The more time that a family spends together, the more memories that the family makes. Those who are preparing for more family time together this winter than they ever had before should figure out ways of making each day special and creating memories that will last. There are activities that can be taken on that are appropriate for all ages and that will help to keep the whole family entertained.
Put on a Special Movie Night Each Week
Instead of fighting over what everyone wants to watch together, you can make a list of the best TV shows on Netflix and some of the best movies that you have access to and then allow a different member of your family to choose what to watch each week. The living room can be transformed to feel more like a theater, and popcorn and candy can be used as snacks on the special movie nights.
Write Letters for Those Who are Far Away
If there are family members who have not been seen in a long time because they live far away, you might sit down at the table and work on writing letters to those family members. When the weather is cold outside, you can join together to create cards and other items to send to someone who might be getting lonely and missing everyone. Put out stickers, markers, and other materials to make letters extra special, and take turns telling stories about the family members who will be receiving the letters.
Work on Home Decor Projects Together
Everyone in your family is going to appreciate new wall art when each person got to play a part in creating that art. Get the family together and work on creating new home decor pieces to put up. All it takes is a blank canvas, paint, and active imaginations to create something unique and beautiful. When your family works on home decor together, the pieces that are created are going to be meaningful and they are going to stay in your home for years to come. Everyone will remember the experience of creating those pieces each time that they see them on the wall.
Your family does not have to be bored when everyone is stuck at home together, and there are activities that you can take on to help everyone bond. When everyone is spending the winter at home, each day can be made special.
