Making holiday memories

Life can be so busy that we forget to stop and make memories with our children. The house needs cleaning, clothes washed, food prepared etc.

This holiday however let us stop every day for just 30 minutes and do something fun with our children. Use playdough* to create stories like the three little pigs. Play a board game, cut out your favourite items from a magazine and together make an “Interest board” that shows what each family member likes to eat or do, take a walk to the park and meet up with friends for a winter picnic lunch.

Remember TIME is the one thing that we cannot turn back, so let us use it as best we can. A little bit of planning can create wonderful memories.
