Spending time together as a family is one of the most important things you can ever do. Life will come and go but the time you get can never come again so it’s important to make the most of it. This is true for both your immediate family (people who live under your roof) and also your extended family.
Here are four simple games to play as a family:
Pencil and paper games: These are classic for a reason. There are many great, fun pencil and paper games you can play from the simple Tic Tac Toe to more complex games. There are word games, number games and everything in between.
Card games: Here’s another classic that you can do when the weather is bad outside, when the electricity or internet is out, or any time you just want to have a good time. There are simple card games that you play with an ordinary deck of cards. You also have trading card games, and other style card games that you can choose from.
Puzzles: Nothing beats a classic puzzle. They come in so many different varieties and skill levels and can be a lot of fun to enjoy together with family. You can talk while you do them and get to know one another better. It’s a great way to pass the time. Simple, but fun.
Charades: You can play traditional charades or other variants of the same idea such as charades with art instead. It’s fun, creative, and will help you learn more about one another.
Now you have some new ideas for games to play as a family. The next time there is a get-together or holiday, you can bring out these ideas.
