Zoom, It’s Not Just For Work: 30 Fun Activities Families Can Do Online

by Helene Wingens for grownandflown.com

At first we had no idea how we were going to stay connected. Then we discovered that there were, in fact, many ways to
interact even if we could not physically be together. We started Skyping,
FaceTiming and Zooming with friends and family.


We celebrated Zoom birthday celebrations…book clubs….and those ubiquitous happy hours.
But now that we’ve settled into this new reality, we are looking for ways to up the ante.



Fun online activities

Jackbox Games

If you buy them on your computer you can share a screen in Zoom and everybody can play. Each player uses their phone as a “joystick.” There are many games to choose from.


Trivia Games

A lot of people suggested using Kahoot for your trivia games.


Charades

Nothing needed but your imagination. One of the great things about playing charades is that you barely need any materials to get a game going, and you can play with as many people as you want. Just gather your friends together over Zoom, choose your teams, and consult with each other in individual chats to get the rounds going.


Bunco

Here are some directions on how to play Bunco virtually.


Cook/Bake together

Find someone to lead a cooking or baking class. They can send out directions and ingredients beforehand.


Talent Show

Select a panel of judges and then Zoom with others and let everyone give you a taste of their talent.


Card Games

Any of these games can be played with or without Zooming or FaceTiming with the group you’re playing with. If you FaceTime, as I have done while playing, it can feel very close to being in the same room
