My wife is finally going to meet my family. Problem, they don't speak English, She doesn't speak Russian. What are good non speech dependent fun activities we can all do?

So we are flying to see my family for the first time, and there is a speech/communication barrier.
I mean, I will be happy to be the translator between the sides but were wondering what creative activities we can all do where speech is not as important? We are staying with the family for a solid month, so would love to have a fun, non awkward/boring visit.
So far, I was thinking about:
* Watching movies (Russian movies with English subs, and English movies with Russian subs)
* Ballet Shows?
* Playing Chess
* Playing Puzzles or Jigsaws
* Playing card games
* Cooking together a ton each day
* Going to museums
* Mushroom gathering?
* Walks in the park?
Any other family activities where talking with each other are not on the frontline?
Thanks and balshoya spasibo!
