Sunday Funday is one of the most important days of the week, and it's even more special when you spend it with your family. So here are some ideas for how to make Sunday Funday an epic day that everyone in your family will love.

Go Outdoors as a Family

Going out with your family on a picnic is a great way to spend time together. You can pack your favorite snacks, sandwiches, and beverages (or even go out for ice cream!) Then you'll be able to enjoy the outdoors while getting some fresh air.

Picnics are a great way to spend the day outdoors with your family, whether you go for a hike or have an outdoor picnic. You can even try having games and activities that will be fun for everyone.

Before going on a picnic, it is essential to research the area you plan to go to. This way, you can make sure everyone is safe and has fun while also knowing what to expect from your location of choice.

If going out for ice cream isn't an option or if the weather doesn't permit it, there are other ways that you can still have some outdoor time with your family. For example, a day at the park will allow all members of your family (from toddlers to older children) to get outside and enjoy themselves in various ways, such as swings or slides. You could even pack games like Frisbee or soccer balls so that they're ready when playtime comes around.

The great thing about spending time outdoors together is that many activities do not require much preparation. However, if you plan to hike or play some games outdoors, preparation is essential. You can even visit the escape game to partake in a family adventure game session and have some intense bonding moments over a thrilling adventure.

Before going on an adventure, ensure that every family member has appropriate clothing for whatever weather they might face. If it's cold, warm layers are ideal, as well as hats and gloves to keep your little ones cozy during their time outside. For summer days when it can get hot very quickly, you should always wear sunscreen and light clothes that will allow airflow between each other, so everyone doesn't become overheated by wearing too many heavy items.

Partake in Games

Games are a great way to get the family involved. It can range from playing a board game, watching a sporting event, or going for ice cream together. There are countless options for games, and there is no reason why you cannot find one that fits your lifestyle.

Playing games is not only fun for the family, but it also gives everyone a chance to bond through laughter and conversation. In addition, each game is different, so there are opportunities to learn something new about your children or partner while having an enjoyable time together.

Family games night doesn't mean you need fancy board games; in fact, you can play many of these with objects that you already have lying around the house.

Bike Rides

Bike rides are fun to get out of the house, explore new areas, and stay active. Start by mapping your route together with your family before you head off on a ride. Then, try exploring trails or parks that are new to everyone for them to be more exciting. You can even plan rides around certain distances or periods so that there are mini-goals throughout the journey, which will make it easier for children to maintain their focus. 

Ensure each person has their bike helmet when riding with young ones. This is essential safety equipment; consider cycling helmets if anyone in your family does not currently use one! If there are hills along the trail, ensure all members of your party are prepared with food and water to keep their energy up. Another tip is to make sure the route you decide on will not be too busy or unsafe, as this can affect your entire experience. The best part about bike rides is that they are an excellent opportunity for family bonding.

Exploring at Your Local Library/Museum

Exploration is another excellent way to have fun as a family. It can also teach your children some new things while being active at the same time. If you want, ask them to write down some of what they learned or heard on their tablets/laptops so that they can retain more information and share it with others later.

Another significant part about this is that it encourages kids to read books more often. If there's an event going, chances are good they will be holding workshops for specific age groups or helping in different ways.

Have a Tradition To Stay In and Cook Your Favorite Meals

Staying in and cooking is the perfect way to spend time with family on Sunday, and it is also a way to do something with your food.

Home-cooked meals are always better than takeout, but they can be time-consuming and difficult for busy families on the go. Fortunately, some great recipes will have you cooking up delicious dishes in no time at all.

Here are just five of the most favorite easy-to-make family meal ideas:

  1. Oven-baked chicken strips - You'll never believe how yummy these oven-baked tenderloins taste until you try them yourself. The best part? They are so simple to prepare. Just mix breadcrumbs, Parmesan cheese, dried parsley flakes, and salt & pepper. Then coat each piece of raw chicken with the mixture.

  2. Tasty tacos - Tacos are a great way to get everyone's taste buds excited. You can use ground beef, pork, or even turkey meat (or another meat) as well as your favorite tortillas and fillings such as cheese, lettuce, and tomatoes.

  3. Yummy noodles - This easy pasta dish is another time-saver that will have you cooking up delicious meals that taste like you spent hours preparing them. Just boil ravioli until cooked through, then drain it while reserving a bit of the cooking water. Then add in a jar of your favorite pasta sauce and some cooked beef or sausage along with Parmesan cheese to taste. 

  4. Grilled steak - If you are looking for something more substantial than breadcrumbs, tacos, and noodles, then try this yummy grilled steak dish instead—mix garlic powder, pepper, salt & paprika to make a great meat seasoning before grilling. Serve on top of rice or mashed potatoes and enjoy.

  5. Tasty breakfast sandwich - This sweet bacon, egg, and cheese crescent ring are excellent served any time, but it also makes a beautiful breakfast before you head out for the day. Place bacon, egg, and cheese together between two crescent roll dough pieces, then bake until golden brown.

Attend Local Events

Local events are a great way to spend an afternoon or evening with your family. Your local events could include things like the circus, a theme park, or a sporting event. It is also possible to host your party for everyone you know at home.

Visit Family and Friends

Visiting family and friends is a great way to spend the day. You can see them for an afternoon or even have a sleepover. It is also an excellent time to invite friends over and play games as a family.

It would help if you spent every Sunday with your family, doing something you all enjoy. But, no matter what that may be, it will strengthen your bonds and create memories that will last forever. 

Volunteer at a Shelter or Elderly Home

Volunteering at a shelter or elderly home is a great way to spend Sunday. You can help those less fortunate than yourself while spending time with the family at the same time.

Make sure you are specific about what type of volunteering you want to do too. For example, you may wish to volunteer one afternoon every month or two months doing something like washing up for people who cannot wash their dishes due to illness. Or maybe they would prefer that you just came in regularly and cooked dinner or made them snacks? 

Your children must know where good manners come from. Your choices will depend on how much free time you have and which course is most personal for your family, so it is worth carefully committing yourself fully - there might be one cause that you want to focus on.

You may also wish for your children to volunteer with you occasionally, depending on their age, of course. It is an excellent way to learn about other people's situations and just how good they are. Also, it might be an idea if the kids volunteered together to support each other and bond over what they are doing. 

If this isn't possible, make sure that at least one of the parents is there. Overall, let them do things independently whenever possible because giving the young adults responsibilities will help build confidence and independence in later life, which will benefit all involved enormously long term.


In conclusion, the ultimate family fun day Sunday is not just about what you do but why and how it makes your family feel. Stress that this should be a fun time for everyone, so no one feels put out or needs to participate in something they don't like! Get the whole family involved as much as possible because togetherness builds bonds that will last forever.
