  • Together plan what you are going to have for supper and have everyone involved in making it. Decide together what you would like to do. Play board games-cards, play in the yard, go for a walk, go swimming, biking, hiking, boating, soccer, baseball-catch, football, plant a garden-and work together to keep it going, bake, volunteer at a shelter-hospital-vet-long term care.

  • I like QandA's idea of planning and cooking dinner together.

    I think I would want each family night to be planned by a different person and each night we eat, play, do, watch what ever that family member wants to eat, play, do watch. Let each person's choices shine.

  • Board or card games most likely. We are all into games. We also have bowling competitions on the Wii.

  • We make popcorn and play games. Not usually cards. Mostly board games.

  • There are some petty hilarious games to play. Taboo, Guesstures, Mad Gab, plus clssic favorites like Pictionary, Life, and Monopoly. It all depends on the ages of the kis though. Popping popcorn and waching a movie, trying out crafty projects, baking new recipes... I can't wait until my kis are both old enough to do this kind of stuff!

  • We'd have dinner together and TALK. Something we don't do enough of lately. We'd also probably play a game or two, maybe watch a movie... just depends what everyone is in the mood to do.

  • sometimes we do a movie night get different candies popcorn and the new movie of the week. other times we bake cookies or cupcakes, we have game night where we do scavenger hunts ( the kids love them) on family night we usually order out so its less of a mess to clean and we get paper plates and cups lol

  • Mines would be a very nice dinner, where we all sat sown at the table and eat togther. Then we wuld have a movie selection that someone different gets to choose a new movie every week. Then have a nice snack together. But we do that often though ecept we go out to eat n go to the movies instead of being at home.

  • - Cook something as a family (like pizza) or BBQ in the back yard & hang out.
    - Movie Night with popcorn/snack.
    - Board Games or Kinects on the Xbox.
    - With summer around the corner playing outside, in the pool. smores in the small pit. backyard camping.
