Making Memories With Your Family
Three tips to get you started:
It has to be appropriate for their age, their gender, and their limitations. You have kids with different interests at different stages of life, so find something that all of them can take part in and have fun.
2. Choose something that involves each child.
With my children, Evan was always very interested in sporting activities, Andrea in doing something physical outdoors and Derek loved science. So, I knew a trip to the art museum, something my wife Donna and I would enjoy, was not a good option for a family outing. There has to be give-and-take and compromise.
3. Pick activities that engage the senses.
It needs to be something your children can smell, touch and see, because that’s what they’re going to remember. Try activities that will become a tradition and have your own unique family “stamp” on it. Instead of doing 20 different things, find a couple things that your family can carry on from one generation to the next.
