Weekly Freezer Cooking Menu and Family Game Night

Our second family game took off with Candy Land for our 4 and 6 year-old and then Apples to Apples with our 11 and 13 year-old, which we’ve never played. This game went well considering we used our toddlers as card placers and not the thinkers (if you’ve ever played this before). However after a few rounds, they were losing interest with their important jobs. My husband and I concluded after week two that we should divide and conquer because of the five year age span between our two sets of kids. Next week we’re going to try playing differently: one adult will play a game with the older kids and one adult with the younger ones. I think some games can involve our entire family like last week, all ages and stages and some will have us playing creatively.

 Do you have game suggestions for our family: ages 4, 6, 11, 13?
