A popular and fun thing to do for both kids and adults alike is to have a Saturday Night Activity. It can be a long process or it can be a short activity, depending on how you plan it out. It can be just a few minutes of playing with your child or maybe you want to spend a few hours in the kitchen cooking and decorating for a potluck. The idea behind a typical activity is that you as parents are trying to encourage your children to use their imagination and creativity so that they can create something fun to do with their friends and family. It should really start with the whole family and then graduate to the guests. It is a great time to bond together.
It is a common misconception that a night activity has to be a work out or math class. This isn’t always the case. You can have a long story marathon and make it fun for everyone to do with some creative prompts at the end. There is no right or wrong answer. As long as you are all in agreement on what the end result should be then you will be successful. You will probably wind up having more fun if you take a few moments to break into song while telling your story, which can also be a great activity if you as well.
Remember that your children need to be kept entertained and having fun no matter what. When they are bored they tend to get into trouble and this is why you as parents need to keep an open mind so that you can help guide them in the right direction. If you don’t feel that you can do it on your own than enlist the aid of a friend or neighbor who does understand this type of thing. If they do this on a regular basis you should see that your son or daughter will not only learn to enjoy but they will grow up with a set of skills that can last them a lifetime.
