They say it’s the most wonderful time of the year, but for parents, it can be hard to embrace that sentiment. The holiday season is more analogous with a mounting to-do list. There are so many parties, activities, shopping, elf moving, decorating, cooking, school functions, magic-making, and wrapping that makes this “wonderful time” straight-up exhausting. And, at the same time, most parents treasure this time, especially when our children are young. Even the smallest of gestures to be present with your children goes a long way!
Download the Strider Family ADVENTure Calendar and start your countdown.
Whether it’s on a bike or around a board game, we know being together with the people you love is part of what makes us happy and healthy. We created our Strider Family ADVENTure Calendar to encourage families to take a moment out of their busy day to intentionally be together. Each day of the calendar gives a family activity. We kept it simple. You will need very little supplies or planning. Most activities are short and can take as little as 5 minutes. We know it won’t be perfect. It won’t always go smoothly. Heck, it might not always even be fun (who ACTUALLY enjoys playing games with a toddler??). But, it will definitely be worth it. Sit down with your family, show them the calendar, and explain that over the next twenty-four days you will countdown to Christmas by doing something a little special together. Who knows, maybe it really will feel like a wonderful time again (at least parts of it)! We’d love to see you together with your family.
