There’s no time like family time and these 60 Super Fun Family Time Activities will keep your family busy all summer long!
With summer right around the corner, my family has been brainstorming ideas we can do together. From outdoor family time to family crafts and games we’ve covered it all. We were inspired by Juicy Juice’s 100% Family Time Campaign which is a yearlong celebration of family moments.
Pssst…Look below for a chance to win an all-expenses-paid family vacation to Beaches Resort!
Fun Family Time Activities
Use these ideas to make a family time list of must-do things! Juicy Juice has partnered with Meredith Sinclair (one of our favorite people in the world!) who is the author of Well Played: The Ultimate Guide to Awakening Your Family’s Playful Spirit (affiliate link). This book has a ton of ideas, inspiration and techniques to get your family playing together including…
Appoint a Chief Family Time Captain
A Chief Family Time Captain (CFTC) can make sure that family time HAPPENS. This massive list, the Well Played book plus your family’s own ideas can make the CFTC’s job a cinch. Check out the printable 100% Family Time Playlist for easy playtime organization.
Win a Family Vacation…and More
Juicy Juice has launched a Nationwide search for moms, dads and other grown-ups who help find the fun amid busy schedules. To enter, adults can share a photo with a caption describing a favorite family time moment or tip (easy!). Nine finalists will receive a month’s supply of Juicy Juice and a copy of Well Played. One grand prize “Chief Family Time Officer” winner (determined by fan vote) will receive a month’s supply of Juicy Juice and the ultimate family time getaway — an all-expenses-paid vacation together to Beaches Resort!
