Taking time to enjoy life’s little pleasures allows people to slow down and think about everything they’re grateful for and remember what’s important.
That’s why today, we teamed up with McDonald's to compile a list of ways you can enjoy the little things with your kids.
Movie nights are one of the easiest ways to hang out as a family. Bring all your floor pillows, blankets and snacks into the living room and turn on a movie everyone will love.
Share Meals Together! This one is something you and your kids might already do on the reg, but sharing food together is seriously one of the greatest joys in life.
If mealtime is already family time, that’s awesome!
Next time you and your kids play outside, give them a handful of chalk to draw and write on the sidewalk. Encourage them to write a positive notes for other people to read as they walk by.
Spend a Saturday afternoon reading with your kids, either reading to your kids or with each member of the family immersed in their own book.
Next time you take your kids out on a walk, pluck a few flower stems to take home to add a little bit of freshness to your dining table.
As soon as the weather warms up, take a trip to the beach! Take some time to dig your feet into the sand with your kids to feel the warm grains against your skin. Remember to pack sunscreen!
Set up a little tent for your family right in your own backyard so your kids feel like they’re going on a little adventure, even if just outside your home.
If you don’t have a pet, or even if you do, take your kids to volunteer at the local animal shelter for a weekend.
Spend a Friday night playing games, whether you’re playing classic board games or a videogame that allows multiple players. There’s nothing like a little friendly competition, amiright?
Me: Family, I love you. Family: We know. (And we love you too.)
