In an effort to add some fun and excitement to our daily routine, I am looking for suggestions for "night activity" = special things to do at night with our family ages 5 thru teen. We are already playing games, crafting, etc. throughout the day so I'm looking for ideas beyond that.
Preferably things that don't require a lot of preparation on my part; willing to spend some money for activities they'd enjoy.

How about having each child think creatively during the day about something to give to another family member and go around the table and saying why they picked what they did and what they appreciate about that family member.

Do you have a yard? If so, you can purchase a small firepit and roast marshmallows, hot dogs, etc. and it’s fun to just sit around, listen to music..

You can do a Painting Party over Zoom. Its nice because you can paint together with your extended family as well.

What a great fun idea, and I love the suggestions.. I only have teens 14-20. They’re mostly girls with a boy in there. Any ideas that they won’t find babyish? Thanx so much!!

Guessing by asking yes/no questions is always good to kill some time, and works for all ages 2 and up. One person picks, the rest take turns asking questions or guessing. You can do categories, like guess the animal or guess the parsha or whatever.

If you are letting a young child be the picker, I recommend having the child tell one adult, to ensure that yes/no questions are answered accurately.
