The Value of Food Coloring
With the explosion of social media there is an overwhelming amount of information on how to have fun and create fun family memories. From blogs, like this one, to pinterest we have no excuse to not have creative family time. We just have to make the time.
There are two types of fun that need to take place because they serve two different purposes. The first is spontaneous fun, this is the type of fun that breaks routine. We gave an example of this unexpected fun with the story of the water balloons earlier this week. It can even be something like having a themed dinner, picnic on the floor, dinner at the beach or the park on a weeknight, or even as simple as stopping for an ice-cream off the dollar menu to celebrate a Tuesday.
The other type of fun is scheduled fun. This is setting aside time to have fun together as a family. A great example of this is a family game night. Family game night can do a lot more then just fun. It can help to teach a child how to have fun with competition and how to win/loose appropriately.
Make it a habit to have moments of spontaneous and scheduled fun at least once a week.
