When I think of an adventure, my mind slips into another world thinking of zip lining in Costa Rica or taking a cruise through the Greek Islands or sleeping in a hut over the bright blue water in Bali and then I come back to reality with a toy car being whipped at my head and watching as my two boys start swinging baseball bats at each other (soft one’s don’t worry – this is pretty normal in my house).
The truth is, life is one big adventure … you never know what to expect! They come in all different ways like a simple trip to the grocery store, playing Super-Heroes in the basement or even being woken up at 4:00am to your screaming child scared of the nightmare he just had … all an adventure.
The best adventures are the one’s your kids make up using their crazy imaginations and watching adventure television cartoon shows help with that. Last weekend we saw ‘How to Train your Dragon’ and since seeing it, my son tells me how he wants to have a dragon take him to camp everyday.
Make your own adventures with your kids while sitting on the couch with a bowl of popcorn watching all the great adventure titles on Netflix.
