Family Activities provide parents with opportunities to engage children in fun experiences that are both meaningful and educational. Family Activities are similar to traditional lesson plans in that they (a) provide directions, (b) describe materials needed, and (c) identify ideas that children could learn from the activity. Family Activities often provide parents with discussion topics aimed at getting children to think critically about the experience. It is not important that children have "correct" answers during a family activity. Our goals are to provide children with rich learning experiences, to encourage them to be thoughtful about those experiences, and to enjoy time together as a family. Enjoy!
