Family Movie Date

Printables Designed by Carisa @ Messes to Memories Exclusively for The Dating Divas


I'm a friendly gal who's obsessed with all things marriage and Hubby-related :). When I'm not having adventures with my sweetheart and baby boy, you can find me in photographer mode, deep in a Netflix binge, or crafting! I also enjoy treasure hunting (aka. thrifting), dark chocolate, and eating as much sushi as possible.

  1. We are using this for our family movie night! My little guys are SO EXCITED!!!! Thanks for these printables!

  2. Thank you for this idea!!! You did such a great job, and I can’t wait to copy it for my family. Great website!

  3. We go ride our dirt bikes and quads together. We park on a hill side by side and watch the sunset together.

  4. My boys would love this and I’d love it as well because they’d have fun doing chores to earn their tickets.

  5. our family date is always play in the park or camping or swimming. always outdoor so this is a good idea for us.

  6. This is a very cool idea and very creative too. We have recently started dedicating some fun “date” times with out kids. Always good to see fresh ideas. Keep up the good work!

  7. This sounds fun! Better than our usually Family Fun Friday where we make homemade pizza & watch a video. Do any of you creative readers have ideas for a date for a mom with her 12 year old son?

  8. My 2 little girls love to play hide and seek. My husband and I pretent to not be able to find them. We all have a blast.

  9. One of my favorites (and one we are doing this weekend) is our inside-camp-out. We make tinfoil dinners in the oven, then smores, and make our tent in the living room while we play card games. Cheap, and super fun!

  10. WE love Nerf night. We have a dozen or so nerf guns and we hid them around the house. Then we start the battle. Our two and six year olds love it.

  11. For Valentine’s Day we did Mission Fam-Possible. I created spy-related games. Like we all had nerf guns and could shoot each other and take prisoners. I strung crepe paper across a hall and we pretended they were lasers and we had to go from one end to another without tripping the laser (which resulted in owing a chore). We had a special item “stolen” that we had to recapture and the whole house was an obstacle course of pillows, balls, blankets, toys, up-turned furniture, etc. Oh, and we did the whole thing in the dark with only our head lamps. We had such a great time and once we “captured” our family heart, we ate pink heart-shaped pancakes with strawberries for dinner.

  12. Our favorite family fun night activity is actually a morning activity. Saturday mornings have become sacred lazy mornings that we protect heavily. We all curl into one bed and read books together, talk about our favorite (or not so favorite parts) of the week before having a ‘make-your-own-meusli’ bar with fresh fruit for breakfast. We work hard to have most (if not all) the chores done on Friday so that we can enjoy a relaxing Saturday morning together, even our little toddler gets excited about it!

  13. We love to play “restaurant”. I will make a menu of all our left overs and dress up silly to be the waitress. then my hubby will bring the kids in. they color while they wait for the salad and oder whatever they want from the menu. It is always a good time.

  14. We love doing fun things outdoors and also turning these date night ideas into family fun. We did a taste of India theme night and I got to teach my son about India and later enjoyed mom and dad date night. Thank you for the great ideas. I have used many in a date night ministry at church.

  15. Our favorite family activity is bike rides, strap the kids in the bike trailer & listen to them giggle. We also lovelove board games!

  16. Our favorite family fun night activity is actually our Friday night pizza & movie nights. We order pizza & breadsticks, let our 3-year-old choose the movie, & hunker down all cozy like on the couch!! A more recent favorite is a Tuesday (first 3 ounces free!) trip to our local self-serve yogurt bar. Our daughter loves that she can create her own treat!!

  17. Our favorite family activity is to go to Dollywood!! But when it is closed we love to play board games and have Family Movie nights!!!

  18. My daughter is still pretty small, but she loves to go to the park, so we try and go there as much as possible for our family fun.

  19. A new favorite for us is geo-caching – it’s great exploring and going on a treasure hunt together – although my 3-year old keeps asking where Hook is!

  20. I love our dinner nights. My kids are older so when we get together and cook together and eat together. Dessert is always fun, it usually ends up in a cake batter/icing fight and then movies and relaxing.

  21. What a fun family night! Thanks for the idea! My family loves to go camping. Whether it’s out in the dessert, up on a mountain, or even just out in the back yard – we always have a good time!

  22. This is such a fun idea! Our favorite family activity is going on picnics. We’ll go to a park where we can build a fire and roast hot dogs and marshmallows. Our little girl loves it!

  23. We play baseball in the driveway/street, just my son, my hubby and I… ok they make me shag balls but every now and then I surprise them with my skills 🙂

  24. Love the idea with the tickets! Can’t wait to try it !!! Our favorite family activities include bike riding, camping, movie nights, and playing the wii together. Another one we have been really having a lot of fun with is playing hide and seek in the dark with the kids!

  25. Such a great idea! We love to pop some popcorn, and watch a movie! We also love to make forts and play chase with our 2 year old daughter!

  26. Very cute idea! I love family date nights…we like to take our kiddos roller skating as a family and then home for a movie 🙂

  27. Love the movie night idea!!! 🙂 Our favorite family fun activity in the winter is playing board games together!! During the summer, it is taking long walks! Love being together as a family!
