Enjoying Family Time Together

By December 6, 2013

Follow me on:

We're zooming toward the end of the year already. It's so easy to get caught up in all of the shopping, meal planning and family visits. But there's still plenty to do with your little ones as thoughts of Hanukkah, Christmas and New Year's Eve take over our days.

Savor your family time with 10 activities you should do with your kids every day. We're often so busy getting ready for the holidays, we end up spending less time with our children in the days leading up to them.

The 31 days of December give you plenty of opportunities to spend quality time together, though. Some activities allow you to teach them valuable life lessons too.

My kids and I always make a trip to the toy store to buy some gifts for the less fortunate in our city. This is a great way to show your kids how to help others through donations of money, goods or even your family's time.

This is that time of year when everything seems to be moving at warp speed around you. But I've learned my kids don't care which activities we do together as long as we block off that time that's just for us. They're just as happy when we pile in the bed to read a book as they are when I fork over loads of cash to take them to an amusement park.
