Back in 2011, Kristine decided to upload a video of her twins getting ready for bed for friends and family to see. A week later the video had over one million views. Now, Kristine and her family are fulltime YouTubers with close to 10 million subscribers on their channel: Family Fun Pack.
This channel is family-friendly and features mom Kristine, dad Matt and kids Alyssa, David, twins Zac and Chris, Michael, and the youngest, Owen. Oh, and their aunt Heather and two golden retrievers, Kona and Hana. This fun-loving family has videos of all sorts, placed into a few different categories: Mommy Monday, Family Fun Pack Cooking and Recipes, Skits, Vlogs, Hawaii, Fitness, Sports and Athletics, Popup Museums and Couples Talk.
Both Kristine and her husband are kind, loving, nurturing, silly parents who clearly love their children and want what’s best for them. They encourage them to be creative, to play, to enjoy musical instruments and to love learning.
On camera, the siblings don’t get into many tussles, but a few are featured. Other than that, these kids might not love that they’re all over the internet the older they get. But only time will tell.
Raising kids has glorious moments … and sometimes difficult or frustrating ones. Parents can get tired, even discouraged at certain points. So the value of a fun, activity-filled channel like this one is to provide ideas and inspiration. And it’s clear that Kristine and Matt have lots of both to share with their millions of viewers.
