Item description for 303 Great Ideas for Families (Most Cost Less Than .90!) by Phyllis Pellman Good & Merle Good...
Overview What can a family do together -- and spend less than 99 cents? Here, in the voice of those who devised and then practiced these activities, are dozens of ways to have fun together, to keep traditions, to tackle work projects without wearing out the helpers -- all for little outlay of money. Where do thoughtful parents turn for concrete ideas about activities to do with their children which are joyful and family-building? 303 Ideas for Families (most cost less than 99!) is just that -- a full collection of resources for routine days, moments of celebration, and troublesome matters like managing TV and allowances. This book is a virtual catalog of specific practices and traditions gathered from "experts": All ideas have come from parents who have either used them or observed them at work. Here are ideas for: *Creating a sense of family, despite everyone's schedule pressures; *Having fun together, even though ages and interests vary; *Making mealtime and bedtime occasions for building belonging; *Passing the time in the car; *Modeling faith and commitment; *Happily occupying children at home; *Inspiring responsible handling of chores; *Staying in touch with grandparents and extended family members. Organized for easy access to specific practices and traditions, this book espouses fun, values, community, belonging, and faith, in contemporary families.
