Making Family Activities a Priority

Making Family Activities a Priority

Listen, it can be hard to get a whole family to agree on doing one thing together for an extended period of time. With schedules that just get busier as we all get older, a lot of people just want to have time to themselves when they have a minute to breathe throughout the week. But when life gets hectic, the best thing to do is hang back with your family and find ways to spend more time with each other. There are so many activities you can do as a family, but sometimes you have to think a little bit outside the box to find what works for you.

Making Family Impactful

Why not do something that matters more with people who matter the most? Everywhere you go there are opportunities to make an impact on your community or people around the world. For example, Habitat for Humanity enlists the help of volunteers to build and provide homes for those who are unable to become a homeowner themselves. Feed My Starving Children is a popular coalition supplying villages in Africa with the food you pack as volunteers. Both movements always appreciate more help, and they’re a good way to make family activities a priority and make a difference.

Activities Prioritizing the Mind

One of the best ways to grow as a family is to challenge yourselves together, and one way to try this is within an escape room. These facilities are designed to improve your communication, teamwork, and critical thinking skills. All participants leave the room with heightened senses and a stronger bond with whoever they came in with, making this a perfect spot to bring your family to. Plus, there’s always a room theme to make everyone happy, no matter what their interests or preferences are. Many groups enjoy casino heist escape rooms.

What Your Family Already Loves

Sometimes the best way for families to prioritize each other is right under their noses. You may think this is counterintuitive, but hear me out: family video game tournaments are the easiest ways to spend time with your family. For the times when everyone’s had a stressful week, or when the weather’s too intense to go anywhere, gaming is a good way to use what you already have to bond with each other. Parents can join their kids in what they enjoy and kids can see their parents let loose and have fun. You can play games like Wii Sports, which allows you to play against each other, or one-player games like Fortnite provide for an endurance-type challenge to see who can last the longest.

In times of stress or tension or even just exhaustion, the best therapy is making family activities a priority. Whether your family needs to serve your community together with Habitat for Humanity, or they want a bit of excitement at an escape room like EscapeWorks Denver, or everyone just needs a bit of friendly competition, do what is best for your family to grow together.

    review rating 5  Went here as a small group recently and had a great time. Instructions from the staff were pretty clear at the beginning and helpful in their instructions in explaining how to try to solve the room. Trace was a great guide for this experience and would happily go again.

  • review rating 5  Had a great work team retreat activity here. Loved the puzzles and escaping the "flower shop" (aka: 1920s speakeasy). I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a team building exercise or just wanting to have fun.

  • review rating 5  Did the "Beyond the Flower Shop" room with a group of six. The room was well thought out and very enjoyable. Challenging, but perfect for a group of beginners. Alisha working the front desk was amazing at introducing us to the storyline and walking us through how to do the game. She provided help at perfect times and we wouldn't have made it through without her. Will definitely be coming back with my group because of her!

  • review rating 5  My fiancee and I were vacationing in Denver and tried out the Egyptian Tomb with another group of 4. We escaped with 5 minutes to spare! Very good room layout and good props. Puzzles were challenging and rewarding once solved. I was not a huge fan of how they did the hints... usually you have 3 hints or whatever and you ask for a hint when you get stuck, instead they give you hints when they think you need it. Otherwise, our game master, Trace, was very helpful and personable. Overall, very satisfied with our experience!

  • review rating 5  Came here for my birthday and it was a blast! Super nice people. We did the Casino Heist and it was definitely challenging but they did give us clues along the way. Can’t wait to go back!

    thumb Samantha Kendrick

    review rating 5  We completed a team event here where we split into teams and competed to finish first. Both rooms had amazing puzzles and it was really fun. I think our company team thoroughly enjoyed both rooms. We completed The Egyptian Tomb and the Casino but one of our members in the casino team can't seem to stop mumbling numbers and math equations.

  • review rating 5  Their flower shop was quite enjoyable, and Dana delivered with a lovely performance. Give her a raise 😁I've only done one room, but it was a great time. It was a bit challenging, yet did not feel too difficult for all levels of problem solving.

    review rating 5  We did the "Outbreak" room at EscapeWorks in Denver and we LOVED it! This was my first time in an escape room and I will definitely be back. Alisha was our liason and she was SUPER helpful. What a fun night with my kids!
