Its always a good time remembering the good times we had in life. Looking back on what has been, is an encouragement and excitement to for the future and what is to come.

Play hot potato with a camera, this game will be a big hit at your party. Set the camera’s self timer and pass it around the room (or table), each player will point the camera at him-herself (at arm’s length) for a moment and then pass the camera to the next person. Everyone passes the camera until it takes a picture. This is an exciting way to capture memories while you are creating them
