Making your own fun family videos

Are you looking for something super fun to do as a family this weekend? Well look no further! Because I’ve got a treat for you. In this post I’ll give you loads of ideas to make your very own fun family videos!

Making your own fun family videos. Being silly as a family has many great benefits you don't want to miss out on!

First off I want to remind you that making your own home videos are supposed to be FUN! Especially when there are kids involved! This activity is not meant to deliver a professional looking end result at all. As long as everyone has loads of fun you can count it as a huge success!

Being silly is just part of being a kid and for some reason lots of grown up have grown out of their silly genes. It’s such a pity! There are so many opportunities for us to win over our kid’s hearts just by playing the fool!


Being silly with our kids has so many great benefits!

  • As parents, we set the emotional tone for our family. When we initiate and take part in being silly with our kids, we model to them that life is fun, joyous and happy!
  • When we act silly in front of our kids we also show them that it is ok to be vulnerable in front of each other and there is no judgement in the house. It creates a safe space for kids to be who they really are and want to be.
  • Studies have shown that laughter really is the best medicine! Laughter relieves stress and releases happy hormones. And silliness almost always end in laughing.
  • Being silly together is an out of the box type of activity. It encourages creativity.
  • Being silly together as a family also strengthens the bond you have with your kids. When your kids enjoy spending time with you, they will go to great lengths to stay close and connected.

Without further ado let’s look at making your very own funny family videos.

Now I know some of you are already panicking, because you can barely figure out how to take a proper photo of your kids! The most important thing I want you to remember, is the aim is to make a FUNNY video. Not a professional, nice looking, well lit, shareable video!

It must be super fun to make, and hilarious to watch back and that’s it!

What do you need?

A camera.

Seriously that’s all! Don’t over complicate this! No editing software necessary! No special equipment! No tripods or gorilla pods or lights!

Just pick up the phone or camera and… ACTION!

Making your own fun family videos:

First off, have a heated discussion about the type of video you want to make. Just kidding!

Brain storm some ideas with your kids or pick one from this list:

  • Make video of everyone in your family pulling the funniest faces they can.
  • Re-enact a funny scenario as mimes.
  • Film your kids telling bad jokes.
  • Does your family love music? How about you record your own music video? Put the song on the stereo and film everyone as the song plays. See who can invent the funniest dance moves.
  • Pretend that you are on a family cooking show where you have to cook something that tastes terrible.
  • OR have a family cook off and film the whole thing.
  • Hold a worst dressed runway show.
  • Pretend to be Charlie Chaplin on video.
  • Do a make up tutorial where your kids get to do your make up.

That’s all there is to it!

Here are my top tips for making this a super fun family activity:

  • Take turns being the one behind the camera. If your kids are old enough, they will love being in control of the camera or phone.
  • Let your kids decide what type of video they want to make. Remember, the sillier the better!
  • Keep it simple the first few times. If you keep it simple, easy and short, you will want to do it again and again and again.

Sometimes the best part of this activity is watching the video at the end. It will definitely put everyone in a laughing fit over and over again.

Being silly with your kids is one of the best gifts you can give them! So go have some fun!
