How to Plan a Family Night Your Kids Won’t Forget!
This post is groundbreaking for me folks! Here is the reason why. In our home we have a special Family Night once a week (usually on Monday). The reason why we have this Family Night is to ensure that, no matter how crazy our lives get, we will always have at least one night were we connect as a family. This post is ground breaking because it is the first of my Family Night series. From here on out I plan to share great ideas, tips, and lessons that can be used to create a wonderful Family Night that your kids won’t forget. I will post weekly, so be sure to subscribe to my emails on my home page so you won’t miss out!
I’ve already told you one reason why a Family Night is important. Here are 2 other reasons!
1. Establishing a time to teach. As parents, we know that life lessons are taught every day to our kids just in living life, but having a Family Night also gives us that one extra moment to teach our children something that we feel they need in their lives. It forces us to dig a little deeper and ponder the question, “What can I teach my family THIS WEEK?”
2. Stronger Family Roots and Traditions. Being consistent and making special time for your family each week tells your kids how important family is. It helps to establish deep roots that will last forever. I grew up in a family who had 1 Family Night a week. I don’t remember everything we learned but I remember spending time together and bonding from that time. To this day, I am very close to all of my 7 siblings and we are now passing on this same tradition to our own families!
OK! Now we get to the FUN part! How to plan a Family Night that your kid’s won’t forget! In order to get your family to WANT to jump on board with this idea, you need to make it FUN and MEMORABLE! IF you are just starting out, the first few weeks are crucial to your success. Here are 6 ways I have found to have success!
