News Years can be a time of AWESOMENESS, restart, set some goals, do all the things.
BUT it can also feel a bit pressured and overwhelming.

We are here to share some of our Fav New Years Family (and personal FUN) for our Busy Families!

Memory Jar: We post this every year because we LOVE it! This quick and easy way to record the memories of the year is the BEST because....

☝🏻 Mindfullness: At the end of the day or week you and your kiddos can reflect on the highlights and memories made. Write them down and shove them in that jar!

✌🏼 Reflection: Next Year you can read through your memories and then put them all inside a Christmas ball ornament to capture the year. So fun to reflect on silly things!

🌟 Pro Tip: We let friends and family write in our jar. So fun to read the silly nights you had together.

Give this a ❤️ if you do this or hope to do it this year!

Families...we did it! 2021 is under our well worn super family belts and onward we trek into 2022...TOGETHER!

We are so beyond grateful you choose My Recess and our amazing team to be a part of your family and navigate this parenting journey together.

Our My Recess Missions continue to be at our foundation. A mission that shines a light and sets big dreams to support Parents, empower Kids, spark inclusion and FUN in our community and cultivate an amazing and supportive place for our team to share their gifts with our community.
