Sometimes even though a family is in the same home they may be feeling disconnected.  You might have loved ones you have not seen in a long time and your children miss them. This week we are sharing with you some ideas to help connect with those you love.

  • Go outside and find something that reminds you of someone you love. Share this with them.
  • Thank 3 people you are grateful to and tell them why.
  • Choose a favorite song(s) and enjoy a spontaneous dance party.
  • Design and create a musical instrument from items in your home. Enjoy sharing them with a concert.
  • Write thank you notes/texts to people you love telling them how they have made a difference in your life.
