Fun "family night" activities?

I would like to recommend a fun search and find book that we were able to do as a family and the girls LOVED it! It is called Joe Journeyman - - and it was so much fun we had to tell other people. They have lots of puzzles, coloring pages, and other things to for our girls.

We make it a point to have pizza and movie night at home every Friday no matter what is going on in our lives. It has become a tradition in our house that started when our daughters were younger (with the Disney movies). We all look forward to the end of the week time together! Sometimes we also bake cookies together too...

Not for the littles but our kids, 7,9,11 love to play Farkle with their dad and I while our 2 year old is napping. It's a simple game with 6 dice and a list of the point value of the combinations. We get to giggling so hard the hubby and I have to remind everyone to keep it down. Love the Joe Journeyman idea. Definitely looking that up!

Hi, My five-year old daughter loves this coloring book. She likes to learn numbers and letters 😉

We go to a lot of community events. I'm always watching community events calenders for things to do.

There is a dollar cinema here and we take the kids to that a lot. The tickets are actually $1, so we bring the kids' friends and then go out for pizza after.

Open houses at museums and art galleries.

I really like minigolf, and think the kids will all be old enough to play soon.

The kids like Indoor trampoline park, but it's expensive so we don't go often.

We did this more when they were younger. but we pick a playground they've never been to before and have a picnic there.

We make cookies or other treats, play games like operation and monopoly and sorry and aggravation, we have a lot of fun looking through my grandmothers closet of games for old games I haven't seen anywhere else. We go for frozen yogurt and play video games but I have the best time watching my daughter give my husband a make over!!!! We go for walks up to the shopping center and spend the day walking and looking at all the favorite shops and just kinda wing it and some of our favorite things have been going to activities scheduled at the library or youth center downtown. Of course there is always the park or the beach or the pool.

board or video games together, my son is teaching me how to play the pokemon card game ( ugh) but he really like s me taking an interest in something he likes alot. We also do outloud reading. to be really fun we pull out funny books such as Dr Seuss and have fun doing voices or trying to read Fox in Socks fast without messing up.
