How to Create Memorable Moments with Family
Aug 26th 2020
When families spend time together, they invest in the well being of their relationships and strengthening the bonding between family members. These are the many ways to create memorable moments with the family!
A Family Tales
It’s very important to strengthen ties with extended family as well such as grandparents, uncles or aunts. Children are often obsessed with family history, tales from the family tree, and experiences in a world when they did not exist. Assign a day when elders can come to visit and have everyone sit in a circle, sit around together, and listen to stories. Give everyone a chance to talk. It’s the best way to create stronger ties and memorable moments with family.
Don’t forget to serve the family's favorite beverages and a couple of treats to share with family members on this occasion. One traditional treat that's a must-try is Denmark’s well-loved butter cookies. Small but flavorful, Danisa Butter Cookies are made from authentic Danish recipe for an utmost delicacy. The irresistibly buttery and delicious taste come from high-quality butter and other finest ingredients baked to crisp and rich perfection, making it a perfect companion for quality time with the family.
Family Movie Day
Set a day to watch one of each member’s favorite movies. Load up a bag of popcorn, snuggle comfortably and let the movie do the magic! There’s something about movie nights because it creates opportunities for the family to bond, improve relationships, and create memorable moments.
Create a Family Art Project
Let the creativity flow! Gather the creative supplies and start an amateur mural or arts and crafts like origami-style cardboard flowers. The collective artwork is long-lasting and is one of the most memorable moments for the family to experience together and always look back upon.
A Book Discussion with the Kids
Make reading more fun! Read books with the kids, discuss the characters and hold a question-and-answer session. This is not only a fun activity but also manages to keep the kids focused and mentally present.
Eat Together as a Family
Sitting down for a family meal (whether it's breakfast, lunch or dinner) has benefits for both kids and their parents. Sharing a meal is an excuse to catch up and talk, a time for parents to listen, as well as to give advice and encouragement. Attentive listening conveys a message that a person is interested in another. It also imparts a sense of worth and helps develop trust and create memorable moments with the family.
There’s no limitation to the idea of making memorable moments with the family. The goal is to have an enjoyable time together where everyone is bonding through activities and interactions. The more face-to-face interactions the better!
