You don’t always have to travel by plane to make memories with your kids. Recently, we’ve started biweekly Travel From Home nights where we visit a new country through food, games and music.
My kids (4 and 7) look forward to these nights each week where we make something special and delicious from the country, listen to a playlist, and play a (new to us!) family game from the country! Current favs: Portuguese Chicken (kids AND husband cleaned their bowls!) and playing a simplified version of Jogo da Mahla in our hallway!

Final note to let you know that this only requires minimal prep work. I tried to find simple recipes with easy to find ingredients. The games are all ones that can be played with very minimal items (chalk for the France one! a bottle and coaster for the Portugal one!)
