If you’re looking for something exciting to do without going out, here are 5 fun things to do with your family at home.
Board Games with a Twist
So you have a bunch of board games, but you’ve played them all. No worries! You don’t have to go out and buy more games to have fun. All you need to do is change the ones you have.
Instead of playing Sorry with a die, play it with playing cards. Aces are 1’s, 2-5 are normal, 6-10 are 6’s and everything else is removed. Get ready for a high-octane version of Sorry!
Or play Monopoly where everyone starts out with zero dollars, but all the bonuses are worth 10 times as much. There are lots of fun things to do with your family at home if you’re willing to be creative. That includes the kitchen.
Baking Treats (and Testing Them Out!)
Why not get together and bake some cookies? Add special treats inside them like chocolate chips or other candies.
If you want to get adventurous try a cake, but add something special to make it your own. Baking together is one of the fun things to do with your family at home that comes with its own delicious reward.
Learning Something Together
Of course, baking isn’t the only thing that comes with its own reward. Learning something together does as well.
Whether you play a game that teaches you as you play, watch something educational, or even try your hand at a new skill as a family, you get the instant reward of time together, and the lasting reward of newfound knowledge.
You can even add little quizzes or fun ways to make the learning stick. Maybe right answers get a custom made cookie. Finding ways to be creative makes discovering the fun things to do with your family at home part of your every day life.
Build Your Own Games
In fact, you can build your own games. You can combine games like Twister and Trivial Pursuit, requiring a pretzel-like response to a missed question.
Or you can make up your own games. Just talking about game ideas with kids, drawing out characters, and writing up rules, can be a great way to have fun while you create.
Some of the most fun things to do with your family at home is simply to have shoulder-to-shoulder time. It’s a time where everyone does their own creative task in the same room. One might be drawing, one might be writing, and one might be working with clay.
It’s a great way to hang out even when the things that inspire your creativity are all different.
