At-Home Family Night Activities

September 3, 2020

During the past few months, families have been becoming accustomed to staying home more. As we slowly get used to the new normal, it can still be challenging to keep everyone entertained while in the house. Luckily, there are plenty of fun activities that the entire family can do together at home. Here are a few to inspire your own family to make lasting memories while spending quality time together at home.

Movie Night—This is a simple activity that everyone will enjoy. Every time you have a movie night, let a different family member pick their favorite. That way, everyone will have a turn choosing something to watch in the coming weeks. Better yet, consider a movie marathon over the weekend and allow each family member to choose one leg of the marathon. Don’t forget to bring popcorn and treats. In fact, make it part of the activity and make a delicious treat as a family to share during the movie.

Homemade Pizza—Many families have a tradition of ordering pizza once a week (or when no one feels like cooking). Do things a little different while you are all at home together and learn to make pizza. Choose one type that everyone enjoys or let everyone make a personal-sized pizza and add whatever toppings they’d like. Learning to make pizza at home is also an excellent opportunity to teach your kids a new skill.

Backyard Camping—Have a family outing camping and enjoying nature right in your own backyard. Involve the whole family in setting up the tents and sleeping bags. Have a campfire, sing songs, tell stories, and roast marshmallows. Before bed, take some time to admire the stars. The best part is that everyone can get ready for bed in the house, and it will be easy to make a delicious breakfast when everyone wakes up in the morning.

Dance Party—Make a playlist of your family members’ favorite songs. Gather in one room and dance to your new playlist. It’s a great way to laugh together and let go of any stress you may be feeling at the moment. As a bonus, it’s also a great way to get moving and get some exercise!

Art Night—Bring out the crayons, pencils, watercolors, and paper. Come up with a theme, such as summertime, animal friends, or family portraits. It’ll be fun to see what everyone comes up with while allowing them to get creative.

During an uncertain time, it can be challenging to know how to keep your entire family entertained. However, it’s the perfect opportunity to make memories and do things that you don’t always have time to do together. Cherish these fleeting moments with your loved ones.
