Have an Indoor Picnic

You need to pack food items in a basket as you would in a real picnic and choose the right spot in your house to spread a picnic blanket. Get all family members to sit on the blanket and share the foods or snacks like you would when out on a picnic. You can tell stories there or play some games like chess or do any other activity.

Have a Barbecue

After getting the fire ready, start roasting various foods like sausages, fish, chicken, and even corn on the fire. You could even set a campsite fire and have all family members and friends sit around it. Get some food to roast in the fire as you tell scary stories. The best time for this is on a summer night, so you enjoy the night starry skies. But most importantly, enjoy each other’s company and relive your past funny days.

Make Greeting Cards

Record a “Newscast”

With smartphones or a video camera, you can film a newscast where each family member has their turn to present news of the events happening in the family or the neighborhood. Besides assisting every person to sharpen their public speaking skills, it offers a chance to interact and have fun.
