Tips for Family Weekend Fun

[ 0 ] August 20, 2010 |

Every week on GoLocalProv I share tips on how families can make the most of their weekend – including helpful hints that make parenting easier and connecting you to great local happenings.

This week’s list:

Kido Tip 1. Record summer memories by journaling.

Encourage kids to write in a journal a few minutes at the beginning or end of very day about their favorite part of the day or a funny/happy/sad situation. If kids are reluctant to write or are new to journaling; have them draw a picture, paste a photo or list one thing they liked about their day. Follow up by asking them questions about the picture or the event, they may have more to share!

Kido Tip 2. Free School Supplies for Rhode Island Kids

The Providence School Department, Neighborhood Health Plan of Rhode Island, Sodexho School Services and over 30 community partners will sponsor this year’s Back to School Celebration. Kick off the new school year with celebrations this Saturday, August 21 from 9 a.m. — 1 p.m. at 11 community sites. Over 12,000 kids will receive free backpacks filled with school supplies. Music, raffles and food also will be provided at each location.
