Quality Time Activities

Most of us would like to spend more time with our kids; but with all the demands on our time- school, work, friends, after-school activities- it may seem like we're constantly driving from activity to activity with no real time to connect with our loved ones.

Each month, the Family Focus section will feature a new activity that you can try out with your kids. These activities are designed to encourage you to spend quality time with your kids and to open up the lines of communication. The activities will also help to reinforce those important character traits and build your child's self-esteem.

August Activity - Glow in the Dark Bowling


  • 10 Already Used Water Bottles, filled 3/4 of the way with water
  • Glow in the dark necklaces 
  • A ball
  • Optional: Glow in the dark spray paint


  1. Start by spray painting your ball with the paint so you can see it. If you don't want to do this, feel free to skip this step.
  2. Remove your labels from your bottles and fill your bottles 3/4 way with water. Now you will crack the glow sticks and stick into the bottled water. 
  3. Set them up like bowling pins and have fun rolling your ball and knock pins over.
  4. Just make sure to ensure the lids are on really tight so they won't spill when knocked over
