Movie Night

This one is a really simple choice to do for family home evening tonight. Grab everyone together, pop some popcorn, and then throw on a movie. The hardest thing about tonight is finding a location and choosing what movie to watch.

Pudding Pictionary

Need a twist on ordinary Pictionary? To set up, make some instant pudding and put some garbage bags down on the table. Put the pudding on the garbage bags so there won’t be a huge mess. Then start drawing in the pudding! Play as many rounds as you want. For fast cleanup, just pick up the garbage bag and throw it away!


Snapchat Sardines

This is a simple home evening idea. Designate boundaries for your game, exchange snapchats, and then split off in pairs. Have one pair go off and hide like normal sardines. They send 3 Snapchats, 10 seconds each. The rest of the pairs head off to find them. The last pair to find them loses and is “it” next time!


Group Games
