Happy New Year!
Yes, I know it's February 1st, but I took the entire month of January off from blogging 🙂
But now I'm back and will hopefully be posting at least once a week.
I just wanted to share with you something that we have decided to do as a family each week in the year 2017.
One of our family goals for this year is to do a fun project together each week.
During the Christmas season, we did a fun project every day for 12 days.
(In case you missed it, see Our 12 Days of Christmas Crafts).
This was great fun! The children and I really enjoyed it. Since we were taking a break from official schoolwork during this time, we had extra time in our day for these craft projects.
In case you haven't noticed, we really enjoy crafts around here 🙂
But we decided that our weekly projects of 2017 don't have to be a traditional art type craft, but just some fun activity we can do together.
We received this Peanuts Wooden Birdhouse Set as a Christmas present, so we decided make it our very first project:
Other projects we have done together so far this year:
We have worked a 200-piece puzzle together. And we have baked a peach pie from scratch.
I know working a puzzle and baking a pie may not seem much like craft projects, but here is why that doesn't really matter:
This goal we have isn't so much about what we are making - it's more about just doing something together so that we can enjoy time with each other.
I am looking forward to many more creative family time projects this year, and I hope to share some of them with you.
What are your favorite ways to spend time with your family? How do you make time?
I would love to hear from you! Please comment below.
