My daughters are 3 and 6, yet I am amazed at how quickly the time has flown by. Life is so busy and I’m not sure about you, but I know that I have to be intentional about setting aside time to just be with my kids. Every day I set aside some time to just be with the kids with no agenda…sometimes I lay on the floor and they play on or around me, other times we read books, do a craft or bake together.
Each week we also set aside one evening to make homemade pizza and have a family game night. This has really become something I look forward to with anticipation each week.
We also try to get away for a little family getaway twice a year. We do not usually go far, but it is a time where we go just to be together and not have an agenda. We recently got back from one of these little getaways. They had a 3 level play structure built for the WHOLE family, now that is my kind of fun! You can see my hubby way on the top level of this photo.
I made a little video of our family having fun together, I smile whenever I watch it because spending time with family is the best investment I know I will ever make! (It is only the second video I have ever made, but like I said, I love it).
What are some of your favorite family activities?
