My kids are young and enjoy family night, no matter what we do. I know that as kids grow older, scheduling time that everyone wants to be part of gets difficult. I feel like setting aside time just to connect with each other is essential, so do the folks at The Company Store.
The Company Store is a home and lifestyle brand celebrating their 100th anniversary this year. They have created an initiative to encourage families across the USA to participate in National Family Pajama Night™, a fantastic cause-marketing campaign.
What is National Family Pajama Night?
National Family Pajama Night™ scheduled for Saturday, November 19th. Sometimes it is easier to schedule a night when the whole family can be together. We our hectic schedules, family night won’t happen unless we do. National Family Pajama Night is a time to relax with your family, have fun together, and create fun childhood memories for your kids.
Fun Family Activities for National Family Pajama Night
Sometimes it is hard to think of activities for family night that goes beyond movies or boardgames. The Company Store is making it super easy and fun for you to find the perfect fun family activities for National Family Pajama Night. Every day until November 19th, they will offer you an “Idea of the Day” to Facebook fans and Twitter followers.
So far, here are the first National Family Pajama Night Ideas.
- Arcade Night – your family creates and plays a variety of games like ring toss, paper cup stacking, etc. The winners get prizes.
- Family Skits – Fill a bag with possible props, split up and each team creates a skit. Video tape it, play it back and award prizes.
- Bag of Laughs – Each family member writes a funny task on paper and put in bag. Each person then selects a funny task to do. Examples are whistle a nursery rhyme while jumping on one leg, imitate another family member, pretend to be the family pet and talk for it. The last bag is a family prize to enjoy together.
I can see my family enjoying doing all 3 ideas so far! I can’t wait to incorporate some of the ideas even before November 19th. I will save my favorite idea for the official National Family Pajama Night.
How to Participate in National Family Pajama Night
Basically, all you have to do is schedule your time together and have fun. Pledge your family’s participation, find fun memory making ideas, post your own ideas for National Family Pajama Night on the National Family Pajama Night Facebook Page.
The Company Store and Company Kids have one goal in mind for National Family Pajama Night:
Our goal in creating National Family Pajama Night is to encourage families to put the focus back on each other, by creating memories that strengthen family tie.
To make it even better, once The Company Store hits 20,000 pledges, they will donate $20,000 worth of family pajamas to a not-for-profit organization that gives pajamas to kids in need. What an incredible, generous idea! By strengthening your own family unit, you can give help to other families in need.

Matching Family Pajamas
I can’t resist telling you about The Company Store’s incredibly adorable family pajamas. I’m a sucker for matching clothes for my kids and coordinating my family’s wardrobe from time to time. I especially like the idea of having matching pajamas for Christmas – we always open presents and take tons of photos in our pajamas on Christmas morning. Their Festive Plaid Family Flannel Sleepwear or their Reindeer Plaid Family Flannel Sleepwear would be just perfect for my family. They even have pjs to include your family dog and even your daughter’s baby doll.
