Do You Know Your Siblings? a Fun Game for Family Night

Do you guys remember playing "Do you love your neighbor?"  I must admit that I never played that until I entered the singles wards and started mixing from people out West.  We never really played it here in the East growing up.

Anyway, yesterday before church I decided we'd play "Do you know your siblings," as a way to pass the time reverently before church started.

I wrote a list of "favorites" on a piece of paper for each child and hung them up. (Including one for mom and dad!) We took turns writing down our best guesses for each other--things like favorite color, food, hobby, etc.

At the end of the list, we wrote down what we thought the person's talents and gifts were and also something we like about that person.

Later on, during our Family Council, we went over the answers. 

Since we each wrote in a different colored marker, we kept track of our correct answers to see who knew the most about the other family members. 

It was a lot of fun and yielded plenty of laughter. And I think each person enjoyed being in the spotlight for a few minutes. Save the answers in a scrapbook or journal for a fun family history document to look back on some day.

Just an idea for a Sunday or FHE tonight!

I am participating in a Family History Challenge this month!  Click here to read more posts about family history and Easter!


  1. This sounds like a really fun idea to do on my missionary son's birthday that's coming up, even though he won't be here to play with us. I'll get his answers via email. :)

  2. I really like this idea and plan to use it at our family reunion this summer. Thanks!


  3. great idea I'll pass it on to my son Daniel.
