Unleashing Creativity: Fun Activities for Creative Families

Being a creative family is a wonderful way to bring joy and inspiration into your home. From exploring the outdoors to learning new recipes, there are many fun activities that you can do together to unleash your creativity. Here are some ideas to get you started and insight into things my daughter and I enjoy doing together:

#1. Hiking and Exploring the Outdoors

Exploring the great outdoors is not only a fun way to spend time together as a family but can also inspire creativity. Whether you go for a hike, nature walk, or camping trip, you can appreciate the natural world and all its beauty. It’s a great way to get some exercise, fresh air, and also appreciate nature’s wonders.

#2 Art Projects for All Ages

Art projects are a great way to unleash your creativity, and they can be enjoyed by people of all ages. You can choose to paint, draw, or do crafts together. There are plenty of tutorials online for all skill levels, and you can also visit a local art supply store for inspiration and supplies. Creating art together can help you express your individuality and create something that is uniquely yours.

Art is an activity that I have been doing with my daughter ever since she could hold a paintbrush. It’s a fun activity that has led to us publishing “Mrs. Fox Teaches Kindness.”

#3 Playing Board Games for Family Fun

Board games are a classic creative family activity and can provide hours of fun for all ages. There are countless options to choose from, and it’s a great way to spend an afternoon or evening together. Board games can also teach valuable skills such as problem-solving, critical thinking, and communication. Whether you choose classic board games like Monopoly or try something new, board games are a great way to enjoy family time. 

We love playing board games in our house. It gets pretty competitive but it’s friendly. 

#4 Writing Stories and Poetry

Writing is a wonderful way to unleash your creativity, and it can be a fun activity for families to do together. You can try your hand at writing stories or poetry together, and it can be a great way to explore your imagination and share your creativity. You can also take turns reading your work out loud and providing feedback and support for each other.

In my household, we enjoy reading as well as writing. This year it is a family goal to do more of it. 

#5 Cooking and Baking Together

Cooking and baking are great creative family activities that can also teach valuable skills such as measurement, planning, and healthy eating habits. You can try out new recipes and experiment with different ingredients. It’s a great way to learn about new cultures and encourage kids to try new foods.

#6 Visiting Museums and Watching Movies

Visiting museums and watching movies together can also be great creative family activities. You can learn about history, culture, and art, and spark discussions about the world around us. Watching movies together can also provide inspiration for new ideas and stories to create.

Visiting Museums and watching movies is something that Gia and I have been doing for years. It’s really about spending quality, appreciating art, and creating memories. 


In conclusion, being a creative family has many benefits, and there are endless possibilities for fun and creative activities. Whether you explore the outdoors, create art, play board games, write stories, cook and bake, or visit museums, being creative as a family can bring you closer together and create wonderful memories that will last a lifetime.
