22 Things to do with Your Kids at Bedtime
Bedtime is one of my favorite times of day with the kids. And not just for the obvious reason that they will soon be asleep. It's special one on one time that is usually pretty low-key and full of snuggles. Life sure didn't have much meaning for me before those snuggles.
Here is a list of low-key things to do with your kids in that small window of snuggle time.
Talk about your favorite part of the day.
Ask what they can do to make tomorrow better. Then tell them how you can make your day better tomorrow.
Make up stories using your kids as the characters.
Play letter/ sight word/ spelling word games.
Thank God for the people and things in your life.
Tell each other how much you love them.
“I love you as much as the sea is wide.”
Talk about the schedule for the next day, so that there are no surprises.
Play a board game.
Ask what your child’s favorite food was today and why.
Talk about different jobs and explain what they do.
Tell jokes and giggle.
Make shadow puppets.
Talk on walkie-talkies between the kid’s bedrooms.
Give Eskimo kisses.
