Indoor Summer Fun

Because not every summer day will be nice, it’s just a basic fact that I’ll have to plan many indoor activities to get us through the summer as well. So, the timing of the Redbox Summer of Fun & Games Sweepstakes couldn’t be better!

To celebrate summer fun, Redbox is asking moms, “What’s your family’s favorite video game to play together?” Plus, they are rewarding 2 lucky families with a chance to win $10,000 as part of the Redbox Summer of Fun & Games Sweepstakes.

UPDATED: I just got an email announcing a special surprise…since Redbox is launching Game Rentals today, they are giving 3 of you a chance to win 5 Free Game Rental Codes each! Join the conversation and tell us your favorite family game to be entered to win.

For us, I have found that the favorites change as the kids get older, or even sometimes as they get different gaming platforms. Overall though I’d have to say that the long standing favorites are the Lego video games, especially Lego Star Wars followed closely by Lego Indiana Jones!

So this week’s summer activity tip is creating a fun indoor day for your family to just have a blast playing games!

Put together a box filled with video, card and board games that your family doesn’t get to play often. Keeping it such a rare treat will make any rainy, grumpy or sick day a lot brighter!

With any activity, kids are going to want food, so having plenty of snacks on hand (especially if they kind of go with the theme of the selected games from the box) is a definite must.

Because not all summer days are sunny, and sometimes the kids getting on each other’s nerves, it’s nice to have a fun day planned that will be totally unexpected!

Redbox is celebrating summer family time with a great line up of family-friendly titles, awesome savings and two chances to win $10,000 as part of the Redbox Summer of Fun & Games Sweepstakes.*
