Has it been a while since you got your crew all together for intentional laughter, fun, and bonding moments? We all get swept up in the busyness of life, so today we’d like to help you find ideas to slow down and have a blast with your family. No matter what special needs your loved ones may face, you can tailor all of the following suggestions to make it a great time for all.

Game Night

Friendly competition is excellent for character building and teaching life lessons. Hop to it by selecting a family favorite board game you can play in the comfort of your own home. If you’re in the market to select a new game for your family to play, check out this website to assist you in choosing the best one for your bunch.

You can take the competition up a notch or two by assigning teams ahead of time, creating team uniforms out of articles you already have around the house, and/or coming up with team chants. Your kids will love the excitement and build up to family game night.

Spectator Sports

Find a TV show or sports team that your family takes a common interest in and become its biggest fan! This can be fun that keeps on coming. Each week your family can gather around the living room television to watch the latest episode or game. Make some popcorn, grab some comfortable chairs or pillows, and bake a family favorite dessert to build the fun atmosphere for your viewing party. An added benefit to these kinds of group interests is that they provide easy conversation topics to connect with your kids both during and in between your family fun nights.

Volunteer Opportunity

We raise our kids to believe it is much better to give than to receive, so let’s put this altruism into practice. Volunteering at a local organization will not only benefit your community, but also open your family’s eyes to see needs other than just their own. Your kids can gain a heightened appreciation for the life you’ve provided them. It can be neat to see your children come up with ways they can personally serve others such as donating their old clothes or toys, befriending other children in need, or helping raise money for a wonderful cause. Provide your kiddos with the opportunity to give back and you’ll be amazed at the love that flows from your family to others.

Try one or even all three of the above ideas to bring your family together. The days are long, but the years are short, so enjoy every moment with your kiddos. We hope these suggestions help you make a ton of fun, lasting, family memories.
