Get ready for a night full of fun! Here are a few family games to enjoy this season.

Music

Your Favourite Dance Playlist
Listen to your favourite childhood dance party tunes! The kids may find your moves to be quite embarrassing, but it is certain they will never forget your unique style!

Table Games

Mega Jenga
Purchase or make a life-sized Jenga game the family will love playing. Find a sturdy table to stack the hardwood blocks, then take turns slowly pulling the pieces from the bottom of the stack and carefully placing them on top of the pile.

Spoons
A standard deck of 52 cards is used plus a number of spoons using one fewer spoon than the number of players playing in the game.
Players take turns trying to collect a four-of-a-kind. Once someone does, everyone tries to grab a spoon. Without a spoon, you get a letter. If a player spells “S-P-O-O-N”, they’re out! The last player standing wins!

Around the Circle
This game definitely needs a group of at least 4 to make it fun. Have everyone sit in a circle either on the floor or around a table. Decide on a theme and the subject (e.g. cars, fast-food restaurants, cities). Then you go around the circle and each person says something that is in that category (e.g. if the category is cars, then suitable answers would include, Toyota, Mazda, Mercedes, etc.) If a person can’t think of something, hesitates too long, or repeats a previous answer, they are out of the game. The game continues until only one person is left.

Shadows in the Forest
An immersive play experience that brings a distinctive twist to game night – you play it in the dark! Click here for details!

Jig-saw Puzzle
Short on time? Between your family’s busy schedule, each night or morning you can piece a puzzle or two together. This group effort activity is great to show how your family can work together as a team.

Get Active

Indoor Bowling
This is an inexpensive way to enjoy an evening of bowling, minus the shoe rental and stylish shirts. Line up plastic cups (the more, the merrier) and roll a plastic whiffle ball (or dodgeball or any other ball that won’t cause too much indoor damage) toward the “pins.” Rotate who is scoring, bowling and resetting the pins.

Obstacle Course – Get the family moving by creating an indoor or outdoor obstacle course. You can compete in teams or time each player. Obstacles can include climbing over a tower of pillows, crawling through a blanket tunnel, taking five trips around the swing set or doing 15 pushups by the mailbox. The more creative, the better.
