To help you get the most out of your kid time, we teamed up with McDonald's to give you a list of eight ways to spend more quality time with your favorite people.
Take a nature walk! Taking a half an hour or so to walk in nature is definitely worthwhile. Use the opportunity to talk about their week or have them collect their favorite flowers or rocks.
Change up the typical dinner routine by grabbing McDonalds and setting up a cozy indoor picnic for the fam. Feel free to get creative and include games and coloring pages with your picnic.
Speaking of dinnertime, use the time to get your kids talking! After the usual dinner topics (What did you do a school today?), ask more open ended questions to keep the convo going.
Do a craft day! Crafting is not only fun, It’s also a great way to repurpose materials, like using a McDonald's Happy Meal® box to make a mini play house!
This year, take a day off from work to step into their world and volunteer in their classroom. You’ll get to interact with your kid’s friends and teachers and get a taste of their day-to-day.
After you’re finished reading all the books on your bookshelf, change up the routine by incorporating puppets or even writing an original story with your kids.
Take your kid on a date! Go out for ice cream or take them to coffee (and get hot chocolate for them) or go bigger and take them to a concert. Whether you go big or small, the point is to have fun.
Try out you and your kids’ green thumbs by starting a little vegetable garden together. You and your kids can make a habit of watering the plants each week and watching it grow.
