Top things to do with your children:

  1. Play outside: go to the playground, ride a bicycle, take a walk in the woods, toss or kick a ball together, jump rope, hopscotch
  2. Build together: build with wooden blocks, Legos, play doh; make forts inside and out; do puzzles
  3. Play games: board games, cat’s cradle, jacks, paper airplanes, tag, hide and seek
  4. Do arts and crafts: paper, glue, yarn, clay, paint, and everything else you can think of!
  5. Read together: books, magazines, signs
  6. Establish a daily wakeup and bedtime routine and schedule; in the first week, plan to use that schedule once; every week after, add one more day following the schedule.
  7. Establish a technology schedule (e.g., when and how long to use devices); in the first week, plan to use that schedule once; every week after, add one more day following the schedule.
  8. Talk to your kids everyday about any subject they like. If you can’t get your kids to talk think of asking them some funny questions. We love this list.
  9. Set aside time to play board games as a family. That opens up opportunities to enjoy conversation, it also teaches important skills like taking turns and being generous when you win or loose a game. No one likes a sore loser. No one likes a person that gloats either!
