Why Make Time for Quick Adventures?

Any time you spend with your kids can be quality time; you just have to find it and fill it with something fun.

Think of those little 10-minute chunks of time in between other things: while you’re driving to and from school, waiting for activities to start or end, having a snack, getting ready for dinner or bed… Often these short slots of time are filled with TV or video games, but you can fill them with fun family activities instead.

There are plenty of mini-adventures you can have with your kids in those short slices of time between other things, so make the most of those little moments. Fill them with something fun before the kids have a chance to check out and get bored.

These boredom-buster activities for kids will make it easy.
