5 Intentions for you (and your kids!) + 50 ways to do them!
New Year - New You? We don't think that's necessary! You are FABULOUS! How about New Year - New Intentions? Yes! This year we haven't made resolutions, we have new intentions to bring our family closer, more peaceful and enjoy the time we have together.
Our 5 intentions are :
1. Play every day
2. Try something new every day
3. Be active every day
4. Read every day
5. Do something as a family every day
Here are some ways we hope to achieve this every day - in some new ways. For example, maybe on a Sunday the way we read together will be the recipe for cookies while we spend the day baking? Maybe you can try something new by going to the park together and giving the monkey bars a go (this is play, trying something new, being active AND doing something as a family!).
Talk about your day - everyone must ask and answer 3 questions minimum
Go for a swim
Have a family bike wash - everyone washes their bikes together
Build a secret fort out of towels, sheets and blankets. Put in some pillows and relax!
Spend some time asking each other questions - what's your favourite animal, if you could have any food right now what would it be, what's your favourite game to play with Mum... take the time to REALLY get to know each other and learn!
Well. There are just a few things to do together this year to help encourage your family to enjoy the time they spend together.
What do you do with your family that makes you feel close to each other?
