Simple games are fun for kids (and parents!).

Family game night can be an inexpensive way to spend time with your kids, but it doesn’t have to mean stockpiling pricey board games full of easy-to-lose pieces and complicated rules. Instead, you can DIY these classic parlor games with minimal supplies: a dictionary, a pencil and paper, or, in some cases, nothing more than your imagination (and maybe a kitchen timer). Bonus: Bring these out at your next extended family gathering, too, to create memorable moments for all of your guests.
