As mid-summer comes upon us, are your children getting bored? I really don’t like that word, and my kids know it. I hand them something to do right away when that word spews out of their mouth.
If your children are struggling to entertain themselves or get creative, it may be time to start finding ideas that the family can enjoy together without breaking the budget! Here are some simple and free ideas for bonding time with the kids!
SIMPLE AND FREE IDEAS FOR BONDING TIME WITH KIDS
I write for Homeschooling with Heart Blog and wanted to share with you some ideas we’ve used over the years to intentionally spend quality time with the kids. It’s essential we sit down for a few minutes a day just to talk and find out how our children are doing. Life is too short, and our kids grow up too fast.
Am I right?!!
In a blink of an eye, they will be out of our home. It’s up to us as parents to find ways that encourage bonding time. Sometimes, you have to get a little creative. It’s easy to hand them a tablet or phone and tell them to go play. But, it’s not what’s best for them. They need your attention, mama.
When the kids were younger, I remember giving them their own special days. It helped us keep track of who got the front seat or pick a movie. It also helped me focus my attention on the “child of the day” and give them a little extra love. Tell them stories about you growing up, kids love it!
Here I share my favorite ways of spending quality time with the kids in the summer. Hope you enjoy!
