Family Fun Time


I know as a wife and a mother of 3 (and one on the way) that family time is extremely important! My husband and I make Monday a mandatory day out of the week (after work is all done) to have some fun with the kids. Our laptops and cell phones are put to the side, so that we don’t get distracted and we all sit down and figure out what we’re going to do together. Some of our favorite things to do are watch movies, play board games/video games, have a talent show and have reading sessions. As you can see, these are cheap/free things to do, so spending money doesn’t have to be an option.

One of our favorite games to play on the Wii together is Mario Party 8
One of our favorite children shows that we like to watch together in the morning is Team Umizoomi

I remember one time last year, I got a free movie rental from Redbox and spent only 49¢ on dinner, including hot dogs, buns and sweet potato fries.  I got to have picnic dinner and a movie with my kids.  We had so much fun that night.

(My daughter made a “princess superhero” costume)

Here are some other fun ideas you can do together as a family:

-go to a local public park
-build a tent in your kids’ room and play “camping”
-do a craft project
-play a learning game (age appropriate)
-cook dinner/bake dessert

What are some things that you and your family do together?
