Just the other day my children approached me about having a family day. Lately, we all have been on the busy side with school, homework, work, and after-school activities that we haven’t had some fun with the family in awhile. I can’t blame them for feeling this way because we really have been on the go lately with not much time left in a day to do anything fun. It was such a beautiful day it was warm and sunny so when my son and daughter asked, I couldn’t say no.
That is when I told them that I just purchased new kites for them and I was going to surprise them because it’s something that they wanted to do for a while now. Needless to say, they were pretty smitten over their new gift!
They could not wait to visit a nearby park to run with their new kites but there was a problem, there was no wind. I decided to take them anyways because the strangest things do happen. -And guess what? It did. The wind picked up so quickly and the kids couldn’t have been much happier. It truly is funny how things do work out in the end.
Before our adventure began, we needed 3 Must Haves For Our Family Day.
The first thing I grabbed was Fruit Shoot® Juice Drinks and here is why. If you have children like mine then you already know what they will ask for when they get hot from running around. A drink. We all hear that:”Mom, I’m thirsty”from our children. I believe as parents we hear it often enough so packing Fruit Shoot® ahead of time makes things so much easier to have on hand and ready for them to drink.
Have you heard of Fruit Shoot® before? These re-sealable cap drinks are made with real fruit juice from concentrate. I really love not having to worry or deal with any messes since the Fruit Shoot® Juice Drinks have re-sealable caps. They come in a variety of regular and no sugar added flavors and the best part, they contain only 20 calories or less and have three grams of sugar. They’re also free of artificial flavors and high fructose corn syrup, so moms can feel good about buying it for our families.
Some of our favorite flavors are:
• Apple (no added sugar)
• Berry Burst (regular and no added sugar)
• Orange (regular and no added sugar)
• Strawberry & Raspberry (regular and no added sugar)
• Wild Berry Grape (no added sugar)
Another must have for making our family day fun is the weather. It truly plays a big part with enjoying the outdoors doesn’t it? The last thing you want is the weather to put a damper on your day so make sure you plan ahead before heading out the door.
Lastly, bring along some of their favorite outdoor toys, sporting gear or even a kite like we did. Kids love being active with their families so put down those cellphones, enjoy the weather together, but most of all capture these memories, and savor all the belly laughs you can get.
It’s so important for children but especially for parents to encourage them to discover a sense of an adventure. As for us parents, combining a fun activity not only draws them away from the television or handheld gaming console but it gives them freedom to be carefree.
