Your Family Plan for the New Year

In our busy day-to-day lives we can sometimes feel disconnected from our families and maybe it feels like everyone in your family is moving in a million different directions. That's where our Family Plan comes in. Use it at the beginning of the year, or maybe even at the start of each month or week to connect with your family, and to get on the same page and make sure that this important time with your children doesn't get lost in the hustle and bustle.

Let's Go for a Scavenger Hunt!

This time of year there are so many reasons to get outside, and one way we can get our kids on board is to go for a scavenger hunt! A scavenger hunt is easy to create and can be customized to any age, theme and place (it's a great incentive to bring your child along on a family walk). The rules are simple: Scavenge for the items on your list, the person that finds all items first (or the person who finds most items when the time is up) wins. You can do this with just your kids/family, or as...
