You know what? I kinda like that feature image. I’m going to keep it just for these last few days.
As many of us value the family time we get over Christmas, I wanted to take a look today at ways you can have a family day without everyone looking for the TV remote, their phone, or their other personal devices.
Ironically, today Mum’s back to work. But that doesn’t mean you all can’t have family days!
Bring out all those toys and games! One of the best things to do this holiday season is play a few games as a family. Whether it’s cards, board games, jigsaws, or imaginary games with your kids’ toys they got from Santa, get playing a game or two!
Go for a long walk. Okay so for years I have hated our Boxing Day tradition of going for a walk around the local park – and it’s not even a long walk! But honestly, get yourself out on a family walk. Take the new bikes or prams or rollerblades or whatever, or if you’re like us then go and see the little girl who’s just got her first big bike, or the little boy running madly along trying to get his kite to fly.
Have a reading day.
If you’re as hectic as we have been the last few days, why don’t you all grab a book and sit and read together? I know it doesn’t involve talking much, but it’s spending time together without screens – how often does that happen?
Check out what’s on in your local area! There could be a lot on in your area, or somewhere nearby! Check out websites and your local papers to see what you can get involved in – even if it’s as simple as a pub quiz down in your local.
Head to the panto! A lot of us seem to forget that these pantos and shows continue until the start of the new year, so why don’t you take a look and see if these shows are still on near you?
