Do you ever find yourself lacking inspiration or repeating the same actions? There are many inexpensive alternatives that might help your family become closer, whether you want to stay in and cuddle up at home or take the whole family outside. Children will always remember nights like these from their upbringing.
Camp indoors or outdoors
Everyone enjoys camping, and it can be simple if you just set up a tent on your lawn or living room. In this manner, indoor plumbing is accessible. A campfire may sound like a lot of fun, but it’s not necessarily practical or safe. Therefore, you can cook s’mores inside, grab some popcorn, and unwind with your partner rather than burning marshmallows over an open flame. Gather your sleeping bags, candles, spooky stories, and all of your friends to make the best “campout” ever.
This is great fun but make sure you all take turns and concentrate on one member of your family. Give this person the respect they deserve and treat them like royalty. Attend to them. As well as being the table’s host, give them a treat. The activity and dinner that night is also chosen by the VIP family member.
Try something new night
You can dedicate a night to trying a new food or a new activity and broaden your horizons. It could be that you try an oscar style steak, a new board game or even see a new movie you haven’t seen before.
Make your own pizza night
This is a beloved night of all families. Making your own pizza night is perfect for everyone as everyone loves pizza. Get some little bowls out with an array of toppings, get your marinara sauce, cheese and your pizza bases. Then you and your kids and anyone else in the family can make your own personalised pizzas to the perfect just for you to put them in the oven and you can all enjoy them while watching a movie. You could even have a movie like ratatouille or something Italian based and have a theme tonight.
Board game night
One of the easy nights that you can plan for a board game night. Don’t go for the boring old games that take forever to complete and people get sick of. See what you do with exciting games. There are out there that people will enjoy and get involved in. You can even make up your own games and play those.
Home movie night
A lovely thing to do is to have a home movie night in, you don’t have to watch a film, with today’s technology you can link your phone or laptop to the tv and can share old family videos of the kids when they were little and family days out that you have on video. It will be a great way to reminisce and bond together as a family.
Family nights are important and you should dedicate time to being together, having fun, and making memories!
