Youth Group Family Fun!

While we're all away from one another - focus on spending time with your family, engaging in fun activities!

For Example...

Get Puzzled!: Work on a crossword puzzle, word search, or a 1,000 piece puzzle! (Our website has several Christian Themed crosswords on the Quarantine Fun page!)

Retro Movie Day: Pick a rainy day - and watch an OLD movie such as Wizard of Oz, Bedknobs and Broomsticks, Mary Poppins (the Original), etc.

Marie Kondo Challenge: Clean out a closet, the Garage, room or shelf - be sure to set aside items in good condition so they can be donated to those in need. Discard those items which are broken, expired, or no longer "bring you joy."

Flower Pot Day: Have each child plant flowers in a pot with their own "theme" choose colors, sun or shade, etc. 

Plan a Family Garden: Spend some time outdoors playing in the dirt! There are many different kinds of gardens you can try, if planting your rows of vegetables doesn't seem quite fun enough. 

You can try:

The Square Foot Garden Planner

How to Start a Garden: Tips and planning info for beginning gardeners.

Thrifty Couple Garden Planning Sheets: It never hurts to plan what you're going to plant before you start.

Dress up in your best clothes and have a fancy dinner: Plan a full "menu" with appetizer, main course and dessert (you can even print up a menu like in your favorite restaurant), order from a local restaurant and have your favorite family dinner out at home, or just dress up for pizza night - the options are endless!

Try making a new recipe: Find a recipe you want to try (see, Pinterest, or Food Network for ideas) and prepare it. Bonus Points: Set up your phone and take video to make your own cooking show to share with friends and family!

Set up an in-home "nail salon":  And try out some new nail color combinations or nail art techniques. Want to do each nail a different color? Go for it! want to practice painting flowers on your nails? There are endless possibilities! (For more ideas, see pinterest or do a google search for nail art!)
