Are you looking for a creative idea for a Family Fun Night at your house?

We like to do family date nights out. Usually we will go to Chick-fil-a, a movie, or a favorite restaurant. Sometimes when the budget is tight and for a change of pace, we like to come up with some fun activities to do at home. Fondue places like The Melting Pot are pretty popular around here, but they are pricey, and are great for a date night out, but probably not so much with a bunch of kids! I thought it would be fun to give you all some ideas to create your very own Fondue Family Fun Night at home! This would be great to do for a special celebration, a birthday dinner, or just for fun!

First you will need some fondue supplies:
I prefer electric fondue pots because they are really simple and just plug into the wall. There is nothing extra needed and no open flame. You can even use a little dipper crockpot!
