Staying Home? Here are 20 fun things to do at home with your family:

August 7, 2020, Author: Karen Stanley

There’s no place like home, right? When many of us are spending more time at home, however, sometimes we could use some extra ideas when it comes to fun things to do at home with your family. To kick off the weekend, we’ve rounded us some of our favorite ways to spend time at home. If you try one, be sure to tag us on Instagram @newvillagehomesaz to be featured on our account!

Fun things to do at home with your family:

  1. Make cookies. Good old fashioned cookies. There is something about filling your home with amazing smells, and a sweet treat! Music and dancing pairs beautifully with it.

    Making classic chocolate chip cookies, snickerdoodles, or your family’s favorite, is a great way to slow down and enjoy time together
  2. Another idea is to have an iron chef night. Pull out all the random things you have in the pantry and see who’s improv skills are supreme!
  3. Challenge your family to a blind-folded taste-test.
  4. A great activity is to simply ask questions over ice cream or some other dessert. Come up with a list ahead of time, or let people make up their own.
  5. Have a YouTube Karaoke night.
  6. Enjoy a themed dinner and movie night. Ratatouille anyone?
  7. Start a book to read out loud as a family.
  8. Set up Twister, or have a good old game night! Top it off with some homemade popcorn.

  9. Watch a concert at home. Youtube and Netflix have more than ever before!
  10. Learn a new dance off of Youtube.
  11. Make a family bucket list, and schedule a time to do one of the things on it to get it started. Is building a home on that list? Check out these things you can do to start planning, without leaving the house!
  12. Coloring contest with the whole crew–adults included! Adult coloring books are becoming more and more popular as a way to unwind.

    Find complex sheets like these, or let your team free-hand it with blank paper and coloring supplies
  13. Write thank you, or thinking-of-you cards to family and friends, and drop them in the mail. Nothing like pausing to add a little gratitude to your weekend.
  14. Plan gifts for the year. Talk about being productive! Start planning out birthday and holiday gifts to make them extra thoughtful this year. Top it off with taking a housewarming gift to a new neighbor!
  15. Yoga night! Pull up a youtube video, dim the lights, whatever helps you unwind. Maybe pair it with a movie afterward, or just enjoy the quiet.
  16. Transport your family to Italy, with a painting and Martinelli’s night. Going all out with the adults? Make it a paint night with wine and a cheeseboard.
  17. These are times unlike any other! Another fun thing to do with your family could be to create a time capsule to open a year or more later.
  18. Have a family talent show night, and let everyone showcase a talent, whatever it may be.

    Let your kids prep a talent they want to share, and prepare for a beyond entertaining demonstration the whole family will enjoy!
  19. Make popsicles. Again, this isn’t just for the kiddos. Beat the Arizona heat with some easy and healthy popsicles like these Pineapple Mango Popsicles, fresh from your own kitchen.
  20. Enjoy a full-on staycation–whether you go for luxury, or a fun themed weekend, silence the phones, and let everyone know you are out of the office for the weekend!
