It’s a Saturday night and your family is home, but no one is interacting. Your kids might be watching TV in the basement, or they might be glued to their phones or computers in their bedrooms. You are probably in the living room watching a movie.

 

How many of your nights sound like this? Instead, plan a family game night!

 

Having a regular game night can be an easy and affordable way to get your family talking and having a great time together. Here are a few tips to help plan your next family game night.

 

  • Select a game everyone can enjoy. Don’t select a game for the oldest or youngest person in your family. If there is a large age gap between your children, you may want to partner up with the youngest and be on a team together to play the game.
  • Change it up. Try not to play the same game every week. Even a family favorite is bound to slowly become over played. Try new games and even different types of games. If you are playing a lot of board games, maybe try a card game instead.
  • Have snacks. You don’t need to go all out, but having some salty or sweet snacks along with a healthy option is a fun way to get the kids around the table playing a game.
  • Promote winning and losing with grace. Some healthy competition can be good during game night, but be sure to teach everyone that you need to win and lose graciously.

 

If you are struggling to come up with ideas for family game night, here is a list of games you could try. Or maybe you would rather do an activity as a family. Check out a list of 20 ideas for a family fun night here.
