Don’t forget to change your clocks this Sunday! With the time change and the ever shortening days, you’ll have a few extra hours of darkness to work with. Here’s a post I recently wrote for The Organized Parent to give you a few ideas about what to do with them.
As we get deeper into autumn and the night’s darkness seems to take up a bigger and bigger chunk of each 24 hours, it can sometimes feel challenging to find activities to enjoy with your family. In reality, it can be a great opportunity to create memorable experiences. Rather than view the longer night as a hindrance, here are a four ways to capitalize on a few extra hours of darkness.
Star Gazing. Grab some blankets and head outside to take advantage of the fact that you can enjoy the night sky before your kids’ bedtime. Watch the moon rise, find the Big Dipper or use your imagination to map and name your own constellations. Have your children draw pictures of their created constellations and write or dictate the legends behind them. Bind them all together for a personalized family guide to the stars.
