Want an easy win, Mama? Invite your kid(s) to a homemade sundae bar. Fill a muffin tin with whatever leftover odds and ends you have on hand. (I used crushed cookies, mini marshmallows, M & Ms, white chocolate chips, dark chocolate chips and broken pretzels). Scoop some ice cream into mason jars or drinking glasses, and let them add their favorite toppings.
Ask them what the best (or weirdest!) part of their day was, and savor a few moments of togetherness before you start your task list.
Connecting with your kid doesn’t have to be complicated…it just takes pausing a moment, and maybe making the ordinary feel “special”.
What’s an everyday thing that you make “special” with a simple twist?
