Making Family Time More Fun Together

As an energy ambassador for Together Counts I get to share fun ideas to get families moving and fun ideas for family crafts that make meals together even more meaningful. Now I want to share them with you! If you aren’t familiar with Together Counts check out their website here or read my post about why I love working with them. Balance is one of the main goals of Together Counts and last spring I wrote about how to help teach your children to find balance in their lives. Something that isn’t always easy for kids or parents. Another goal of Together Counts is to get your family moving together. We know that as our kids age this might not be as easy as it is now. Our favorite family fitness activity are hikes in the nearby forest. As anyone with little kids knows a fun family hike can quickly turn into being 2 miles into the bush with a screaming banshee. This post about how to make hikes fun for everyone is one of my favorites and hopefully useful for your family too. Moving together is important but making sure that kids are moving at school is too. In this post I shared some of my favorite simple playground games to play no matter what equipment your playground has. At Thanksgiving I got to get back to my familiar style and shared 10 Terrific Turkey Crafts from blogs all around the web. If you are looking for fun crafts to make during family time check out the blogs I linked to in the post because they are hands down some of the best on the web for craft and early education ideas. My favorite post though was this one about how to spark conversation at dinner by making plates with conversation starters on them. They are so simple to make and a fun way to keep your family talking around the table.   You can find all my posts and other great ideas for your family on the Together Counts Blog.       The post Making Family Time More Fun Together appeared first on No Time For Flash Cards.
