Whether you're a mom or a dad, if you're the noncustodial parent, you will want to make the most of your visitation time with your kids. However, you could be drawing a blank on the types of activities to enjoy with your child.
Look no further than this article, which could provide you with some excellent tips to make the most out of your visitation time. Take a look at the following ideas. Do you think you and your child would enjoy any of these activities?
Play board games and other games with your child
Think of the games you played when you were a child. These are an excellent alternative to having your child get lost by him or herself inside an electronic device during your visit. Games like Connect Four, Uno, Zingo, Sorry, Checkers, Scrabble, Chess, Monopoly, playing card games and more will help you form a bond with your child while also having fun.
Make snacks and food together
Making a meal with your child is fun. You can also make snacks, like breakfast bars that your child can take home after your visit to enjoy throughout the week. In fact, breakfast bars and snack bars that your child brings home will help him or her feel connected to you when you're not around. Every time your child eats one, it will be an instant reminder of the fun you had making them.
Do any kind of craft with your child
Have you ever thought of making a picture collage book with your child? Would your child enjoy making a sock puppet, a decorated picture frame, a sewing project or another kind of project? When doing crafts with your child, make sure that you're assisting and empowering him or her to do much of the work without direct help. When you have the finished product, it will be a memory of the fun time you spent together.
The time you spend with your children is precious to you and to your kids. If you're having trouble asserting your child visitation rights, a consultation with a Florida family law lawyer will help you explore your legal rights and options.
