Family Time Challenge Day 3: Kids' Choice!

Posted by   + Show Post

Are you the one who usually plans your family's activities? Today's challenge is to step back and have your kids plan the next family outing! Let the kids be in charge from start to finish and watch how proud they are to be in the lead.

Here are some suggestions:

  • Set a budget and geographical boundaries.
  • Let your kids pick the place and plan when you need to leave the house.
  • Tell your kids they are in charge of packing snacks.

Have you ever let your kids plan the family activity for the day? Do they seem more into it if they are involved in the planning? What are some of their favorite places to go as a family?

One mom who participates in all 10 days of the challenge will be entered to win a $50 American Express gift card!

 sort of. I put a calendar together (updated often) of free and low cost stuff to do. I will let the kids chose what to do on the calendar.

I usually have pictures of different activities and the kids will pick that way. If it is something big, we just plan it and the kids will c when we get there.

My dd just turned 5 and the last two times we let her pick where to go she chose the park and Chuck E Cheese.
