Wow Summer has flown and school is now back in session. In our house that means a huge shift in routine. We now have bedtimes, wake up times, dinner time is earlier, everything changes. As school becomes the main focus family time tends to dwindle. That is one reason that I impleted Family Night when my girls were very young. Here’s a look at what our family night consists of.
- Pick a day: We chose Thursday because there’s usaully not many actitivites that day for us.
- Pick a method:We go by age starting with the youngest and weekly work up to the oldest and start over again.
- Lay out guidelines: We put a cost limit and set a few family rules that we thought were important.
- Let the fun begin: Start your family night.
We start at 5p.m. and the person in charge of picking has chosen the meal and the activity. Dinner then games, movies, or sometimes a walk. Now that you have some guidelines, try making our Family your family night and enjoy.
