A Family Who Plays Together Stays Together: 5 Ways to Create a Playful Home!

As moms, we're so busy trying to do a good job raising our kids, we sometimes forget one of the most essential ingredients of creating a happy home: laughing and having fun together. Here are a few ways to create more lightheartedness, laughter and playfulness in your home!

  • Embrace your playful self daily. Play doesn't have to be complicated. It's about how we show up. Let your hair down, be silly, play music. Have fun whatever you're doing. 
  • Try humor. The next time you're stressed try something different – start to dance. Humor can be the best medicine to lighten things up! 
  • Schedule play. Block your calendar for an activity everyone will enjoy. 
  • Be contagious. When your having fun your family will want to join in! 
  • Pick one thing that can add more fun and play into your daily life!

This is so important, Sheryl Gould ! But often overlooked when we get caught up in the things we "need" to do. Great reminder! Going to have to pull some of my jokes out of retirement the next time I see my kids. Knock! Knock! :-)
