Express Kindness!!!

Family Strong 2018 At-Home Value Challenge

 

Thriving Families…EXPRESS KINDNESS!

Step 1:  Cut out as many hearts as you can—the more the better. You can use construction paper, scrapbook paper or whatever you have on hand! Place the hearts somewhere easy for everyone in your family to access. Post it notes also work great.

Step 2:  Challenge each family member to come up with kind words about another family member and write them on on a heart-shaped note—without signing it so that it’s anonymous.

Step 3:  Encourage each person to put their notes on the family member’s door when they are not looking. If more than one person shares the room, be sure to put their name on it.

Step 4:  Continue writing kind words and posting them on doors for the rest of the month. Take a pic of one your family participating in this challenge and post it on our facebook page or email it to us at info@thissideupfamily.org by Feb 28th for a chance to win a Family Funnection Basket!

WHY??!!!

YOU COULD WIN.  All entries will be submitted for a Family FUNnection basket that contains a gift card, board game and more!

THE BIG WHY.  Because Family Time is so important and has been proven to be a key indicator of a child’s success and well-being.  Children who are positively connected to their family relationships are less likely to make poor choices and more likely to become confident, content community participants as they grow up!  That relationship building starts NOW, no matter the age of your child!  It’s never too early and it’s never too late to focus on family connection!  And the results are trajectory-changing, for the family and community strengthening!

Thank you for participating in this purposeful challenge to increase FAMILY TIME in your home and our community.  Winner will be announced on Facebook/emailed on 3/7/18.

FAMILY TIME MATTERS!!!!
