Frugal Family Fun – JUST DANCE

I know many families schedule a Family Game Night – either once a week or every other week.  It’s a great idea for quality family time in an otherwise hectic schedule. For this week’s Frugal Family Fun post – I thought a Family DANCE Night would be a blast!

We got the Kinect for Christmas (along with Just Dance 3) and I know lots of folks that have the Wii.  Using these gaming devices would make for a super easy way to get your Dance Party set up – but even if you don’t have those – all you need is a radio or CD player.

We actually did this a couple weeks ago at a friend’s house and the kids (and us moms too!) had a BLAST!  Turn the house lights on low, turn the music up, and make sure EVERYONE gets included.  Not only is it ALOT of fun, it’s also a great workout 🙂 You can dance all together – or make “Rounds” where two-three people dance at a time and then you take turns.

For your dance party – I would suggest FUN finger foods and you can find these on sale at Publix this week:
