In January I posted a Family Fun Challenge that got a lot of positive feedback. It all came about when my husband and I were talking about how routine-like our winter was feeling. Cold, long days with dark nights beginning way too soon. We needed something to spice up our time together with the kids at night time. Instead of dinner, stories and bed, we wanted to add more FUN to our evenings! Check out my Pinterest Board where I pinned ideas of crafts and activities that went along with these daily challenges.
