We know family reunions can be overwhelming to plan, especially virtually, so we have taken all the hard work out and have created a planner and activities booklet to help you prepare for a virtual family reunion, give you tons of ideas that you can craft and configure according to your family’s interests, time constraints, and even current geographical locations. All activities are versatile and executable virtually, in person, or both.
