Figure out what veggies grow in what season and how to start and keep up with your garden. If you already garden, get your family involved in the process and ask them what type of veggies they want to grow.

This is a fun way to get kids involved while showing them the importance of patience and responsibility!

3. Enjoy a Hike or Go to the Park

Fun Friday Nights: How to Have Fun While Staying In

You don’t always have to go out to have a good time! That’s right, you can just as easily stay in on Friday night and have all the fun in the world. Plan to invite your friends and neighbors over and try out some of these fun at-home activities that will keep you entertained all night long.

Game Night
This classic is still one of the best ways to have fun while staying in. Invite your friends or your neighbors over for a rowdy night of card and board games that are sure to create lasting memories. Also, if you want to go big for game night add a theme and decorate accordingly.

Movie Night
Having a movie night is always a surefire way to have an awesome Friday night. A movie night is always easy to pull off and it can be very relaxing after a long week of working. However, you can also take movie night to a grander scale by having a big screen in your backyard. Pick a nice night to sit outside and project a movie onto a sheet. Not only is this different and fun from an original movie night, but you can also enjoy the outdoors.

Neflix Night
Similar to movie night, you can easily have a wonderful night in by hosting a get together and watching the latest Netflix series or a show that you and your friends have missed out on. Are you trying to catch up on a series? Gather with your friends and binge as much of the season as you can. At the end, not only have you spent quality time with your company, but you’ll have endless theories to chat about after the binging is over. If you don’t have Netflix don’t worry, just stick with the classic movie night and you’ll be sure to have a good time!

Girls Night: Spa Night/Bake Off
Forget girls night out. Instead have a girls night in and have a spa night or bake off. You don’t have to stick with the classic game night to have a fun time with your ladies. Relax and unwind from a stressful week of work and treat each other to a spa treatment. Paint your nails or give yourself a facial, whatever you decide to do make sure it’s relaxing and fun. However, if spa night is not for you, you have other options to choose from. Have a bake off and try out all the recipes that you’ve been dying to try. The options are endless, so plan the perfect girls night in for you and your favorite ladies.

Guys Night: Sporting Events/Competition
If girls can have a girls night in, why can’t guys do the same? Don’t limit yourselves to game night or movie night, get creative and think about what you and your guys would enjoy. Does a flag football game sound fun or would you rather grill and chill with your buddies? Whatever you decide to do just remember to have fun with it!

Host a Winning Super Bowl Party!

With the Super Bowl just around the corner, you’re probably thinking about how to celebrate. Hopefully your team made it to the final showdown, but if they didn’t you can still have fun and throw a winning Super Bowl party to enjoy the festivities with your friends and family. Here are some great tips, trick, and recipes to help you throw a spectacular Super Bowl party, even if your favorite team isn’t competing.

Decorating:
Decorating is essential for a fun Super Bowl party. Not only is it fun to decorate, but it also gets everyone in the perfect mood for the game. Get creative with your décor and follow a football theme that everyone will love. From AstroTurf coasters to a football field table runner, the décor options are endless! Check out some of these great ideas for Super Bowl décor and have fun decorating! Also, don’t forget to decorate with your team’s colors!

Food:
The most important aspect of the party, other than the game of course, is the amazing food. Opting to serve traditional tailgate food is probably the best way to go, but don’t be afraid to have fun with your food. Get creative with how you set up the food you are serving and take inspiration from some of these great ideas! If you’re having trouble finding recipes to enjoy during game day, look no further. The Today Show has got you covered! Check out their list of the 50 Ultimate Super Bowl Party Foods! However, if you’re looking for healthier finger foods try out some of these healthier recipes of traditional tailgate food.

Games:
Depending on what time your party begins, you can plan to play some games in advance. If you are starting the festivities early, play a game of flag football to get everyone pumped. However, you can opt for more low-key games as well. One of the best ways to get your guests interacting with games is to have a Super Bowl pool. Have your friends and family wager who will win and what the final score will be. At the end of the game make sure to have a small prize (a gift card would be great!) for the person who had the closest prediction. The game options are endless! This site has plenty of great Super Bowl party games if you need any help or inspiration!

Whether you decide to go all out for your Super Bowl party or throw a low-key party, make sure to enjoy the game and the time you spend with your friends and family! Hopefully your favored team wins and if not, there’s always next year!
