  • Start off a family meeting, asking everyone what they want to do on Family Nights....than schedule it and have fun!!


    We do movies, have popcorn (Target had in their dollar section those red/white popcorn containers), more  junk food, turn off the lights and enjoy 2 or 3 movies.


    Game night is fun too

  • Start now, especially while the 4 years old are young. We have family night here on Fridays and Saturdays. We play board games, or go out to eat and a movie. The kids really enjoy it.

  • We have family night every Saturday night. Our kids are 4, 5, & 11 but we started this when the youngest one was just a little over 1. We try to do things that the whole family would have fun with. We have done goofy arts and crafts (the younger ones really got into this) to playing a silly game on the Wii (aimed more towards our oldest but everybody loved it). They really enjoy movie night though because the kids all pick a movie and then we all sit and watch it piled together in the floor or on the couch. Start soon because you are really going to enjoy it.

  • My kids and I have board-game night on Saturday evenings. Occasionally, we have it on Sunday afternoons, due to sport practices or games the day before. We sometimes invite friends over to play, too. We also make a "buffet" for game night with munchies everyone likes. We just keep it simple, but fun. Hope you and your family will enjoy your time together also. Remember, to keep it fun and stress free so you will want to continue with the event.

  • We collect those soft advertisement magnets and we play fridge darts with them. The kids love it and we have fun too. Of course we might be weird because we even sometime take off our shoes and just skate across the hardwood floors in our socks. It is fun!
