Seize the Summer Challenge Day 8: Game Night

Posted by   + Show Post

Get out the cards and games for some good old fashioned family fun! Take time to plan a game night. Involving your kids in the planning and doing it in advance helps build up anticipation and excitement. Pretend it's a party and plan each detail! Have the kids help plan a menu, choose the games, and even make a playlist. Here are some things to think about:

  • What games will you play?
  • What type of music will you have on in the background?
  • Will you play multiple games throughout the night, or just stick with one?
  • Will your game night have a theme?
  • What snacks and drinks will you serve?

How often do you play games as a family? Have you ever planned a game night in advance?

We don't have a specific game night, but www do enjoy playing games as a family now that the kids are getting a little older and more able to handle it.

we try to do this pretty often! we love all kinds of music, so I just turn on iTunes and set it to 'shuffle.' :)

We usually just stick to one game per night. My youngest is pretty little, so that's about all we can handle.
