30 Day Challenge for FAMILY TIME

Time is slipping away and I feel as though we are not spending enough time together having FUN. So I announced yesterday that we were going to start 'Family Time' again and the boys were soooooo excited, especially Danny as he has fond memories from times before.

Speaking to other families, we have noticed across the board that the families that are close knit and enjoy each others company are the ones who have taken the effort to implement 'Family Time' each day.

So we have decided that November will be the month that we will instill the new habit of Family Time. There are all different ways of having this time together, but there are a few general guidelines that we stick to:
  • Set time of day for Family Time - It is 5pm for us
  • Length of Time - half an hour to an hour for us
  • Rotation of each family member having a turn to choose
  • Have lots of FUN and SMILE even if you don't want to :o)
 Marco (our 4 year old) chose our activity for today and he quickly ran to pull out the Lego box. We built emergency vehicles, a shop, a toilet block, a pyramid, etc.. we all had a great time.

So what have you done so far for 'Family Time'? Let us know below in the comment section.

Blessings from our home to yours.
