Game of the week:
💪🏼 This week is the 'Throw your pyjama' game!
➡️ Yes throw you pyjamas at you child.
➡️ It has featured every night for the last few weeks. We sometimes have calm, relaxing bedtimes, but at other times they just need more of a physical release. I have had a few changes the last few weeks which means I haven't been around as much as usual, and they have been wanting to have much more physical games like this to release the accumulated stress.
💥 In this game you throw each item of their pyjamas (including underpants!) at them.
💥 They have to try dodge each item.(make sure you miss a few times!)
💥 If it does hit them they have to put it on.
💥 My 2 never argue when they have to put it on. My 7 year old is so good now, it's quite hard to actually get her!
💥 Usually when they are fully clothed we head off to brush teeth or finish getting ready for bed.
💪🏼 If it doesn't end as smoothly as that, they may need to realise some more feelings through crying and raging. We can just then listen and support them through this.
I am doing the Hand in Hand Professional Intensive training this year and I love the term they give to listening to these feelings. STAY LISTENING. That's all they require, is for us to stay and listen 🧡
This game is great for:
🧡 relaxing stress and trauma from the day
🧡 supporting laughter
🧡 bed time battles
🧡 strengthening relationship
🧡 supporting sleep
🧡 enjoying being a parent 💪🏼
Have fun and do share if it helps in your house😊
