1. Fun Families Plan Adventures Together
The key secret to fun families is that they don’t put off trips and special activities for “someday.” Instead, they sit down and plan their adventures together, making sure to include every member of the family. Even if your kids offer unrealistic ideas, you can always work around them and find an activity that is as similar and realistic as possible. Empowering your kids by including them in the planning process is a smart way to build excitement and make them feel special. What can be better than that?
2. They Celebrate the Little Things
Where’s the fun in saving all festivities for big holidays and birthdays? Find excuses to infuse your day-to-day life with small and silly celebrations. Play Monopoly on Play Monopoly Day, have movie night Thursdays, and Sunday picnics. The reasons can be anything, it’s the joyful moments you’ll create that matter.
3. They Make Work Feel Like Play
It takes a lot of determination to tackle household chores like cleaning and cooking with a party spirit. Yet, that change in approach can infinitely improve your daily life. You can ignite the spark of cooking into your kids or they might develop a love for taking care of your house plants. You never know until you’ve tried. To set things in motion, you can try a “laundry party” to see who’ll manage to find and fold their clothes first, or you can do a “pizza night” where instead of ordering takeout, you teach your kids how to make it. Not a bad idea, eh?
