One easy and fun family activity
Today’s idea: Create a special family newsletter
Create a family newsletter
This activity is fun for the whole family, and it will also bring joy to the grandparents and the close friends who will receive the newsletter.
Here is how to do this:
- Invite the kids to come up with ideas about how the newsletter should look like and what to include in it.
- Choose a title for your newsletter and design a layout for it (or download the template at the bottom of the page).
- Let the kids be creative and add drawings and messages to the newsletter.
- Here are some things you can include in your newsletter: favorite family activities, highlights of the month, important events, plans for the next month, a family portrait made by the kids, funny family stories, messages for the grandparents, interviews with the kids.
One resource that will make learning more fun

The app is designed by experts to deliver fast and proven results to prepare your child for school in the best way possible.
This app is designed for kids ages 2 to 13, and it has a section for reading and one for math. The activities make learning fun for kids, and the app also includes more than 2000 ebooks.
One bonus idea for kids to try today
Today’s bonus idea: Family interviews
Invite the kids to interview family members
This idea is great for keeping kids busy and encouraging them to get to know their family members better.
The best way to start is to interview your kids. This helps you connect with them, and also offers them an example of how to interview family members.
Then invite them to create a list of questions they want to ask other family members, and decide how they will record the answers. The easiest way is to record the whole interview on video.
After they decide all the details about the interviews, they can start interviewing family members, either in person (parents, siblings) or via video call (grandparents, other close relatives).
