Something I’ve always enjoyed is hosting parties or special events for my friends and family. Thankfully, with three young children and a large extended family, I have the opportunity to get my party planning fix on regularly! I get to host big, elaborate birthday parties, holiday celebrations and fun theme nights in with my family.
And honestly, as much as I enjoy the intricate planning and implementation of a large party, some of my favorites over the years have been the simple ones with just my husband and kids. Now that I have more free time, I’m happy to say that we do these fun family nights at least once a month.
While I do love coming up with ideas and new experiences for our family nights, sometimes it’s nice to just relax and enjoy my family’s company. This is where Family Night Rescue Kit comes in handy. I was introduced to this concept by the owner and I was very impressed with her passion for providing families with ways to connect through turnkey, themed family nights.
Our family used the Egypt Family Night Rescue Kit and loved it! Prior to receiving the box, I was slightly concerned some of the content would be too complex for our family with such young kiddos (5 year old twins and a 3 three year old). I’m happy to report that was not the case and all the materials and activities were easily able to be aged appropriately for our family.
We received the tastefully branded package and my kids were eager to dig in! Included were recipe cards, dress-up materials (with ring pops and tattoos that my kids went crazy over), conversation starter cards, trivia cards, activity and informational cards, treasure hunt supplies, bookmark stencil activity, hieroglyphics game and pyramid building game.
Once we gathered the rest of the supplies needed for our family night, we started the evening out by dressing up, using ideas from the informational cards provided. Then we began making the Egyptian appetizer and the dessert from the recipe cards.
Our kids love working in the kitchen with me and we had fun getting messy by rolling the falafel in bread crumbs. It was special to experience making and eating these new foods together as a family, all while using the conversation and trivia cards to share information about Egypt and each other. After eating, we broke out the games. Our favorite as a family was the treasure hunt; the kids had a blast with it!
Each of the activities and materials in this box were expertly put together and made for a memorable evening in for our family. We’d definitely love to continue using Family Night Rescue Kit and I recommend them to anyone looking for a convenient way to share new experiences and bond with their family.
