One of my family’s favorite activities is family game night. On family game night, we turn off the tech, set work and school aside, and focus solely on doing something fun together as a family.
Faster than you realize, the kids will be grown and your opportunities to do things together will be limited. So, if you don’t already have a family game night tradition, it’s a great time to start!
There are plenty of board games you can buy that the whole family will enjoy. For example, check out my family’s picks for the Best Family Board Games.
You don’t have to buy a board game to enjoy family game night though. Instead, you can make your own!
