Hello fabulous parents!

As the New Year unfolds before us, it’s time to rethink our approach to resolutions that disappoint. Instead of the standard, often daunting pledges, let’s infuse our lives with joy, laughter, and plenty of play. Let’s create a year filled with giggles, dance parties, and unforgettable moments of fun with our kids! 🎉

Dance Like Nobody’s Watching

Life is too short to hold back on those dance moves! One of our playful resolutions could be to have more spontaneous dance parties at home. Crank up the volume, let loose, and dance like nobody’s watching. It’s a fantastic way to shake off the day’s stress, connect with our kids, and most importantly, have heaps of fun! 🕺💃

The Art of Pillow Fort Engineering

Remember the sheer joy of building a pillow fort as a child? Let’s bring that magic back! Challenge your family to create the most epic pillow fort. Use blankets, pillows, fairy lights – anything that adds to the fun. It’s not just about the result; it’s about laughing, creating, and being silly together. 🛋️

Tickle Fights and Belly Laughs

There’s something about the sound of our children’s laughter that makes everything feel right in the world. Let’s resolve to have more tickle fights, share silly jokes, and revel in the joy of belly laughs. These moments of unbridled happiness are the ones we’ll cherish the most. 😄

Sprinkle Fun into Everyday Routines:

Who says routines must be mundane? Let’s turn everyday activities into mini adventures. How about a pajama fashion show before bed? Or a sing-along session during bath time? Infusing fun into our daily routines not only makes happier kids but also more joyful and content parents. 🎈

Choose Play Over Perfection:

In our quest for perfection, we often forget the importance of play – not just for our kids, but for ourselves as well. This year let’s choose play over perfection. Let’s give ourselves the grace to be silly, make mistakes, and most importantly, enjoy the precious moments of parenthood. 🤪


Embracing playful resolutions is about creating a life filled with joy, connection, and lots of laughter. It’s about making space for fun amidst the chaos and cherishing the playful moments that bring us closer to our kids. So, here’s to a year of dance parties, pillow forts, tickle fights, and an abundance of joy! Let’s make 2024 our most playful year yet! 🎉

With giggles and cheers to a playful New Year,
