This year we have been staying close to home for much of the winter. It’s nice to have a more relaxed schedule, and enjoy cozy nights as a family! But the challenge is making sure there is plenty for us to do together.
A few years ago circumstances forced us to dial our lives back to the basics. We were very limited for an extended amount of time, and it has truly reshaped us as we have moved forward. As we are slowly getting back into our new normal routines, the new-found piece of wisdom that I am bringing along with me is that sometimes less really is more. Simple is much easier than chaos and complicated. And family time is too precious to ever give up! We have traded in a lot of our activities for more play time together, and have found dozens of ways to simplify our lives.
I’ve learned that we truly will never know what tomorrow will bring. Our relationships can not be bought. And you can never make up for lost time. So…. before it goes any longer, or life gets any fuller, I would encourage you to start making your family time a priority.
Crank the music up, turn the TV off, and enjoy some inexpensive, quality, family time!
Even if your kids range in ages. There is always something fun that you can all do together. Start with activities that the youngest can enjoy. Once their attention span is up, or it becomes their bedtime, you can move up the ranks and switch to a more challenging activity or game.
Below are a few suggestions to help you get started:
These are just a few suggestions to help get you started. But no matter what you do, I promise that you will enjoy the extra family time!
