Looking for festive things to do with your son this holiday season?
It’s the perfect opportunity for you to have a festive good time with your son! It’s the prime time to past down family traditions, to educate him on the reason for the season, to bond and make memories. It’s the most wonderful time of the year so why not schedule in some mother son time to do joyful things together. Building a powerful relationship with your son is very important and the number one way to do so is by spending quality time together one on one.
My KJ turned 8-years-old just a couple months ago. He’s very stubborn and opinionated, yet very helpful, flattering, comical and sweet. The time we spend together one on one is always so memorable! With him growing up so fast, I want to be sure to fill his memories with our family traditions. I want him to know that holidays are all about fun, happiness and family. I want him to look back and remember the time he spent with his mom and hold on to those memories forever.
As a result, I’m always sure to carve out some time for just him and I. We love to laugh, make silly faces, have tickle sessions, and cherish what a mother son relationship should be.
I thought of some great activities for us to do with our sons this holiday season. I hope you find them useful and have a festive good time with your son too!
