connect 5

Tuesday, October 25, 2011

Sometimes the simplest moments with your children at home, are the best!  Here are 5 easy ways to connect with your child today:

  1. Bake!  Bond while measuring ingredients, sifting and stirring your way to a tasty outcome.  It’s a great way to catch up on their day and share a yummy bite.
  2. Read!  You can read to your child or they can read their own material while you read yours.  Grab a blanket, sit next to one another on the couch and enjoy quiet together time.
  3. Go for a walk!  If you have a dog, suggest a family walk… or to look at the leaves changing colors, or to enjoy the cooler temperatures.  The exercise and fresh air is great for everyone and wonderful together time.
  4. Clean!  Were you thinking about organizing a closet or going through the toy box?  This may not sound like a fun way to connect with your child, but working together to achieve a family accomplishment is a great way to bond & build family team work. 
  5. Get silly!  Helping with homework?  Make up funny acronyms or games to help them learn.  Or, have an indoor picnic for lunch.  If it’s in between mealtime, put on a selection of everyone’s favorites music and dance.  Turn up the fun factor… both you and your kids will love it!
