn more about someone by playing a game than going on 10 dates. And you can learn more about yourself by playing a game than you can from several therapy sessions.
