Family Night In - January

What is a family night in?  It's doing something together at home that everyone in the family can enjoy.  Busy families have to intentionally plan some relaxed time together. 

Family night in doesn't have to be a major event.  In fact, simple things are often the most fun and relaxing.

Here are some ideas to get you thinking:

Have a picnic on your living room floor.  Lay down a blanket and bring in the sandwiches.  Talk about your favorite game to play outside on a hot summer day.

Have a snowball fight indoors.  Make balls from wadded up newspaper and throw them at each other.  Use sofa cushions as your fort.

Make a favorite family recipe together.  Explore where the recipe came from.  Start a book of family recipes or special food traditions.

Spend the evening story telling.  Each person can make up a story or share a real story from the past. 

Plan a dream vacation.  Where would you go?  What would you do?

Put out a bird feeder.  Choose a time for everyone to observe the feeder and then look up what birds are visiting your feeder.
