Inside: This seven-day activity challenge for busy families is designed to inspire parents to spend 10-15 minutes each day doing fun activities with their children.
This is it.
Your life. Your work. Your family. Your kids.
It’s not a grand rehearsal.
You don’t get to do it over again once you figure it all out.
Your kids are only going to be little once.
One thing most parents come to regret is not spending enough time with their kids before they grow up. And it isn’t just about spending time in the same physical space with kids but giving them undivided attention and having fun while doing it, what scientists call quality time. In fact, 63% of parents regret not planning more activities with their children.
Each day kids take another step in the direction of needing you less. With each breath they take, they are growing bigger, stronger, smarter until one day you will look at them, tears in your eyes, as they stand by the door, suitcase in hand, all ready to go to the South Pole with National Geographic to study skua.
Or think of a Thanksgiving dinner in twenty years. What are your kids going to remember best about you? Will they have a big supply of memories of all the fun things you did together?
In my interviews with busy parents, the main obstacles they list in planning a fun time with their kids are usually lack of time, energy, money, or know-how.
What if I said you don’t need much time, energy, money, or know-how to bond with your kids? What if I showed you exactly what to do and how to do it?
I invite you to join me for a seven-day Fun-With-Kids activity challenge. It’s free.
For seven days, you will do a simple, short-but-fun activity with your kids every day. As a busy homeschooling parent, I favor activities that are not only fun but also are highly educational. So not only you will be bonding with your kids, you will be boosting their IQ, too. Win-win-win!
Are you ready to start?
All you need is 10-15 minutes a day, the commitment to do it, and some things that you probably already have around the house.
Is this a challenge for you?
➡ You are a busy parent who worries about kids growing up too fast and wants to connect with your kids through fun but easy activities.
➡ You want to spend quality time with your kids, but you need some fresh ideas because you are tired of the same old pretend tea parties, pushing Thomas down the trucks, and playing Chutes and Ladders.
➡ You have tried many activities in the past, but you were bored to tears. You wonder if you can bond with your kids through activities that are fun for you too.
➡ You are a homeschooling mom who is so committed to phonics practice, math curriculum, and giving your kids everything they need to succeed in life that you need to slow down and just enjoy the kids.
➡ You are new to doing activities with kids and want simple instructions.
How to get started
- Click HERE for the list of supplies and a daily email for seven days in a row.
- Go over the list of supplies and check your house for missing ingredients. Order them online or buy at the store.
- Do each activity. Check it off as you go!
- (optional) To stay accountable, share your pics with me on Facebook (or in a private email to [email protected]) so I can send some encouragement your way!
Sometimes we all need a little push to start something new that will benefit us.
Taking part in a challenge is a great way to jumpstart your motivation and commitment.
All of the activities work best for kids aged 4-12. If you have some younger kids (as I do), they might (or might not) enjoy the activities in this challenge, depending on their personality and level of maturity.
Regardless of where you live, how many kids you have, your age, your occupation, or how busy you are, this is the perfect time to do the challenge.
Make the next seven days much more fun!
P.S. Or you could skip the challenge and be jealous of the other moms who are having fun with their kids 🙁
