Be the Fun Mom: 4 Creative Ways to Up the Laughter Factor With Kids!

Life can get so busy that I'd often forget to have any mid-week fun with my kids. So last year, I decided to “up” the fun factor. The kids helped me compile a list of small ways to add increments of fun to our lives. Twice a month, I surprise them with one of these activities: 

  • An impromptu hot chocolate bar after school. 
  • Teach them a game you played as a kid. My kids now love Jacks and Boggle. 
  • Have a Runway Dance Party. Set a timer for 5 minutes and let the kids dress up. Put on loud music and let them strut down the hallway. 
  • Have an at-home photo booth. Take lots of pics!

They'll laugh more, fight less and everyone will have fun!
