Holiday Challenge

Has the electronic monster stolen your family? Is your family spending too much time in front of the TV, computer, or video games? Are family members cloistered in various parts of your house only to come out for food? Or are you lost in the day-to-day stress and forgetting to create what most of us long for, deep connections with our families.
 Holiday Family Feet
Do you want to create some cherished memories? When you look back at the time your children spent growing up, the fun things you did together will stand out as delightful memories and reinforce bonds with those you love. The hours you spent watching a screen will pass into oblivion. So push aside some of those activities that keep you all so busy, and make room for quality time with family. Store up the memories now that your family will be talking about for the rest of your lives. If you make quality family time your priority, you will be amazed with how quickly your family will bond, become a team and have fun together.

Choosing family activities that everyone will enjoy can be challenging. Finding family activities that are fun and educational requires considerable effort and creativity. So we have done this for you. We have selected 25 Challenges for you to do and you will get them sent to you once a day for the next 25 days. While nothing can guarantee every activity will be a big hit with every member of your family, you will increase your odds by making an effort to do as many of these challenges as you can.

Your challenge is to do an activity EVERYDAY before the holiday. Set aside at least one block of time during the day to spend quality time with your family, and guard it like it's Fort Knox. Most of the Challenges don't require massive amounts of time or materials.

Try to do each Challenge with the entire family. However, do not force anyone to participate. Use an INVITATION ONLY policy!

Our family will be doing some of the challenges with you. I will be blogging about how it went for our family. Please share your experiences  on our blog, Linkedin, Facebook, and Twitter also so we can all learn how to make our families feel more connected! Make sure you check you email tomorrow for your first challenge...it's a fun one!
