We know that sometimes it feels like there’s never enough time to get the kids to school, run errands, shop, clean, find a few minutes for yourself at the gym, and then get home in time to make dinner. After going separate directions all week, the weekends can seem even more chaotic. You have to get the kids to cheerleading or baseball practice. Your husband’s golf game takes up most of one day and sports take up the next. You can start to wonder if everyone will ever be together again in the same room at the same time as a family. Maybe it’s time to be more intentional about family together time?
Plan a family fun night! You can find the time, and you CAN afford it… especially if you visit Dollar Tree for all your supplies. You will find everything you need, from games and playing cards to snacks and drinks — all for just $1 each. Here are some ideas to get you and your family off to a great start on family fun:
Games and Grub
If your family loves to compete, then this is the fun night for you! Pull out your favorite board games, or open a pack of playing cards, and let the competition begin! Stop by Dollar Tree and stock up on snacks and drinks. Plus, if your family is serious about winning, grab a couple of trinkets as gifts for the winners.
Movies and Munchies
If your family is all about action and adventure, or comedy and drama, then snuggling in for a great flick is probably your first choice. Rent a family friendly feature, pop the corn, pour the drinks, and start the film! For extra fun, you could buy individual popcorn tubs for each family member, and maybe some theater boxed candy, and open up a pretend concession stand.
Crafts and Snacks
Does your family sweat glitter? If so, a night of crafting is probably just what your family needs. Stop in for all your crafting supplies, such as glue, glitter, markers, paper, and more. Get craft ideas from this blog, such as our fun Personalized Flip-Flops, or join our Value Seekers Club for more family fun craft ideas. And, of course, you’ll need to grab some snacks to keep the kids happy.
A Heart for Giving
If your family enjoys to give back, plan a family fun night to make care packages for the homeless. Stop by your local Dollar Tree and grab supplies, such as toothbrushes, deodorant, hand sanitizer, socks, water, snacks, and more. Then spend time together building care packages you pack in gallon zipper bags. You can donate your care packages to a homeless shelter, or keep them in your car to pass out to people you see asking for help while you’re out and about. Oh, and grab some snacks so you and the kids can munch while you have fun spending time together as a family helping those less fortunate.
So, start a new tradition and make getting together as a family a weekly priority. No matter how you spend the evening, you’ll be spending it together laughing, snacking, and having fun. And when you invite Dollar Tree, you’ll be saving money, too!
