PLAY WITH YOUR KIDS



Since the act of playing with your kids brings immediate and lasting rewards - isn't it time to

put the fun back into your family? To do so you'll want to begin by doing things you enjoy, like

baking cookies or building model airplanes.  If you enjoy the activity, you and your family will

have more fun doing it together.  The K-I-S-S method works in this instance - that's keep it

simple!  If your fun turns into work, you'll be less likely to continue it.  If you think back to

childhood memories you'll no doubt find that the simplest things made you the happiest. 
 
So, simply shoot baskets together as a family, ride bicycles, play catch, go on a picnic, walk along a stream, or go fly a kite.  Believe it or not the sillier you are at times, the better the kids will enjoy some "giggle time. When normally straight laced type parents get goofy the kids love it!  Don't be afraid to let your hair down a little. 
 
It's been known for a long time that card and board games encourage camaraderie and friendly competition.  Kid will love it if you'll take time to share one of their games with them.  Good old standbys like Monopoly and Scrabble are always winning choices.  While you have simple fun with the games your kids will be building their language and math skills. 
 
Turn your household projects into play with your kids.  Instead of fretting while painting together, don old clothes, use plenty of drop cloths, and let the splatters fly.  Sure you all may be wearing some paint when you're finished, but I bet you'll also be wearing grins! 
 
How about a late night flashlight walk with the family - chase fireflies and sing songs as you go.  Whatever you do, just be sure to check your family fun level from time to time, asking - are we having fun yet?
