Colouring doesn’t just need to be reserved for children, creative expression of any kind can be therapeutic especially during times of high stress. It could even serve as a fun family activity.

Play Board Games!

A day all about family is a perfect chance to get out a board game – especially one of those games that can take hours to play, like Monopoly, Risk, or Trivial Pursuit.
