Every single year I make a New Year’s resolution for my family that we will be better at having Family Home Evening. And every single year, we fail. Ever.Single.Year.
I gear myself and my family up, we plan, we get excited…best laid plans, right? And then we fall off the wagon. It’s a total bummer because I really want us to make sure we are having one night, ANY night, once a week that we spend as a family. One of my biggest problems is that I feel like I overthink the whole process. I want to do something fun, engaging, and memorable for my family, but I get stressed that I’m not doing enough or doing too much and then time is up and I have nothing prepared. So you can imagine my excitement when the lovely ladies over at Polka Dot Poplars asked us if we wanted to try out their new My Minted Memories family night kits.
The moment I opened the box I was super excited! There are 4 kits to aid you in having a family night once a week. I first one our family decided to do was Gratitude. The main reason I wanted to do this is that the holidays are just around the corner. I know that it’s easy to get caught up in the “getting” instead of the “giving” and being grateful for what you’ve been blessed with.
The gratitude activity has each family member write down something they are grateful for, for each day of the month. This has been awesome to have our kids really think about things they are grateful for. I have to say it’s also been great for Josh and I to remember all that we have to be grateful for.
Our kit came with everything we needed and included a lesson plan, along with the activity, a recipe and shopping list for a family snack, additional activity ideas. They definitely have all your bases covered so you can have a great family night without all the stress of planning it out! Another great thing is that you can get these boxes on a subscription service. So every month you can have a box shipped directly to you and have your family nights completely handled! You can do a month to month ($24.95), 3 months ($69.95). or 6 months (139.95) AND shipping is included in the cost!
If you are looking for these boxes you can check out more about them and what the prices are here. I know your family will love getting to have some great quality time together and making fun memories! I can’t wait to hear all about the fun stuff you and your families do with these fantastic kits and we’ll be sure to share more of the fun My Minted Memories activities that we do! Thanks so much Polka Dot Poplars for sharing with us!
