Do you have plans for Family Fun Day?

Getting Organized:
In your Home and Homeschool 
Dear Friends,
Part of the weekly plan with The FlyLady is to have a Family Fun Day. We structure our week so that the Home Blessings and Zone Missions are done Monday through Friday. This leaves us with Saturday as Family Fun Day. (*Note* Any day can be Family Fun Day if your spouse works shift work.)
What I hear often is that you don’t know what to do on Family Fun Day. You have grown accustomed to spending Saturday as a project day around the house or cleaning, and you end up not doing something fun on Saturday as a family because you did not decide what to do.
There are many things you can do for Family Fun Day. If the weather permits, plan an outdoor activity. We love hiking, fishing, playing in the snow, riding bikes, going to the park and having a picnic, playing ball, or other outdoor games.
If the weather is rainy or too cold, you can have a family game day, or you can plan an indoor activity, such as bowling, skating, going to a museum or science center.
Sit down as a family and make a list of activities with suggestions from each person. Then you can pick from the list and rotate through the choices. Each person will get to do something he or she enjoys as time goes on. You can give guidelines as far as cost and distance traveled.
The people I observe having Family Fun Day in their weekly schedule have planned it and set aside time in their schedule for it.
What are some of the things you have done for Family Fun Day?
Today’s Zone Mission is to shine the tub or shower and wipe down the washer and dryer.
Your Home Blessing for today is to empty the trash, sweep, and mop.
My menu plan for Friday is take out.
Send me pictures of your progress this week in zone 3!
Have a great weekend!
