Doing fun things together as a family helps create good memories. It is also a time when you and your family members can learn more about each other — your personalities, your preferences. The over all result is that you actually build a better and stronger relationship with each other.
Here are 3 fun things for families to do: 1. Explore nature. There are several things to do together involving nature. This can be a short hike in the woods, going to the beach, visiting a nature park or even the zoo. If the children are old enough to do even a short mountain climb (or maybe a hill climb? 🙂 ), you can also do this. Camping even in your own backyard can be a lot of fun for the younger kids.
2. Play music. Yes, you can play musical instruments together or should we say, learn to play music together. If there’s a keyboard or two from akai professional at guitarcenter.com, then that would be a lot of fun for the musically-inclined members of your family. Add in some singing and even dancing together and it will be a cool fun time that you and your kids will remember for years to come.
3. Watch movies. You may go to the cinema together with loads of snack food as well or prefer a more relaxed time at home, watching movies from the comfort of your own living room or entertainment room. You can be intentional in choosing which movies would best benefit everyone in the family. To encourage communication, you can even end this movie time together by asking them what they think about the movie. You can also ask what they like about the movie as well as which parts they didn’t like. Follow this up by asking them why. Make sure that everyone has his/her time to answer, including you and your husband.
