23 Amazingly Fun Family Night Ideas

Some of my favorite childhood memories come from our weekly family nights.

Even as I got older, while I did complain about not being out with friends, I loved our activities.

My mom used to plan elaborate game nights & my dad would just throw something together-literally. But it was a great way for us to bond.

It seems like the tradition of family night has faded into a restaurant gimmick. I get it, sometimes we too go to a restaurant for kids eat free family night. But what happens after that? Do you take the time to reconnect?

The hubby & I have been saying for months that we would get out of our basic routine & add more family time. Finally we did it. We locked in 1 night a week on our family manager, put our phones & tablets away & brought back family fun!

Try these family night activities with your family.
