Happy International Family Day (which also happens to coincide with Pizza Party Day!)!
This year have fun celebrating family day at home with these 5 fantastic activities for the whole family to enjoy.
Why not get creative with the little ones and paint!
Give each person a canvas and some paint, and challenge yourselves to paint your home, your favourite scenery or a picture of each other!
It’s a great way to bond and bring your creative side out as well.
Watch A Movie
Have a movie marathon or pick your favourite childhood movie to watch with the family.
We love Shrek and Space Jam too. Pop some popcorn and get watching!
Did you know that watching a movie with your kids has these surprising effects:
- Promotes academic success – children who spend time with their parents tend to do better in school
- Boosts self-confident – as your family watches movies together you become closer which in turn improves your little one’s self-confidence and self-image
- Increases trust among family members – as simple as it is, watching a movie together provides a sense or protection and warmth for the whole family. This is a great way to bond that everyone will enjoy!
Do you live to eat? So do we!

Play Old-School Card Games
Remember those days without technology?
We use to play card games to keep busy for hours. Some of our favourites were Go Fish and Snap!
And what a fantastic opportunity now to be able to teach and play these with our kids.
Need some ideas on old school card games? Head over to QiDZ here for a full list.
Whether you want to read a story to your little ones or share a story from your past, Story Time is a fantastic way to connect with the family as well as develop your little one’s brain, social skills and communication skills.
Celebrate Pizza Party Day today and make pizza at home. You can find an easy pizza recipe on QiDZ here.
