UNIQUE FAMILY BUCKET LIST IDEAS
Do you have a family bucket list?
Is it enshrined in a beautiful frame on the wall next to your family mission statement?
You gaze longingly at the fun, exciting adventurous things that made the list of fun things to do before you die.
Shilagh Mirgain of the University of Wisconsin (UW) School of Medicine and Public Health says :
everyone should have a bucket list….keeping a bucket list helps us remember what is truly important regarding our own sense of self-fulfillment.
Here’s the thing. It’s time to start ticking off items from that family bucket list.
There will never be a perfect time – you will always find a reason to delay taking action.
You need more money or more time off from work.
But let me tell you, the best time is right now.
It’s summer and time to have some fun. Why don’t you step out of your comfort zone and make that family bucket list a reality rather than a one-day dream?
Choose from your family bucket list simple free stuff to do if you have no money.
If you are short of time because of work commitments, schedule evening or weekends to checking off an item or two.
Whatever your reason, find a way to work around obstacles to get cracking with fulfilling the dream list.
What’s in it for you as a parent?
The big opportunity to be with and enjoy your family.
To chuck your teachable moments and positive parenting rules out the window and up the fun factor with them.
The chance to really engage and get to know your kids.
What’s in it for your kids? The chance to see the other side of you.
To see you as more than the corrector of wrongs and the reminder of homework or chores to be done.
So get ready to make awesome memories checking off items on your family wish list.
