Tips, Tools, Tricks, Tries and Traditions for Families

This is where it gets quite a bit vulnerable and raw...here are things I have tried and have triumphed or tanked, or, most likely, have landed somewhere in between. I am a firm believer in throwing around a million ideas with the hopes that surely one will be a good one, and...for goodness sakes, let's find fun whenever and wherever we can! 

Weekly Family Rituals
  • Meal Planning

  • Chore Chart

  • "Dessert Friday": Rather than having candy and treats all throughout the week. we go big on Fridays! This is an opportunity to be in the kitchen together and learn how to bake and create new desserts.

  • Family Game Night This builds collaboration skills, laughter, healthy competition, and teamwork

  • Family Dinners As busy as our schedules can be, prioritize time around the dining table together as a family. This is an opportunity to press "pause" on life to connect with one another

  • Date Night Specific and intentional 1:1 time with mom and child, dad and child, and mom with dad

  •  Read and Feed Choose a book series to read aloud together as a family. Pop some popcorn, bake some cookies, and enjoy!

  • Fondue Party We have a fondue party while watching the movie following reading book together...Ex: We read a Harry Potter book, then watch the movie together before reading the next book in the series

  • Family Show Choose an age appropriate show series that you watch together...Survivor has been, American Idol, Stranger Things (with our teens), Secrets at Sulphur Springs, Gilmore Girls..just to name a few that has been fun for us.

Holiday Traditions

Birthdays

  • Birthday Waffles: Funny Face waffles with candy, fruit and whipped cream, on the morning of their Birthday
