The Big Game and sometimes stupid commercials
are just around the corner.
HOW CAN A FAMILY HAVE FUN TOGETHER ON SUPER BOWL SUNDAY?
Here are some suggestions:
Families with children containing one Non-Super Bowl Parent (NSBP): After safely shutting the Super Bowl Parent (SBP) in a sound proof room (Little kids shouldn’t hear the sideline recliner comments): Have some craft materials available and make something together. Go here for some ideas on projects.
Families with two SBPs with kids: (1) Have someone else do crafts with the kids or take them to Chuck E. Cheese. (2) Don’t have someone watch the kids and be prepared to remodel the rooms your kids made projects in.
Families with NO SBP’s with kids: (1) Take the kids to a park (unless it is 40 degrees below zero!). (2) Go to the mall, unless all of the NSBP’s are there with their kids trying to thaw out from their visit to the park!
Families with teenagers: Your guess is as good as mine. Be sure you have plenty of insurance!
Childless couples: Do anything you want!
There is one thing you can do to promote family relationships on Super Bowl Sunday: It is called half-time. Ignore the attempts at entertainment, turn off the TV, and do something together. Avoid frozen parks and crowded malls…they are over rated.
