Do you ever have a "family fun night?"
Sounds like you guys would like to have fun during lunch break.
It's this: http://www.amazon.com/John-N-Hansen-Chess-4/dp/B000BNLVBS/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1297347738&sr=8-1When I worked outside the home, we had a set in the break room. We'd play it all the time during lunch. Sometimes we'd play teams, other times we'd play all for one. It got pretty crazy (as much as chess can get, anyway)!
4-way chess board, what's that?
We do not have a set family night in our home.
We don't really do anything for family night. Since I don't have much motivation to one.
We have family night, but not near as often as we should due to work schedules, sports, etc. I need to be more diligent about making sure we schedule time together. My kids are 7, 5 and 3, so the 3 year old is on my husband or my team and sometimes the boys will pair up or I'll help the 5 year old read. We love Spongebob Cranium. It's a great game! We don't follow the time rules though because it sucks the fun out of it. We play uno, or play Wii games (the local library rents them for free) or we'll do a Redbox movie. The night starts out with homemade pizza for dinner, or maybe breakfast for dinner and then games. We also have an air hockey table that my 3 year old likes to play (we pull out a step stool for her). We usually pick one activity and that's our fun night so we don't get burned out on the same things. Wii one week, board games the next, then maybe a movie. The boys love the show Wipeout so we'll make our own wipeout course with our couch cushions, etc.
Not yet, but it is definitely something we wil be doing when the kid(s) are older! I can't wait to play board games, do puzzles and fun stuff like rock band and wii sports games! ;) Although i'm sure those will be SO out of date in 6
