Fun Games to Play on FaceTime, Skype or Zoom

Fun Games to Play on FaceTime, Skype or Zoom

Maree / Jul 22, 2021

We all love playing with our grandkids, but sometimes distance and other factors mean that we cant be right there with them. Thank goodness for digital connectors like FaceTime, Skype and Zoom but we all want to connect with our grandies in special and memorable ways beyond a “hello” and “how was your day” don’t we.

Next time you find yourself in this situation why not try some of these fun no preparation games!

Eye Spy With My Little Eye is a perfect online game. Just take a look at what you can see in your grandchild’s background, or perhaps its something that you remember from their room, and then the games begin! I Spy With My Little Eye something beginning with….and give the first letter of your chosen object. The kids will be scurrying to find something to show you!

Or perhaps you’d like to play Rainbow Race. On your mark, get set, go! The first person who returns with three items of a predetermined colour is the winner.To make it more challenging, you can create rules such as the objects “must be in this room” or “must be smaller than your hand.”

For older children charades is the perfect answer for some special FaceTime fun – even the littlest ones will have fun with this if you can keep it simple.

And we must never forget the value in book reading to our grandies – and this is the perfect thing to do on FaceTime. Just remember to flip the book and show the kids the image as you read across the page.
