Family Inspiration – “The Turnaround”.
Suggestion: Have a ‘family fun hour’ each day where you are intentional about growing your family connection and values.
Research shows: Strong families demonstrate appreciation and affection for each other. Check out earlier posts
Today: “The Turnaround” Family Challenge
The whole family stands on a large mat. The challenge is to try and turn the mat over without touching the floor while everyone is still on the mat! Easy? Or is it!? (Remember to do this as a team, and to use positive words of encouragement)
Once you have managed it, try to do the same with a smaller mat!
Optional: picnic set – drink and snack as a reward on completion of the challenge!
On completing the assignment:
– Celebrate successes.
– Compliment each other on each person’s contributions to the success of the whole family.
Questions to ask yourselves:
How did we do as a team? (e.g. Had a good time? Bad communication? Grumpy with each other? Encouraging words spoken to each other? Felt ideas were listened to?)
How do we honour successes in our family?
How could we celebrate better?
Ask each family member what would make them feel special when they have achieved success? (e.g. praise, a certificate, a gift, quality time together, acknowledgement, pat on the back . . . )
