Family games at home has endless opportunities and variations. But let’s be honest, when housework has no end and kids are always asking for surprises or activities, your mind is just blowing away. Sometimes even I run out of ideas on what to do when we all are gathered together.
Truth to be told, after a long week we all get absent-minded and it looks like mission impossible to gather people in one place, keep their attention and enjoy the time spent together.
As in every moment in life, nothing helps as much as positivity and a good dose of laugh. It’s something that cheers all family up and brings to the moment of present. You need just one minute, one try and all the family members find themselves here and now.

My TOP 10 Family Games At Home
Since we made the Wheel Of Fortune out of a cardboard and came up with these dare ideas our family game nights have changed! This game is perfect if you are not only ready to be careless, but shameless as well. Silly and hilarious games that are fun yet useful for kids and even adults by leaving a comfort zone!
It seems like centuries have passed from 2016 (time goes so fast!) but this game is still on top in our house. After we made a break from playing it, eventually kids started asking for a mouth game again and again. Is it resistant to time? 😀
This game came up by my daughter when she was bored! Now, after some of my work and updates it is really fun, hilarious, COMPETITIVE and even an educational game! A must try for all the families!
5. Family Games at home: STEM Challenges For Family
Many people think of STEAM (or STEM) activities to do at school, but they also are fun, engaging activities the whole family can participate in. Having a STEAM family night is budget friendly and requires minimal prep. Usually, we divide into two teams and the game always turns out awesome!
It’s an activity that turned into an easy drawing game! It voted one of the best drawing games EVER by my kids. It’s a very simple, yet brilliantly awesome and very very fun not only for kids, but for adults too!
For our last family game night we decided to do a craft. A really fun and practical one. This DIY printed t-shirt craft/activity is perfect for family reunions or family game nights because the cost is so low and the process is so easy and fun!
We were amazed how we succeeded with DIY face pie game! Why do you need to buy a toy if your family can make it all together? Moreover, play with it for hours! Super silly, take a look!
One day I noticed that we have a lot of dices in our drawer. I‘ve decided to think of what can we do with it. I started to check some ideas in the internet and then I found this cool whatdowedoallday blog and this game idea! What I liked the most is that game is not only fun, but educational (especially for kids) as well.
