101 Things to Do with your Family on a Friday Night


Every Friday night, my sons ask me the SAME question, “What are we going to do tonight?”

I thought it would be fun to think of 101 things to do with your family (I added girl stuff in, too!). I hate when Friday night comes and we don’t have a plan, so I wanted to get some ideas flowing! I’m telling you with 5 kids – Friday nights are sacred. Every time the kids get home they ask what we’re doing and it’s always the same – WHAT DO YOU WANT TO DO? And then shrug their shoulders. Well… enough!

I’m coming up with a list of 101 Things to Do with your Family on a Friday Night because it’s essential for our family to have a list to pull from when we’re looking for things to do! My advice? Print this out and use it for your family next time it’s a Friday night and you’re asking yourselves WHAT TO DO.
