Break out the finger foods and fuzzy socks! With working and learning from home becoming the new normal, a night in with the whole family is a great way to shake off those social distancing blues and bring some life to the living room.
Think of the Theme
If you’re looking to shake things up, try out a themed dinner and game! Have your whole family dress up in their fanciest attire and enjoy a home-cooked five star dinner. After you finish up, set up a card table in the living room to play some (not so high stakes) card games like Uno, blackjack, or anything your heart desires! Card games are quick to learn and quick to clean up, which means you can keep things fresh by playing a few different games throughout the night!
If getting fancy isn’t your fancy, take things to the Great Outdoors and go on a backyard camping trip! Spend your afternoon cooking s’mores in the backyard, and when the sun starts to go down, pop up your tents and unroll your sleeping bags. You can spend your evening telling stories, and a backyard camping trip is a great way to really shake up your routine. The best part is, when you come back to sleeping in your bed, it’ll feel like you’re coming back refreshed from a vacation!
If you miss going out to the movies, why not bring the movies to you? Put together a blanket and pillow fort in your living room, or rearrange your furniture to make the room feel like a theater! Once you put together a setup you’re satisfied with, pick out your favorite movie franchise and let the binge begin! To make your movie-going experience even more exciting then when you head to the theater, have one family member find some trivia about the movies so you can watch them like never before!
Whether you’re taking on the Great Outdoors to get refreshed or you’re binging your family’s favorite movies, it’s easy to keep things fresh while you’re sticking around at home. For more ways to make the most of being at home, be sure to Like Lennar on Facebook.
