Baking together is fun and can be educational. Improve children’s reading and math skills when you follow directions and measure ingredients. Plus, after all the learning, there’s cake.
Activities of the Week
Bake a cake
Working all the time? Always on your phone? Turn off that laptop, leave your phone behind, and spend some uninterrupted time with your children.
If you have more than one child, plan special time alone with each of them.
Work on a puzzle
Find a crossword or Sudoku puzzle in the newspaper, or pick up a book based on your expertise.
Fix It Together
Work through your list of home improvement chores together and show your children how to repair household items.
Catch a Movie
Check the rating and the description to make sure the film is appropriate for your child’s age. Remember your favorite scenes and talk about them on your way home.
Visit the Library
Get library cards for each member of your family. Share the joy of reading without the financial commitment of buying books. Help your children pick out books you can read together.
Let fatherhood go to your head
Take your son to the barber or learn to braid your daughter’s hair.
