I've taught my children the fun of playing in the rain. The most gratifying was last year when they went outside on their own without me. I love this because it's a spontaneous, joyous activity, and the kids love having Mom playing in the rain with them.

We live in Texas where it is too warm for snow, so we have an indoor snowball fight with either crumpled sheets of paper made into snowballs. Or, sometimes this will happen spontaneously when the kids are helping with the laundry and start tossing sock balls. It brings a lot of fun and laughter and a light way to approach chores.

Sometimes there will be family game night, and we take turns picking the game. It could be Twister, Clue or Zingo, and we also like to do fondue. Game night and fondue is a "must do" on New Year's Eve each year.
