How to Make Your Floor the Centerpiece of Fun For Families

How to Make Your Floor the Centerpiece of Fun For You and Your Family

We partnered with Clorox® Scentiva™ to open up a world of possibilities for fun in your own home.

Your floor: while we may take it for granted, the humble surface is always there for us. It ties your home together — it's where memories are made through different stages of life and what holds you up when you need support. And, if you give it a little thought, it's a place where family and friends can have unexpected moments of fun, especially right now when we need it the most.

In order to keep your floors thriving so you can get the most out of them, use Clorox® Scentiva™ Disinfecting Wet Mopping Cloths to keep them clean, germ-free, and smelling amazing. When used as directed on hard, non-porous surfaces, they kill 99.9 percent of bacteria and viruses — including the COVID-19 virus*. Plus, they're safe to use on multiple surfaces, and they prevent bacteria growth for up to 24 hours. A win-win for your toes and your nose.

Date Night In

Since you may not be able to go to your favorite restaurant for date night with your partner, bring the experience home! It's super easy to put together a romantic setup in your own living room. Lay some cozy blankets and pillows on the floor, grab some fresh flowers, and make a spread of your favorite appetizers. Think: an epic charcuterie board or homemade bruschetta. You could even make an activity out of it and shuck your own oysters to create a raw bar. Or if you really want to bring the restaurant to you, order in from your go-to date spot.

You could dim the lights, listen to a romantic playlist, or queue up a movie or two. Whatever you decide to do, snuggle up and remember to enjoy each other's company.

Craft Social Hour

We're all in need of extra creative outlets right now — one way to get the artistic muscles flexing is by trying out new crafts. It could also be a way to let off some steam and get in some social time with friends (safely, of course) or family. Perhaps you try something you've never attempted before like origami or candle making. All you need to do is create a crafting station on your floor, with something like newspaper spread out for protection if needed, and set up all your tools. You could even buy a kit or watch YouTube tutorials for some inspo!

Family Playtime

Despite the fact that we're all spending so much time at home, between school, work, and the upcoming holidays, everyone in your family is probably feeling a little burned out. Plan an evening or lazy weekend afternoon for everyone to come together as a family and spend a few hours bonding over fun games. You could open up the domino set and play something like Mexican Train, or dust off the old deck of cards and play a few rounds of different games depending on everyone's skill levels. There are always classic board games to fall back on, like Clue or Monopoly.

You could also lean into something a little more interactive. Try building a supercool fort out of pillows, blankets, and cushions, or set up a scavenger hunt around the house — and don't forget about the tried-and-true game of hide and seek to get everyone in the family involved!

Daily Workouts and Meditation

Since you're likely not heading to a gym or private studio anytime soon, if you're a person who needs a daily workout class, carve out some space on your floor to move. Whether it's through streaming yoga classes, Instagram Live workouts with your favorite trainers, or moments of silent meditation, it's important that you roll out your mat and give yourself time to get in tune with your body.

Impromptu Dance Party!

No explanation needed here — sometimes you just gotta dance it out! Turn up the tunes, grab a hairbrush mic, and boogie down, baby.
