Round LogoTHRIVING FAMILIES MAKE MEALTIME A PRIORITY!

 

 

Our At-Home Family Challenges are always a fun activity for families to do together, plus they are super easy!  

What is your favorite family meal?  Are you a taco family?  Do you prefer lasagna?  Or maybe you like chicken fried steak.  Most of us have a recipe that brings up good memories of meals shared with people we love.

This month, we want to see your mealtime in action!  Sync up your family calendar and find a night that everyone will be home.  Pull out a favorite family recipe and give every family member something to do—it could be washing the veggies or measuring the water,  setting the table or even the actual cooking!  Or the meal could even be a simple one with noodles and a jar of spaghetti sauce.  The goal is to make mealtime a priority and get everyone involved in some way.

After you have created your meal, we want to see a pic!  Post your pic on This Side UP Family’s Facebook page or email it to info@thissideupfamily.org between April 28th and midnight on April 30th.  Tag it with #TSUFathomechallenge.  For extra entries, post it on your personal Facebook, Instagram or Twitter page with the same hashtag!

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 May 2nd.
