Bringing fun back to family.

Our Mission:
To be the best family resource on the internet.

Launched by mom extraordinaire, Nora Matteson, as a way to brainstorm family activities, unique travel ideas, and joyful things to do while stuck at home – Fun Meme was officially published in 2020, when we found ourselves with a lot of time and not enough to do. Originally started as a personal family journal, we have now expanded to become a full fledged online publication that attracts unique visitors from across the world.
Fun Meme appeals to those who want to celebrate life’s little adventures, while also creating purpose and meaning through quality time with those we love. Nora and her mighty team of knowledgeable experts, strive to inspire and encourage each one of you to dream your wildest dreams of what fun and joy can look like in your family. We share our awesome adventures, party and activity ideas, and some home and lifestyle tips we’ve picked up along the way. We love having you on this journey!

Our Team:
Family experts, just like you!
