“Being a family means you are a part of something very wonderful. It means you will love and be loved for the rest of your life”.
The one good thing about this pandemic is that it has brought all the family members together. Due to this lockdown, we have nothing but our family. However, despite being together, it is somewhat usual for us to spend most of our time on the phone or on a laptop rather than with family.
On the contrary, because of the pandemic, several others are still away from their family, and for them, technology is the only way out to stay connected with their loved ones. In line with this, the theme of the International Day of Families 2021 is ‘Families and New Technologies’.
We have curated a list of fun things that you can do with your family to strengthen the bond you share with them. Have a look!
The best way to spend the day with family is to play games with them. This is going to be interesting, plus it will freshen up everyone’s mind. Bring out the traditional card games and board games. Try your hand at old card games that you used to play as a child. Scrabble, Bingo, Sequence, and other favourite games are ideal for family afternoons.
Watch movies together
For the movie lovers in your family, plan for a movie at home and enjoy with popcorn and candy. For a proper theatre-like experience, you can add props like tickets, individual popcorn tubs, soft drink glasses and dim light ambience.
Working out together
Nothing can be better than looking after your health as a family. Make the most of the pandemic, make your health the top priority, and work out together.
A hand in cooking
A family that cooks together, eats together. Give a hand to the head cook at home and each meal could turn out to be a feast.
Cleaning up your home
Give a helping hand to your loved ones while cleaning up your home. Also, you can find some waste items which can help rekindle the crafter inside you.
