Keeping it Fun! Play time

One of the things that we have discovered with our family and you may have learned with your own is that most kids love to play games.

One of the most recent games that we added last year was the family edition of Apples to Apples and the kids, all six of them 8-18, enjoyed playing it once they figured it out. So, for Easter we are hoping to wrangle the Bible Edition for the family. (ssshhh! The kids don't know yet.)

Expand your "core" knowledge of Christian history with this hilarious, award-winning game! Apples to Apples, Bible Edition brings the award winning card and party game, Apples to Apples, to the Christian community. Players will delight in the clever comparisons while expanding their knowledge of the Bible. Comparing people, places, things, and events, players match their cards with the judge's. The closest match wins the round. But you've got to be fast, because if your card is the last one on the table, you lose! Inside you'll find 432 Red Apple cards, 144 Green Apple cards, 2 card trays and quick play rules. Games are fast--about 20 to 30 minutes per game, and it's an easy game to learn. Recommended for 4 to 10 players, ages 9 and up.

With our family as large as it is, we try to have a special gift at Easter but we do not typically get all of the kids an Easter basket, we do live frugally. With our desire to live for the Lord and to raise our family in a God centered home this game looks to be a welcome addition.

This is of course in addition to focusing on why we celebrate Easter, or better suited Resurrection Sunday.

How do you have fun with your family? Do you have special traditions?

Do you have a varying ages that you like to include together when looking for a family game? What works for you?
