Random Family Home Evening activity ideas

We recently had an activity in the ward where we went through the different aspects of a Family Home Evening. The Young Men President and Young Women President ran the activity portion, and they had a handout with some ideas for Family Home Evening activities. There were no details provided on any of the suggestions. Some of these could be directly tied in to a lesson, others would just be for family fun. Most of them are self-explanatory, but if you want more details, you can do a search online and I’m sure you could find specifics.
