FAMILY NIGHT IDEAS

We try to do Family Night every Friday. However, it is getting to be same ol', same ol' (movie, dinner/order pizza, video games...). My son is 17, Aspergers and I have a 3 yr old daughter. So it has to be something we all enjoy and not expensive. I am looking for more creative ideas...

It's not creative, but do you ever play boardgames? You could help your 3 yr old if needed

indoor camping? cooking/baking night? flash light tag outside (when the weather gets nice) candy hunts (hide candy all over the house, turn off the lights, use flashlights to find them. Treasure hunt. Scavenger hunt...

Yes we have maxed that out too and with the age gap between those 2 its hard to get past Go Fish & weve tried Uno. She did OK but she got bored.

I was going to suggest bowling. We found out that our boys like it.
