Some Family Downtime with #FP_Thomas

15 Oct

I often find it hard to relax and unwind from the busy day. I find that my kids just go and go and go. The more they go, the more they want to keep going!
So how do I find time to relax and unwind? We create quiet family time. Some of the things that we love to do as a family are:
Building with Thomas & Friends Mega-Bloks – we use the instructions once, then we go wild with our imagination and set up the tracks however we want! That way we give Thomas an adventure he can remember – Most of them include being smashed by superheros only to rebuild. Thomas
Another thing we do to stimulate our creativity and imagination is art! We love doing art all sorts of ways! Shaving cream art, spray-bottle art, even using some recyclables and making them into an art project!
All these activities are done with soft music playing in the background, or in complete silence (My favorite!)
On Friday nights (sometimes Saturday) we get bowls of popcorn, chips & water, hunker down in our pajamas for family movie night! We often give the kids a choice of a family movie to watch and without hesitation my youngest son ALWAYS picks one of our Thomas & Friends movie – The most recent movie we watched was Thomas & Friends The Great Discovery! He just loves trains!

I look forward to see what toys & DVD ends up on his Christmas list – I’m thinking Thomas and Friends – King of the Railway DVD! It comes in French, so we’ll see what language it comes in by the time it reaches us from the North Pole.

After the day is done, we have our quality family time together, each kid gets to pick out a book, and we all snuggle on the big bed, and read.
