• Game : Family Talent Show

    We all have gifts and talents and this month, we will be showing them off. Sometimes people may need courage to get in front of a group and perform their talents. Having a Family Talent Show will encourage everyone to see their uniqueness and have fun doing it. Pick a night to have a Family Talent Show, be sure to include everyone. Set up a stage area, decorate it, make snacks and get ready for a night of talents! Grandpa may play the harmonica, Mom can teach everyone how to knit, Dad can tell jokes, your Aunt may sing a song, you could show off your skateboarding skills and even the family dog could show off his roll over skills. Have fun, encourage each other and cheer one another on. It takes courage to get in front of people, you can do this as a family and will have fun doing it.

  • Outing : Finding Courage

    Scavenger Hunts are a lot of fun. You need critical thinking skills, a sense of adventure and courage. This month take your family on an adventure Geocaching. Geocaching is a real-world, outdoor treasure hunting game using GPS-enabled devices. Participants navigate to a specific set of GPS coordinates and then attempt to find the geocache (container) hidden at that location. Sign the logbook and return the geocache to its original location. You can download the Geocaching app and be given clues to caches near you. Have fun together figuring out the clues and finding “treasure”.
