Quality family time does wonders for the emotional well being of a child. Is spending time together as a family a priority for you? Are you looking for some family fun night ideas?
While having dinner together, watching a movie at home and playing board games are a great way to spend time together, nothing beats a fun night out.
What are some fun things to do at night with the fam? Are you fresh out of ideas? Don’t worry we’ve got you covered. Check out these awesome family night out ideas the whole family will love.
Do you need a few new things to add to your family fun night ideas? As your kids get older, is it harder to keep them entertained and content with hanging out with the family? Let’s look at some super fun things to do at night out with the family.
1. Miniature Golf
This is a classic family activity that never gets old. Each course is different and you can kick it up with some family competition.
Don’t feel like going out? Build a mini-golf course at home. See how here.
2. Escape Room
An escape room is pretty much what the name suggests. Your group is “locked” in a room and uses clues to find the way out.
It costs anywhere from $25 – 30 each and you usually have around an hour to escape.
The games are for adults or families with younger children. Different rooms have different themes depending on who is in your group. It’s great fun for all!
3. Scavenger Hunt at a Museum
A museum might not sound all that fun and exciting at first, but make it into a game. Prepare a scavenger hunt that will have the kids interacting with the exhibits.
Make a checklist of things to find specific to the museum of choice. As the kids find each one, they check it off the list.
Remind them of the museum rules before starting.
4. Kayak, Canoe or Paddle at Sunset
If you don’t have any of the above, you can rent them at many marinas or outdoor stores. Take the family out for a sunset water adventure.
Some companies may offer a guided tour. Otherwise, you’ll want to keep younger children with you in the canoe or two-person kayak.
This might fall under the category of church family fun night ideas. Your church might be able to point you in the right direction for a volunteer opportunity for the whole family.
You could volunteer at a soup kitchen, habitat for humanity, or a homeless shelter, to name a few. Animal lovers? Try the Humane Society.
Volunteering together and helping others can be fun and rewarding at the same time.
