Planning Family Fun Day

Getting Organized:
In your home and homeschool

Dear Friends,

Each week part of the weekly plan is to have a Family Fun Day. We structure our week so that the Home Blessings are done, and the Zone Missions are completed. This leaves us with Saturday as Family Fun Day. (*Note* Any day can be Family Fun Day if your spouse works shift work.)
What I hear often is that you don’t know what to do on Family Fun Day. You have grown accustomed to spending Saturday as a project day, and you end up not doing something fun on Saturday as a family because you did not decide what to do.
There are many things you can do for Family Fun Day. If the weather permits, plan an outdoor activity. If the weather is terrible, you can have a family game day, or you can plan an indoor activity.
Sit down as a family and make a list of activities from suggestions from each person. Then you can pick from the list and rotate through the choices. Each person will get to do something he or she enjoys as time goes on. You can give guidelines as far as cost and distance traveled.
My family has enjoyed picnics, hikes, fishing, playing in the snow, bowling, skating, games, going to sporting events, board games, and visiting family and friends.
The people I observe having Family Fun Day in their weekly schedule have planned it and set aside time in their schedule for it.
What are some of the things you have done for Family Fun Day?
Today’s Zone Mission is to do a 27 Fling Boogie in the Entryway and Dining Room.

Your Home Blessing for today is to empty the trash, sweep, and mop.

My menu plan for Friday is take out.

Have a wonderful weekend!
