Games Can Complement Easter Traditions -- Fostering Stronger Family Connections

SPOKANE, WA--(Marketwire - March 11, 2010) -  On Easter, when the eggs have been found, there's often still a house of adults and children asking, "Now what?" According to Funsational, Inc., (www.funsationalshoppe.com) the world's most prolific party game developer, that's when smart families break out the games. Game playing is a perfect opportunity to maximize family bonding time. It's good when families spend time together, but it's exponentially better when families connect, solve problems, and laugh together, cultivating the multigenerational bonds that happen through shared experiences involving laughter. 

Selecting ready-made party games -- word games, trivia, bingo, and others -- make it easy to build in this new low-cost tradition. Three games for a three-hour get-together is just about right -- an ice-breaker plus a couple others get everyone laughing, and still allows time to eat and mingle. With printable games, hosts select a game online, purchase it and print out their selections from their home printer -- and they may print as many copies of the game as they need for the next 60 days. Most games cost $6.99 each. A couple of the most fun Easter games for mixed-age groups can be found at www.eastergamesatoz.com:

  • Easter Picture Bingo -- It's a classic game of bingo, but cards squares are either pre-filled with Easter items or they can be personalized. A game card generator produces a different Easter Bingo Card for each guest -- up to 200 players! This game delights non-readers, grandparents and everyone in between.
  • Candy Rhyme Time -- This brain-teaser rhyming game tests your knowledge and skill when it comes to sweets. Players race to answer a clue, and then match a rhyming candy to it. It's not as easy as it sounds, but players are always laughing within the first few minutes.

Another game resource, The Funsational Shoppe, (www.funsational.com) offers custom illustrated games that can also be personalized. The games are printed and shipped to your door or the nearest FedEx Office Centersm (formerly FedEx Kinko'ssm) in as little as three hours. One game from the Funsational Easter collection, Spring Flowers, quizzes players on their knowledge of the historical meaning given to flowers.

"Children never get tired of the positive attention they get while playing games with the different generations of the family. So, while Easter egg hunts are an undeniably wonderful holiday tradition, another new tradition, playing Easter games, benefits the whole family in many ways," said Heather Pieczonka, president and chief strategist of Funsational Inc.
