Family movie night

Cooking and baking together
Get your family in the kitchen together! This is a great way to not only make fun family memories but also pass down family recipes your kids will cherish for a lifetime. Get your whole family involved in dinnertime or even whipping up a quick snack.
Family game night
Gather your favorite board games and have a family game night each week! This is a fun and competitive way to spend time as a family. I wrote a whole article on family game nights you can check out here.
Shopping as a family
Go a few errands to run? Take the kids and the whole family with you! Going somewhere as simple as the grocery store can still be a fun outing when done together. This is also a fun way to get everyone out of the house too.
Go on a camping trip
Need a tech break? Gather up the whole family and go camping together! Camping is an excellent way to bond as a family and can be a new family tradition.
Decorate as a family
Instead of putting up holiday decorations by yourself, get your whole family involved. Even if it’s only a few things, it’ll still be tons of fun! Even just putting up small decorations can still be fun for little ones.
If your family loves going to the mountains, the beach, or a different location, make a yearly tradition to go to the same spots! This is a fun way to build memories and start your own family traditions.
Go for a hike
Once a month, or during certain conditions, go for a hike! Small hikes can still be a fun tradition that gets everyone out of the house and moving.
Eating dinner as a family
This one sounds so simple but will have a huge impact! Make it a point to have everyone sit down for dinner as a family! This is a great tradition and a great way to guarantee time together each day.
Practice random acts of kindness as a family
Want to do something for someone else? Consider planning a few fun random acts of kindness! You can make a list together and treat it like a bucket list! This is a great way to give back and still have fun together at the same time.
No matter how big your family is, these family traditions will help you bond and even bring you closer together in the process.
