A few months ago, Sal and I decided that we wanted to start taking the kids to church on Sundays. And now you might be thinking, “One more thing? Really?”. But I think we had come to a point in our lives when we felt we both needed a little grounding and some spirituality. And what kid DOESN’T need that, right?
On the advice of friends, we landed in a church that was an absolutely perfect fit for us. Great music, down to earth leadership, and a great kids program. So church at 9 am on Sundays quickly became a welcome part of our routine.
But here’s the thing. For two hours on Sunday, we are absorbed in what goes on at church. The kids learn bible verses and discuss the theme of the week. Sal and I whisper back and forth during sermons about how much certain topics speak to us. But then we go back to our day, our week, and not much else is said about church that week.
That’s where our fun new Buddy Box subscription comes in. Each month, a box arrives in our mailbox filled with faith-based games, puzzles, science experiments, gizmos, and more! My boys LOVE to get mail (who doesn’t, right?) and this box is especially fun for them because it’s just so full of fun surprises.
The best part for us is that there are activities that appeal to both boys. While they aren’t that far apart in age (4 and 6), the differences in what interests them are becoming more obvious but the Buddy Box subscription really is fun for both of them and, better yet, something they can do together.
The Buddy Box subscription also has some fun ways to get mom and dad involved too which is SO helpful for us. Not having grown up in a church-going family, I never know exactly how to incorporate religion into our daily conversations. The activities in the box bring up a lot of discussions that are right on the kids’ level so it’s been great.
