Today we fight the perils of FDS: Fun Deficiency Syndrome.
How very appropriate that today is National Fun Day and the children are at home because it is also Easter Monday. How about an egg toss for fun – we need to do something with those boiled eggs that the kids made.
Today is also Wet Monday. A tradition that was grew out of splashing holy water to a university wide water fight. Now, that sounds like fun!
It is also National Deep Dish Pizza Day – how about having the kids make their own pizzas today – that could be fun and probably not too messy!
Cheap, But Fun Things To Do
A lack of money shouldn’t mean a lack of fun. There are lots of fun things to do that don’t require any money at all. Play dress up or make-believe with your kids. Go and ride your bike. Take a walk at the beach or along a nature trail and see what spring has to offer. Play catch or Frisbee with your dog.
Fun can take place at work as well. This is also Laugh At Work Week – so check out our previous posting on this celebration for things that you can do at work.
We love to have fun. When we are having fun we forget ourselves. Fun includes happiness, amusement, exhilaration, laughter and joy. However, we lose our sense of fun as we age if we do not nourish it regularly.
