Fun Family Things To Do When Staying At Home

The “new normal” for awhile is going to mean a lot of time at home. After cleaning, organizing and binging your favorite TV shows you’ll find that there is still a lot of time leftover. Fortunately, there are plenty of things you can for family fun that you might not have thought of. Consider these ideas:

Have a Costume Night

After several Halloween seasons, you have probably amassed a bunch of costumers. It is time to bust them out and have a costume night. It might even more fun if you send everyone off to their rooms and let them come back with their costume creations. Those costumes can be worn for dinner and be featured in some fun family lip syncing videos.

Throw an Indoor Picnic

If you have the chance, then you’ll definitely want to get outside for some fresh air. A backyard picnic is always a good option. So is an indoor picnic. You can make it a “pot luck” picnic with everyone in the family bringing their own treats. Spread out a blanket on the living room floor, turn up the music and have some foodie fun.

Have a Christmas Party

Hopefully, everything will get back to normal by Christmas but that doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate Christmas right now. Bring out the lights and decorations to turn a room into a winter wonderland. Bake up some of your favorite holiday cookies and treats. Of course, you’ll also have to break out the Christmas songs and movies.

Make an International Dinner Night

Dinners can actually be a time of learning and exploring. You can make a theme for a dinner based on an International cuisine. Pick a country and then serve up dishes that would be enjoyed in those countries. While you’re cooking, the kids can do some online research to share facts about that country.

Film a “Newscast”

Even though you’re stuck at home, there are still things going on. There is probably enough to fill up a family “newscast.” Set up an anchor desk and let your family report on what’s happening around the house. This can be a fun thing to share with friends and family members.
