A happy family playing board games

Due to recent events, many people have found themselves spending more time at home than in the past. When you have young kids, it can be tough to find creative ways to keep them entertained day in, day out. We’re here to help! Read our list of fun family-friendly activities for all ages.

6 Family Fun Night Ideas

  1. Camp out: While many people are still wary to want to venture to campgrounds, that doesn’t mean camping is out! Whether it’s in your living room or backyard, set up a little campsite. If your camping indoors, consider using a S’mores maker to make S’mores. If you’re camping outside, consider having a bonfire and playing outdoor games!
  2. Board game night: Take a break from the movie marathon for a board game night! Task everyone to pick out their favorite games and then vote on the one you want to play. A board game night is not only entertaining, it’s also fun!
  3. Cook together: Another great family activity is cooking together. Whether it’s making a dessert, a snack or a full three-course meal, consider letting your kids choose one item to make.
  4. Do a craft night: If you’re feeling creative, opt for a craft night! Depending on the age of your kids, a craft night may look a little different. For younger kids, get a new coloring book for them to color in. For older kids, have them decorate a sign or some sort of décor for their room.
  5. Costume night: Every year we spend money on Halloween costumes only to be able to wear them one night. Get more use out of them by doing a Halloween costume night! Let your kids get all dressed up in their favorite costumes and do a costume show.
  6. LEGO® building contest: Put your competitive spirit to action with a LEGO® building contest! Once everyone is done building their masterpieces, have one person judge who is the winner.
