Family is everything to us. With the movement control order (MCO) ensuring that everyone is home, we now have more time than before with them at home. While the bread-earners continue to work from home, family time is equally as important. 

Many people wonder if they will eventually run out of things to do together and start grinding on each other's nerves. Family time should be fun, not tedious. So here are a few good ideas:

Watching movies together

Watching movies is one of the things that everyone enjoys. A variety of interesting films or shows are readily available on television. What's more fun than watching a movie? That's watching a movie together as a family. 

Providers like Netflix, Iflix, Astro, Dim Sum and other online channels are among the most used today. Spending time with family by watching a movie, while eating ice cream or popcorn, is a great way to strengthen relationships.  

Cooking and baking

Making biscuits and cakes or cooking lunch and dinner can be fun activities for the family. This is the time that you can show your cooking skills in the kitchen or try out new recipes for your whole family. At the same time, you can teach your kids how to cook as well as prioritise healthy menus.  
  

Playing video games 

Playing video games is very exciting, especially for men. Fathers and sons will be able to bond over the latest games, which can be found online. You won’t feel the clock ticking when playing video games. This will help families from venturing outdoors, which is a good thing during the MCO.

Eating at one table 

Given our busy schedules, families tend to eat apart from each other in these modern times. However, the MCO has allowed the family to eat together finally. Use this time to talk about fun things and share parts of your lives that your siblings or parents miss out when you are with your friends. Eating home-cooked meals together can bring about a harmonious family. 

House cleaning

A clean and tidy home ensures a healthy and cheerful family. With the family all together, maintaining the cleanliness of a home can be more challenging. But on the flip side, more hands make light work. Turn it into a game, see who can clean the rooms the best and the winner gets a prize. For example, an extra helping of ice cream,

Moreover, reorganizing furniture around will provide a new atmosphere and environment for the family.
