Building Fall Family Memories with Mattel Games

There’s no denying fall is a busy season, it’s speeding by so fast! Yet, among all the hustle and bustle of the season, are you remembering to press pause and connect with your family?

It’s easy to get lost in the many activities happening right now, without really slowing down to embrace the season and have some fall-family bonding time. With cooler weather settling in, we spend more time indoors, and that means making a concentrated effort to unplug and connect.


Mattel Games has tips to help you spend quality time with your family this fall season:


Start Traditions

It’s never too late to create new family traditions this fall season. One of the best ways to create a tradition that ensures your family is spending quality time together, rather than just being in the same room together, is to play a game everyone will enjoy. Fun and interactive games like Card N Go Seek and Bounce-Off {we love this game!} offer an exciting and engaging game that your family will be excited to play. Try breaking out the same game, or dedicating a game “time” at your next fall family gathering and make it a tradition for the years to come!

Take Photos

Your family is growing so quickly sometimes its hard to even see the differences right in front of you. This fall season make sure you take plenty of photos from Thanksgiving to Halloween. Capture your family at these various points to not only take a photo, but also capture the memory for years to come. Also starting the tradition of taking family photos on special occasions like Halloween and Thanksgiving will create happy memories that your family will be keen to capture year in and out. It’s a great time to start your Month in Photos if you haven’t already!

Plan Ahead

Just like the beautiful fall colours, the season will be gone before you know it! Try planning ahead this fall season to squeeze in all your family’s favourite fall activities. Check pumpkin and apple picking seasons in advance to ensure your local patch or orchard are open and for how long.

One to One

While spending time together as a family is important to build memories, one to one time is equally important. Make sure you take time to bond with your little ones individually. From baking a pie for Thankgiving dinner, to throwing the ball in the backyard your little ones (and you!) will have precious memories of the quality time spent together.

Keep it Manageable

While it can be tempting to totally overload yourself this fall season from creating the perfect homemade Halloween costumes to making everything for Thanksgiving dinner from scratch, try not to take on too much. Too many on you to-do list will leave you feeling stressed, rather than focussing on family time. Don’t be afraid to lighten the load to ensure your spending quality time with your family, and building memories for years to come!

No matter how you decide to bond with your family this fall season, don’t forget that taking the time to build memories now, will bring your entire family happiness in the future, regardless of where life takes you!
