More than ever, family time faces stiff competition from other activities: video games, iPhone apps, texting, and social media. Family Fun Night: The Third Edition offers the antidote: tips and advice for establishing weekly family time, as well as hundreds of specific ideas for spending quality time together, with an emphasis on "unplugged" activities. This fun and comprehensive book features ways to interest teens (let each one invite a friend or allow them to play their music in the background on game night), how to contend with a large age range (form teams or play games of chance rather than skill), and ways to manage competitiveness among siblings (play cooperative games or ones where players change teams throughout).
From clever twists on timeless classics to brand new games your family will love, this book offers something for every family, during every month of the year.
