The final countdown to the holiday season has begun!
During this festive time of year, it is always important to remember that one of the best gifts is time spent together as a family. Relationship expert Karen Deerwester reminds us that “laughter is the foundation for a resilient, happy family. In this fast-paced time of year, Family Game Nights renew families and encourage us to be our best and have fun!”
With busy holiday schedules, Deerwester suggests five ways that games can help families de-stress during this time of year:
- Don’t over-schedule. Choose a night that works for the entire family and enjoy un-plugged fun with Hasbro games
- Give yourself a break and plan for a takeout dinner to save time for games during Family Game Night
- Get the children involved by having them choose games — they’ll be excited to participate!
- Bring home new games to inspire unexpected fun
- Reward the family for playing by giving special awards, privileges and treats
