Move over, Mother’s and Father’s Day! Parent’s Day lands on July 23rd this year. Annually, this celebration falls on the fourth Sunday of July. The holiday became official in 1994 and marks a sweet time to honor those who are toiling away raising the next generation. As a parent yourself, you may be wondering: how do I celebrate?
Focus on the experience. Rather than gifts, experiences create long-lasting memories for you and your family. Choose a favorite family pastime--the beach or the park--or do something completely new. Whatever it is, make sure you do it together as a family.
Cook together. The stomach is the quickest way to the heart, after all. Plan a DIY pizza night, bake and decorate cupcakes together, or try to recreate your favorite restaurant dish.
Play a game. Turn off the TV, the iPad and the Kindle, and pull out an old fashioned board game to enjoy with your family.
Home sweet home improvement. Since Parent’s Day does land on a Sunday, ask your family to pitch in and help out with your honey-do list. Together, you can make cleaning out the basement or repainting the garage door a fun time. At the least, it will go much quicker with the whole family involved.
