A Night Out
The first thing that I suggest is that you set a date every month in which you and your family have a night out. You can go to a different place every time, or you can choose somewhere that you know you all like and make it into a tradition. It is important to include your family in the decision making so everyone feels a part of it whether it’s just out to grab an ice cream cone, go to dinner, to see a movie, or something different. It doesn’t need to be extravagant nor costly but something fun for the whole family. We like to go to places that have activities the whole family can participate in and enjoy places that offer multiple activities where the reviews or slogans offer ‘Bowl. Dine. Unwind. Family Fun’. There are lots of ways to incorporate a family fun night out!
A family fun favorite at my house is havinga game night once per week! It’s something just to keep everyone connected and fun. This allows you to try out all different kinds of games, provides for a super fun family night together, and generally created a fun atmosphere. These are some of the memories that you are going to treasure for the rest of your life, so try to make the time to do it. Do what works for your family, if it’s not weekly try every other week or monthly but set a day so everyone knows and can look forward to it!
Get active! A healthy lifestyle is important and getting in at least 30 minutes a day can improve your overall health. This is another great way to have family fun – try exercising together. Set aside a few times per week, even when times are busy, to go for a walk around the neighborhood together. When time allows plan to go to other locations and go hiking, running, or cycling! It might not seem like the most fun thing in the world, but it can be if you make it so!
I hope that you have found these ideas helpful, and see some of the things that you can do to have a good time with your family. It’s important that to spend time with your family as unit as babies don’t keep.
