5 Family Night Activity Ideas for Boy Moms
In today's post, I'll share five family night activities that are perfect for families with boys.  We'll also emphasize Root Beer Floats since it is National Root Beer Float Day!

1. Cooking Night
Share a fun cooking night with your family, including make-your-own pizza or make-your-own tacos. Follow dinner with dessert. Today is a great day to have A&W Root Beer Floats for dessert. A&W Root Beer has a long history of creating family memories. My husband and I both remember A&W Root Beer Floats from when we were children, so it's fun to share this simple treat with our own children. We love that we all get to share this timeless family night treat!  Try this recipe that is child-friendly in the kitchen:

Recipe: Family Style A&W Root Beer Floats
  • 1 pint of vanilla bean ice cream
  • 1 2-liter bottle of A&W Root Beer (or Diet A&W Root Beer)
  • Optional: Whipped cream and sprinkles

  1. Let one child add two scoops of vanilla bean ice cream to each cup.
  2. Let another family member fill the cups to the top with A&W Root Beer.
  3. Let each person optionally add whipped cream and sprinkles to their root beer float.

2. Board Game Night
Let your children select their favorite board games and enjoy a fun game night. Personally, we play a lot of Monopoly! 

3. Science Night
Spend the night working on Science Experiments together. For instance, we recently spent a family night breaking open geodes.

4. Backyard Campout 
Set up a tent and camp out in your backyard as a family.  Don't forget sleeping bags, flashlights, and snacks!  Here is a fun camping recipe - the A&W Campfire Root Beer Float.

Recipe: A&W Campfire Root Beer Float
  • 1 pint of S'Mores ice cream
  • 1 2-liter of A&W Root Beer
  • 1 bag of large marshmallows
  • 1 box of graham crackers
  • 1 bag of chocolate chips
  1. Add two scoops of S'Mores ice cream
  2. Fill to the top with A&W Root Beer
  3. Top with toasted marshmallow, crumbled graham crackers, and chocolate chips
5. Create Your Own Movie
Spend time creating a movie together. Create a plot, find props around the house, pick music, and act out the story together.
