Family Fun Inspiration for January 2020

Happy New Year! The holiday decorations are down — it’s the season of renewal and blank canvases. I admit that I still get a little melancholy around this time of year (the lack of sunlight doesn’t help.) But it doesn’t last long. To help inspire you this month, here’s a list of ideas for January. We’re embracing the dark days with plenty of time outside. We’re making, exploring, learning and playing. I hope the new year brings you and your family plenty of love, light and inspiration.

This list is just a starting point, follow me over on Instagram for day-to-day inspiration.
