Week 3 - Kindness Rocks
This is one of my favorite family activities we have done. You've probably heard of them before and hopefully you've even been happily surprised by them. We have an entire trail here where I live that has them all along it. What a great way to bring joy and encouragement to the world! My teenagers even enjoyed this! Grab your family and share some kindness!
Week 4 - Summer Olympics & Homemade Ice Cream
The Summer Olympics begin this Friday! This is a fun opportunity to gather your family and enjoy and appreciate these amazing athletes and all their hard work! While you are watching why not make homemade ice cream? I've included our favorite recipe below. We are big fans of using Cookies and Cream or Chocolate pudding flavors!

Week 5 - Would you rather?
This game was something I first did when I was teaching school. Just recently I was driving my quietest child somewhere and wanted to get her talking. I decided to try asking her a few questions and it worked! Pretty soon she was sharing all sorts of stuff with me, all prompted by a options and wanting to explain her choices. Give it a try! Be sure to grab the idea list link at the bottom!
Check out this list of 100 Would you Rather Questions that I found shared on Sign Up Genius. Click here to see it! You could make a family night out of it or do what I did... I printed it out and put it in my car to pull out on drives and get the family talking! Enjoy!
