- Blindfolded Drawing
The Blindfolded Drawing challenge is perfect for people of all ages and only requires some paper and pencils.

If you’re keeping score, you can judge either by guesses or by drawings.
2. Would You Rather
Would You Rather is a classic family-friendly game that can be adapted to suit any age group. The game's rules are simple: family members would take turns asking a question that starts with “Would you rather…” and compare two options, then let each person decide their answers. The questions could be anything ranging from serious questions to silly or even gross. Check out our article on would you rather kids questions or would you rather questions for couples.
3. Guess The Song
If your family members are music lovers, Guess the Song is a great activity to spend time as a family. In each round, one person would be responsible for playing the music and keeping score while the others guess. Play a snippet of a song and have the rest of the family guess the title and the artist of the song. At the end of each round, the person with the most correct guesses would be the winner.
4. Seven-Second Challenge
The Seven-Second Challenge is a fun, fast-paced challenge that’s perfect for family game night. The point of this challenge is to give each person a task they must complete in only seven seconds. For example, you could ask someone to change their hairstyle, do ten push-ups, sing the alphabet song backward, or name all the planets in our solar system. This game is perfect to get everyone out of their seats and have a good time.
5. Blindfolded Food Tasting
Are your family members adventurous eaters? Then, the Blindfolded Food Tasting Challenge can be a fun way to get your family to try new things. Blindfold one person and give them random foods to taste without telling them what they are, then guess the name of the food. If you’re keeping score, give a point for each correct guess. Be sure to use different flavors and textures of food to make it interesting.
Whether you’re looking for something creative, competitive, or just plain silly, these five challenges are excellent activities to do at home to have fun as a family. So why not gather the family and give these a try?
