- Build a Fort
Relive your youth with your kids by making a DIY fort to play in. The great thing about making forts is that it’s an activity that doesn’t require a lot of supplies. Transform old cardboard boxes or sheets and furniture into a fun fort that your kids will love.
- Write Letters to Loved Ones Far or Close
Take the time on a day in with the family to write letters to out-of-town family and friends. Writing a letter — with actual pen and paper — is a meaningful way to keep in touch with loved ones.
- Have the Kids Make Their Own Story Books
What’s better than a bedtime story than a book starring your own child? Let your child create his/her own bedtime story, sending them on adventures to encourage their imagination and interest in reading. A heartwarming keepsake you’ll treasure forever.
- Family Game Night
Make the occasion extra fun by planning a theme and making some delicious snacks. No matter what age, you can involve the whole family.
- Build an Indoor Obstacle Course
When you need something to entertain the kids inside, why not build an indoor obstacle course? The family will have the best time with the challenge of having to complete each task. Obstacle courses are fantastic ways to keep kids occupied and allow them to burn off energy. The best part is that you can build an obstacle course with things you already have around the house, and you can create an entirely new course every time. Let your children design it and change the obstacle course every time.
- Cook Meals Together
Turn meals into a family fun time by getting the whole household involved with the cooking. Whether you want to put together a full course dinner or just bake cookies, it’s a great way to bond with your family members and enjoy some good food. If you have older kids, consider having an at-home potluck where everyone makes a part of the meal to share with the family. In addition, it’s a great opportunity for picky eaters to try new flavors or dishes they avoided before.
- Family Fun with Art and Craft
Arts and crafts are a great way to pass the time. Spend your time together coloring with crayons, experimenting with watercolor paints, making colorful slime, or practicing your origami.
- Family Movie Night
Pop some popcorn, get cozy, and turn on a movie that the whole family can enjoy. Make movie night extra fun by picking a theme, dressing for the occasion, and whipping up some on-theme snacks. If you’re watching a movie about dinosaurs, for example, serve dinosaur-shaped chicken nuggets. If it’s a superhero movie night, make your kids capes they’ll love to wear again and again.
