Grab bulk flowers at the grocery all in same color and variety; i.e. white hydrangea looks profesh, no arranging required.

Make sure to enjoy your night, too—have a fun place for kids to land.

For the kids’ table, pre-organize pizza toppings in muffin tins! They can’t break and the kids can’t fight over them.

Cook all the kids’ pizzas first so they have time to cool down before you’re all ready to eat dinner.

Turn the AC down so guests are comfortable when the oven is blazing.

If done thoughtfully, Family Night generates big fun without a big effort, especially when you come to bat with a simple, delicious recipe and some quick tips for after-dinner fun. Enter: Beef Tacos.

Definitely let the kids help set the table (so that everyone gets involved even before dinner begins!)

Grab some conversation cards—or create your own—with fun questions like, “What is your favorite vacation memory?”

Consult the internet to find a game your family will love—laughter awaits.

The positive vibes of family night and regular meals together make kids more resilient in the long-term.

Stargazing is underrated. Pull out a blanket and cozy on up.

Your morning marathon doesn’t have to be blah… give it a boost. You can still streamline your routine and enjoy a dreamy, cheesy meal that kiddos will savor too. Moods on the morning commute [or bus ride] will be that much better for it!

To that end, I offer this Cheesy Potato + Egg Skillet, made with KRAFT® Expertly Paired™ Cheddar + Swiss, crafted especially for omelets and egg dishes. With a little prep the night before, all you have to do is toss everything in the pan and season… I dare you to go back to granola bars after this!

Breakfast kick-starts your metabolism and energy output. Even better: it’s associated with reduced risk-taking behaviors 
in kids and teens.

Crack, beat, refrigerate. Did you know you can prep your eggs the night before?

Always stash a banana or orange—easy for little hands and no mess.

To create more time for breakfast, pick out clothes the night before.
