Family Moment Monday
Families live together, eat together, and playing together, but can still not know THAT much about each other. It can be amazing to think that some brother and sisters don't know who each others best friends are, or dad doesn't know his daughter is into soccer, or mother is clueless that son wants to join the scouts. With all of our busy lives and many obligations this can happen; happen fast and happen easily.
The best way to help keep each other connected and up to date with the on-goings of every one's life is to simply ask, and ask constantly, cause things change.... especially with teenage girls... because I don't know about you, but there seems to always be something new with them every week.
A fun way to keep updated is to have the family play a questionnaire game. Type up a listen of questions that will later be printed off and handed out to everyone in the family. Ask questions like...
What is your favorite food?
What is your most embarrassing moment?
What do you want to be when you grow up?
What is your favorite movie?
Who is your best friend?
If you could have any pet what would it be?
Go ahead and get silly with odd questions like...
If you could only eat one thing forever what would it be?
Of all the super powers, which one would you want?
If you could meet anyone in the world who would you like to meet?
Once you have all the questions listed, printed off, handed out and filled, you can then start cutting out each question. When all the questions have been cut/separated, put them into a bowl and start picking ones to read out loud. Then everyone in the family gets to guess who's answer it was. Then give that person a moment to explain why grilled cheese is their favorite food, or why they have always wanted a dolphin as a pet, why their dream is to become a synchronised swimmer.
This is a fun way to see how well you all know each other, plus gives each child, or parent, a time to share their thoughts, dreams, or ideas with the people they care about most. So have fun getting to know the family and thinking up questions.
