One way to ensure that each member of the family will enjoy family time is to include their suggestion for your weekend adventure or activity. A creative way to compile a list of ideas for family time from everyone is to create a Family Time Suggestion Bottle and fill it with ideas from your family. Each week pick out an activity from the bottle for your family to do together. It’s very easy to make. Here’s what you’ll need:
Empty Juicy Juice Bottle
X-acto or scissors (Parent task or supervision is recommended)
Stickers, glitter, markers or any other craft decoration of your choice
Construction paper cut into squares.
Have your parent use an X-acto or a pair of scissors to cut a slit in the side of an empty Juicy Juice bottle then use sandpaper to smooth out the edges.
Once the edges are smooth. Use stickers, glitter pens or other crafting materials to decorate the bottle.
Don’t forget to keep pieces of construction paper handy so that everyone can write their ideas down and stuff it in the bottle! The slit created on the side will make it easy to put in and pull out suggestions. Keep the bottle on a bookshelf or counter for not only a visual reminder but convenient access. Enjoy!
