6 ways to have fun with the fam
Be an amateur photographer. Take photos of family members and friends. Capture everything you want to remember, then use fun photo editing programs (like picnick.com) to jazz ‘em up. Don’t forget to make copies!
Pass it on. The summer is a great time to catch up with relatives you rarely see during the school year. Visit grandparents, great aunts, and great uncles. They have the best stories! You could even have a contest (or five!). Have everybody tell their funniest, craziest, scariest stories and vote on the winner of each category. Blue ribbons come with brownies, natch.
Play board games with family members or friends. A little healthy competition never hurt anyone, right? We’re loving old-school games like Monopoly, Life and Sorry!
Build a time capsule with your sibs or cousins. Include old photos, movie stubs, newspaper clippings...anything important to you! Bury it in the backyard…or somebody’s closet, and make a pact to open it together five years from now, or when you all have graduated from high school.
