Family Night Idea: Have A Game Night
Family night is a great opportunity to spend quality time together. Why not have a fun night playing games? Here are a few tips that might help your game night go smoothly.
- Set a date. Pick a day of the week that works best with your family. Planning ahead insures everyone will get to join in on the fun.
- Plan to have fun snacks. Whether it is a bowl of chips, or homemade cookies, kids love snacks. Add to your night by having great snacks lined up.
- Have a variety of games. Pull out all your different board games, card games, trivia games, or even video games. If your family is anything like mine, they each like different games. Having a variety will keep everyone happy, and give each person a turn to play their favorite. Let the kids take turns picking and enjoy playing together.
Here are a few of our favorite games:
Monopoly will always be a favorite.
Connect Four has been Elias’ favorite. He loves dropping the pieces in.
If you want to see Mark and I get competitive come play Dutch Blitz with us. We love, love, love this game!
Memory is another favorite with Elias. Or maybe he just likes Elmo.
Enjoy Your Family Night!!!
