Payback pockets are a fun way to pay back family members for the difference they have made in your life. Payback pockets are a fun way to “pay back” your family for the difference they have made in your life- way of showing appreciation and a way of saying thanks.
Our Payback pockets were labeled in fun way using money terms such as Steve’s Sawbucks, Ann’s Ante and Lynn’s Loot.
Set up a writing “station” and stock it with stationary, stickers, markers and colored paper. Having fun stickers and stationary encourages family members to write notes.
You don’t need to set aside any time for note writing during your reunion. Family members will find their own time to write whether it’s during some reunion downtime or during an activity they may not wish to participate in.
The little ones in our family had fun writing notes, well, actually drawing pictures, and they loved using the markers and stickers.
The reunion planners used the pockets as a way of delivering special treats and surprises during our reunion. One day each Big Six received crackers, chocolate and marshmallows for S’mores around the campfire. Another day bouquet of lollypops was delivered to each pocket.
