The Modern Family Game Night

09/19/2011

Chief Vlogger at Hoo-dee-hoo.com, Meredith Sinclair, shows us some creative and new games the whole family can play.

MEREDITH'S TIPS FOR FAMILY GAME NIGHT:

-If you build it, they will come!
Don't WAIT for your kids to ask, or the perfect time. Set up the game or activity, sit yourself down and look like you're having fun. They'll want some of that too.

-Game time can be anytime
Family game time doesn't always have to take place around a table at a designated time. Try throwing it in while your kids are at the kitchen island watching you get dinner ready, in the back seat during carpool, or in bed on night instead of story time.

-Mix it up/Try some new/creative games
Many kids don't want anything to do with a game unless there's a controller and it's on a screen. There are a lot more options these days when it comes to fun/entertaining and creative games, other than the traditional four player board games.
