Family Activities
(for Ages 16-18)

Build Gingerbread houses.

Go fly a kite. If you want to build it from scratch, get a book at the library or look up instructions on the internet.

Take turns writing on a roll of toilet paper (jokes, messages, stories, experiences, etc.), then deliver it to a friend who could use some encouragement.

Plan and prepare a special family night for a number of families, complete with a lesson, games, and treats.

Decorate a basket or vase, then fill it with wild flowers. Place the flowers on someone's porch who needs cheering up. Leave an anonymous note with some words of encouragement.

Make a meal for the missionaries.

Have a family history night. Learn how to do family history research or to write a personal history. A great resource is a local genealogy club or a family history center located at select Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints buildings (free).

Visit a friend in the hospital. Make get well cards from construction paper. Write original poems, funny verses, words of encouragement, etc.

Go to a church party, activity, or show.

Build paper or balsa wood boats and have a race down a small stream.

Depending on the size of the river or stream and the local ordinances, raft, canoe, or tube down a river on a summer afternoon.

Visit a cemetery. Read epitaphs, observe art and architecture, imagine aspects of the deceased persons' lives. Talk about your own ancestors. Please be respectful of other visitors.

Go to your little brother's awards ceremony for scouting. This would make him feel very important. Treat him to an ice cream cone afterwards.

Pick wildflowers and take them to a shut in. Spend time to visit.

Bake homemade bread. While it's baking, play games. Then spread a blanket out on the floor and eat the bread with butter and honey while it is still warm.
