Fun Ideas & Games for Family Game Nights

Family game nights - a chance to spend some quality time with your family away from screens, all while having fun and creating new memories together!

Fun Ideas Games for Family Game Night

Over the past year, we’ve all spent more time together with those in our household, and adding a fun, family game night into the weekly schedule gives everyone a stress-free and entertaining night to look forward to!

On the hunt for some new games and challenges to add to your family game night? Check out our fun ideas below all ages will love: 

  1. Get Active & Challenge Each Other to a DIY Hallway Laser Maze! 

You’ll need just two things for this creative game: painter’s tape and streamers! String would work too, if you don’t have crepe paper or paper streamers available. 

Allow each member of your family to create their own DIY Laser Maze using a hallway in your home, and then challenge each other to see who can make it through each maze!

Check out this blog from Happy Mom Hacks for the full details and tips on creating a Laser Maze with your kiddos! 

  1. Yeti In My Spaghetti - perfect for toddlers, loved by all! 

A game that’s become oh-so popular in recent years and can be found for under $10 on Amazon, Target, & Walmart - Yeti In My Spaghetti!

Similar to Kerplunk and Don’t Break The Ice, Yeti In My Spaghetti, however, features easy set-up for each play, without a parent needed!

Take turns pulling plastic spaghetti while making sure the Yeti doesn’t fall in - perfect for developing fine motor skills in your little ones, too! 

  1. Check Out Port Discover’s Outdoor Activity Ideas for Families

As the weather begins to warm up (woohoo!) and outside activities become more enjoyable, add a fun outdoor activity to our family game night line-up! 

Check out our blog for material lists and directions to Nature Prints, Painting with Nature and Nature Bracelets

Play Tip: Each change of season, venture out with your family to do these activities and compare and contrast the differences you see in what you find and create! 

Or, if your family is looking to venture outside of your home and neighborhood, plan a day of play and games at Port Discovery Children’s Museum
