Like a wise man once said ‘How can we not talk about family, when family is all that we got.’
Parents are the number one support system, they are the building blocks of every family and the glue that holds everything together. Let’s celebrate Parent’s day this entire week and have a fun family bonding time. Thank you parents for your sacrifice, commitment, and selfless love.
We praise moms for their endless and unconditional love but we must not forget the other half of the equation. Dads are just as important and contribute with their time and support every chance they get. Together, moms and dads, make up the parental figure that every child looks up to and learns from every step of the way.
Spending time with both parents can help your child develop better emotional intelligence and understand the real meaning of having a family. Look back at your memories with your parents and remember all the moments you saw your parents together, preparing a meal, watching tv, teaching you a new skill, and how happy they looked and made you feel.
Now that you are the parent, you should instill in your children the same feelings and let them have those precious moments to look back on. While these memories can and do happen without planning, putting in a little bit of effort to create fun family moments makes it even more worthwhile.
You can start by involving your kids in the journey of redecorating the house with new pieces for the house. This will help them tap into their creative side and get a sense of attachment towards the house because they helped make it what it is now. Redecoration could be for the living room, the kitchen, or even the kids’ bedrooms!
If your house is all decked and doesn’t need redecoration, then it’s time for some family skincare fun. Explore different mask options to create at home and apply for you and the kids. You can also opt for ready-made masks and simply enjoy a fun movie night while your skin rejuvenates and becomes healthier than ever.
Another fun family activity we guarantee the kids will enjoy is game nights! This could be left to the kids to choose from or the parents can guide and give options. Spend this precious time creating new masterpieces with some arts and crafts, building new designs with blocks, and learning new skills.
While these are all great ideas for in-house activities, sometimes your kids can feel too confined to the house and will need an outlet. This is where you should take family fun days outside the house. It might seem difficult trying to provide your kids with an enjoyable time without having to burn under Dubai’s summer sun.
