Have a fun filled day outdoors, no phones allowed. Take the family out for lunch and spend some quality dining time together. Then take a walk in the park or explore local sites. Maybe take a drive to the next town, getting back home with enough time to enjoy some family movies. Do not forget the snacks, popcorn and drinks. After the kids go to bed, spend some quiet time with your partner or self.
