Celebrate Grandparents Day with Wii!
Mark your calendars for September 12, 2010…Grandparents Day is just around the corner.
It’s easy to throw a party to celebrate – all you need is your Wii (and your grandparents). Follow these simple steps to throw a Grandparents Day party the whole family can enjoy!
Step 1: Send Out Invites
Let your grandparents know you want to celebrate their special day by inviting the whole family.
Step 2: Pick Teams
Create teams by mixing up family members – will it be grandkids and grandparents vs. mom and dad, or an inter-generational grudge match?
Step 3: Select Activities That Get Your Family on Their Feet
One of the best things about Wii is that it comes with the famous Wii Sports and Wii Sports Resort games. Your family will have dozens of options to choose from – right out of the box!
Whether you choose a showdown tournament in Wii Sports bowling, a set of epic Wii Sports Resort Swordplay duels or a pickup game of Wii Sports Resort basketball, there will be something for everyone to enjoy. To be extra ambitious, play a “family decathlon” of activities, so every member has a chance to shine.
Step 4: Give Away Prizes
Take the competition up a notch by making your own special prizes, like “golden tickets” good for:
“Trip to the zoo with Grandma and Grandpa”
“Baseball game with Grandpa”
“Movie for two with Grandma”
Step 5: Pick a Movie and Relax with the Family
Now that the whole family has battled it out, reward yourselves by kicking back with a movie everyone can enjoy. Watch any of thousands of movies instantly with Netflix on your Wii.
