My kids are so far apart that I have to do seperate stuff with them. My older ones are 16, 18 and 21. We like going to the movies, out for coffee, hanging out and talking etc.. The little ones are 5 and 9 (twins) with them, we like going to the park for picnics, doing arts at home, dancing around etc.. The 12yo and almost old enough to do stuff with the older ones but still young enough to play with the little ones!
This we all do together are movie nights at home, trips and baking!
Your family is so big I think it would be unreasonable to think you would be able to do much together. Eating dinner at the table is important for families. It would be nice to have a night that everyone was expected to be home for family dinner. We always went to my grandparents and had dinner on Sun. and that was special. Maybe one weekend a month you could do something special like go to a state park for the day. Something different every month.
