Thank you to Nintendo for providing many of the items for this post, Summer Family Fun with Nintendo Switch. We also like to give our money to Nintendo, too!
Our family enjoys many games and activities on our Nintendo Switch. With so many of them able to have 2 or more players, it’s a great way for us to all play together.
Some of them even allow for our entire family of 6 to play together. Needless to say, it can be loud here! We have quite a few family favorites and we are adding to our list always.
Some of the games are only for one player at a time, but can still be made into a fun family experience, too.
Nintendo Summer Activity Calendar
This summer, Nintendo put together a Summer Activity Calendar packed with fun Nintendo activities the whole family can enjoy. From family dance offs with Just Dance 2021 or a family photo scavenger hunt in your yard that is inspired but New Pokémon Snap, there is sure to be some great family fun to be found.
And while this calendar says June on it, the activities definitely can be played on any day of the week. If you want to have your own copy, click on the picture and grab the pdf version.
A little Super Mario Monopoly is always good fun…we just had pizza before!

You can also take your Nintendo fun away from the screen with Aquabeads Animal Crossing : New Horizons Character Set which allowed the girls to create a ton of different Animal Crossing characters.
Or have fun with stickers with the Super Mario Official Sticker Book. Yes, we love stickers here and will use an activity book all day long. In fact, sticker and activity books make for good car fun on road trips.
