The memories that you make while spending time with your entire family are beautiful keepsakes that you will treasure for a lifetime. So, arrange a picnic, organize movie nights, go for a drive, cook together, and do something that will bring out the happy in everyone. A family that has fun together, stays together. This may also bring the family members emotionally close to each other.
Organize a Singing Competition
You can make two teams, each having equal number of participants. Give a chance to the kids and younger children to participate and showcase their singing skills. Appoint one family member as the referee who notes down the points earned by each group and ensures that the rules are being followed. One member of a team starts a song and any one of the other team has to start singing a song starting from the last word of the song that was sung by the first team. If the song is sung correctly, then the team earns points and in case the team fails to sing, then points are deducted. Appoint one member of each team as the leader or the captain who decides the strategies. Give away handsome prizes to the team that wins the competition.
Go to Your Favorite Vacation Spot
The best way to spend quality time with your family members is to plan a family vacation to the place which you all love. Youngsters can take the initiative to make travel and stay arrangements. Once you reach the vacation spot, you can travel to beautiful and exotic locations, click photographs, play your favorite outdoor and indoor sports, go for a swim, eat at fine restaurants and shop at the most happening places in the city. Engaging in all these activities with your beloved family members would be a great idea.
Indulge in Creative Activities
Doing creative things such as painting, sketching, designing sculptures, writing short stories, composing poems, making greeting cards and creative objects out of plastic or wood, would be a good idea to entertain the entire family. Gather all the materials required for making these items and fix a time for everyone to assemble for the activity. The entertainment quotient rises when you have a festival such as Christmas coming up. You can make decorative items for your home to make it look awesome. To complete the task sooner, assign individual duties to the family members who are good at a particular form of art.
Go for a Long Drive
Long drives, with good music, great company, amazing finger food, and a superb climate can act as a real stress buster for everyone in the family. Take loads of pictures, make fun pit stops, and drive without a care (but responsibly), to make a beautiful day out of it.
These were some really great ideas that you could use. Can you think of any more fun things to do with your family? Share your thoughts with us in the comments section.
