I hardly ever set New Year’s Resolutions because I’m just not good at thinking that long term. I feel like if I do set them, I will just be setting myself up to fail. I do like the idea of starting fresh though!
I’ve decided this year I’d like to try something fun. I saw an idea last year that I thought was pretty cool. The person took 1 picture every single day of the year. The picture summed up something that was happening that day, and at the end of the year they could look back at all 365 days of pictures. Cool right? I’d like to try something similar this year but I’m going to do 365 Days of Play. Since I stay at home with A, we are together and playing A LOT. Don’t get me wrong, I wouldn’t trade it for anything, but some days I feel like the things we do get a little stale. I am hoping to find 1 new thing each day for us to do together. Here is how I would like it to go:
365 Days of Unplugged Play
-Each day after nap time I will have an activity planned for A. It will be something simple we can do around the house. It will not be expensive or take a lot of time to set up or clean up.
-The activity won’t involve TV or the computer. I think both of these things have value but in moderation. A likes to look at pictures of dogs on the computer and she likes to dance along with the Fresh Beat Band, but we keep screen time at the minimum over here.
-I will update about once a week on here with what activities we did and post a few pictures.
I am really looking forward to this challenge. I’m a little anxious about coming up with 365 different things for us to do but it’ll be fun to push myself! I like to do creative things with A, and she always appreciates the effort, so we’ll see how it goes. I am also open to any suggestions you’d like to send my way for what fun things you like to do with your kids that are low cost and unplugged. Wish me luck and Happy New Year!
