Have a Family Night In!

Staying in is the new going out, so gather the gang (and some good food and games) on Saturday, November 6, when Family Circle sponsors its first-ever Family Night In. We've got dozens of ideas to get the party started.

Be Crafty


Make your memories last by creating a scrapbook. With a few key materials from a craft store (a scrapbook or blank album, glue, and accessories like decorative-edge scissors, colorful paper, and glitter), you can share your family's story and personality in a fun and easy way. Collaborate on the first two pages and then let each person decorate his own page with movie tickets, artwork, or other mementos. Add stickers, write captions, and let your inspiration rule. Don't forget to dig out old family photos as well as newer ones, and include snaps of you and your husband as teens—the kids will get a kick out of Mom's and Dad's funny clothes and hair.
