Happy Labor Day!

I encourage you to use this Labor Day as an opportunity to make a fun memory with your children.  Do something out of the ordinary and unexpected—be a silly mom!

  • Prepare flying family flapjacks—don’t serve them on plates, but toss them to the kiddos and they have to catch them with their plates.
  • Challenge your children to a game of hide-and-go-seek.
  • Enjoy a hairbrush microphone singing contest.
  • Have a picnic at a park, in your yard, or even in your living room.
  • Play a board game.
  • Make orange juice floats (vanilla ice cream and OJ—yum!).
  • Teach them how to speak pig Latin.
  • Have a family dance-off.
  • Pull out some old photos and tell them stories about your childhood or what they were like when they were babies.
  • Have everyone wear their clothes inside out.

Okay, stop reading and go have some fun! If you try one of these ideas, leave a comment and tell us what your kiddos thought.
