Building a fort in your living room is every kid’s dream. Pitch the idea to your kids, and they’ll start grabbing blankets and pillows right away. The more blankets you have, the warmer the fort will be. Don’t forget to make a secret password handshake!
2. Make a Family Scrapbook
Get creative with your kids and make a family scrapbook. You can put in all the mementos of your trips, family photos, and postcards.
This family-bonding activity can give you an afternoon to get to know your child better. Making a family scrapbook also gives you a chance to tell your kids more about your family tree.
3. Have a Scavenger Hunt
Create a big adventure indoors with a scavenger hunt. It won’t take you too long to hide toys around the house and draw a map to them.
You can even let your kids set up the scavenger hunt for you. This family-bonding activity may even lead you to lost things around the house.
4. Make Your Own Short Film
If you’re feeling up for it, ask your kids to make a movie about anything they want. It can be a stop-motion movie with their favorite toys, or it can be you and your family playing dress-up. You can make your home movie with your cellphone and watch your kids’ creativity go wild.
5. Hold a Movie Marathon
If you’re not up for making a movie and want to spend the day in your PJs, hold a movie marathon in your living room. Snuggle up in a big blanket with some popcorn and hot cocoa and play your favorite family movies or make a marathon a list of Christmas movies for the season.
