A nice way to spend the evening with your children is table games.
if you have children with different ages organise them in group and play with them. It is so nice to play together, to take the opportunity to spend some time with them . In addition you can also organise with them a performance of theatre. You can invent with them a plot. Try couple of time , then draw the tickets and make the presentation for them. It will be a quite and exciting evening .
