Friday evening obviously calls for a booze party thought for one extremist and a temple visit for the other end.
But for family situations, sometimes Friday excitement gets missing as they cannot plan bigger events with their little ones. So, here are intermediate ideas for spending a Friday evening or getting into the Friday mode..
1. Plan for a kids movie with mom and kids gang
It can either be your friends and all kids or best is to have your kid and his/her friends with mommies, the kids can enjoy their cartoon movie where moms can do their “getting along” chit chat
2. Kids date at home
If you are planning to do a end to end cleaning of the house over weekend, then this Friday is the best to invite your little one’s buddies home for a playdate. Bucket of popcorns, some fresh juice should make the party yummy for the little tummies
3. Plan a crazy evening
Kids come back home with their usual routine with tired faces and heavy bags. How about giving them a crazy evening ? Like face painting together. Both mom and the child can just wear your old pyjamas and keep newspapers on the floor to be careful and give your child the freedom of painting your face. All it takes is a neat bath for you, when you child becomes excited to the core.
The same craze can be done by hand painting (on paper) / fabric painting (with our old clothes) or painting all empty boxes (like vim box / colin box)
You can spend some time with your child on planting few plants , watering and clicking pics
5. Cook with your child
When a child is around, “cooking” is a scary word. But, have you thought of making a fruit salad casatta with the kid ? Or a smoothie ? Or a bread pudding? Try the fun, you will admire your little chef seriously working around with slurpy tongue.
6. Make a dubsmash video
Bring out the little director inside your little one and make a small movie video using “dubsmash” software, that will make you laugh out loud.
7. Rain rain Dont Go Away / Bubble play
If it is a rainy day, dont miss the chance to get back to your childhood with your kids. Switch on the geyser, get the towel and hair dryer ready and go out, play with nature along with your kids.
What if its not raining or your child might easily catch cold ? The substitute is Bubble play.. get the weapons set to make the place soapy , but its another game which takes you to childhood
8. Time for some fashion..
how about you spending a nice time in pedicure or a spa and the little one working out on new makeover ? New looks always gives new energy
9. Maybe a good habit ?
A piggy bank habit or learning with fun kind of activities ? Only if your little one is in a nerdy mood 🙂
10. Fun with technology
Today’s kids can be our teachers when it comes to ideas to play with technology, do some funny app time with the kid, be an obedient student to your little master
Have you chosen your option from the list ? 🙂
Get a habit of making energetic Monday mornings by creating an active Sunday evening (wait for my next blog on that) .. Similarly, getting into a crazy nutty Friday evening will gear up the weekend mood for all of you.. Give a try !
