Host a Video Game Night
Tired of fighting with your kids to keep them off the video games? Well, if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em. At least for a night. Game systems like the Nintendo Wii actually have a lot of great family games.
How to Make it Happen
The Nintendo Wii® is perfect for an electronic family game night. Try games like Wii bowling, baseball, or the Super Mario games that support multi-player contests. Adults can enjoy these games as well. Other fun group games include Guitar Hero® or Rock Band®. Challenge your child to a guitar contest, or play together as a band.
There are also many computer software games that provide great strategic and educational adventures that you can partner on with your child.
