Feeling down? Turn"the Blues" into Family Fun

无论您的家人是从无忧无虑的假期中过渡,还是要度过意外的全球性大流行,“冬季忧郁症”都是真实的事情,而且据我们了解,一年中的任何时候都可能发生。不要让悲伤带给您全家福。结合好玩的家庭仪式,以帮助缓解过渡,使丑陋的面孔变亮并使您的家人更加亲密。 Here are some ideas.

Hold a family cooking competition. Team up and challenge each other to make a dinner or lunch item using holiday leftovers. Stipulate what foods have to be included in the creation. The winning team gets to choose dessert.

Have a hot chocolate party. Whether you include friends or just your family, create a DIY hot chocolate station featuring candy canes, marshmallows, candy sprinkles and whipped cream. Cozy up by the fire and enjoy!

Family playing a favorite board game.

Build in transition time. 即使您刚刚从度假中回来,也不要在没有安排几天休息时间的情况下立即跳入例行工作。尝试启动一个孩子们期待完成的项目,例如拼图游戏,飞机模型或工艺项目。

Reminisce. 收集每个人在最喜欢的假期或假期中拍摄的照片,并帮助您的孩子制作数字幻灯片或相册,以与家人和朋友分享。或打印照片的副本,然后让孩子们制作自己的剪贴簿。与家人一起度过美好时光。

Send good cheer. 如果您的孩子已经有一段时间没有见过他们了,他们可能会想念他们。鼓励他写自己喜欢的活动或画一张画,描绘他们一起做的有趣的事情。然后帮助他邮寄给您的亲人。

Craft an art party. 与家人一起度过一个令人沮丧的下午,成为丰富多彩的艺术派对。收集美术用品,例如油漆,美纹纸,水彩画,闪光,彩色胶带,珠子,纽扣,胶水和画笔。互相挑战以仅使用可用材料来创作艺术品。

Plan an outing. Get active with your family. If you're at home, play Frisbee in the backyard or watch a kid-friendly exercise video. Prefer to go out? Go roller skating, bowling or ice skating. Find more ideas at www.追号DiegoFamily.com/out-and-about/over-600-things-to-do.

Connect with nature. Give your kids a list of scavenger hunt items to look for on a nature hike. Take pictures of birds you spot, animal tracks and winter foliage, or collect pinecones.

Play games. Play a favorite classic board game or test-run a new video game your kids received. They’ll love teaching you how to play and you’ll get a better idea of how the game works.

Schedule a pajama party. Make appetizers, popcorn and warm beverages, and spend the day in your pajamas watching family-friendly movies.

Envision your next vacation or outing. 列出您想在社区或其他地方访问的地点。为您的精通技术的孩子分配不同的位置进行研究。让他们回答以下问题:营业时间,入场费用,位置,附近的餐馆,一年中的最佳时间等。将您的发现保存在“家庭出游”活页夹中。

Fulfill a hoped-for experience. 如果您的孩子收到了音乐会,电影,游乐园或体育赛事门票等体验礼物,请在学校开学后立即安排该活动,以期在未来几周内给他们带来期待。

Be spontaneous. Are most Saturdays spent on household tasks and chores? Surprise the kids by doing something out of the ordinary, like going to the park or 追号 Diego Zoo.

Set intentions. 在返校的第一天,以特殊(但简单)的庆祝活动来纪念这一天。在返校的蛋糕,松饼或肉桂卷上点蜡烛。鼓励您的孩子在学年下半年许愿,然后再吹蜡烛。

在我们朝着多个方向发展的社会中,悠闲地闲逛在一起花费很少。您在时间上的投资回报将为您带来红利,从而带来一个更幸福,更亲密的家庭。
