Any ideas? The board games we like (ours are the older children) won't appeal to the little ones.
I don't really want them on the Wii etc the whole time. Any good party games which will appear to all age groups? My mind has gone blank!

Sardines obviously. Wouldn't be much fun on your own smile

It's a huge age range but what about Pictionary in teams? (You draw what is written on the card and the other team guesses.) Perhaps have a family film planned they can all watch? Elf or Shrek or similar.

Bingo, complete with prizes, has kept our dc and cousins of a similar age occupied.

That sticker game on your head? Running around outside for some nebulous reason until they are all exhausted? Sleeping lions for six hours or so?

My one is very happy to play a watered down version of monopoly. Nerf gun wars with Very Strict Boundaries about where and when someone is allowed to shoot?

Snap? <clutching at straws>

Head bands - you can make your own with post it notes. Charades - put a load of disney movies/classic children's books into a hat and people take turns - these have gone down well with our family over Christmas ages from 5 to 62 which includes 4 teenagers

Thanks all! It's a difficult age range, will definitely try some of these.
