DetailsResearch has discovered that one of the most effective strategies parents and grandparents have for raising healthy, well-adjusted kids is to frequently eat meals together as a family. Family meals can include both fun and faith talk which can pass on a faith in Christ that lasts. Make Mealtime Family Time™ Kits will be loved by your parents/grandparents as well as your pre-teens and teens.
Each Kit is designed to engage the total family in fun-n-faith during a shared mealtime at home or while out.
Monthly Make Mealtime Family Time™ Kits contain fun-n-faith activities that parents can do with their pre-teens and teens during or immediately after a shared family meal at home or while out for a meal. There are three special Kits for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter for a total of 12.
