The most precious thing we have are our loved ones. However, many don’t know what to do to nurture this precious gift called family in the midst of the To-Do lists, long work days, and overall business of life. No need to worry though, we are here to help! Our team at Blessed Bananas has compiled a list of things you can do to bond with your family during the holidays.


  • Try something new.
  • Another family-strengthening activity is getting out of your comfort zones and trying something new together. For example, your whole family could attend a cooking class, try your hand at a pottery class, or go to an indoor rock-climbing wall. You can either try something new that no one in the family has ever done or let each person teach one of their hobbies to the rest of the family.


  • Gift of Time.
  • Spending quality time together can foster memories that will last a lifetime. Plan an activity to spend one-on-one time with each child or family member where you can give them your undivided attention. Offer to bake a special holiday recipe together, take them to pick out a gift for a sibling or loved one, or read a unique festive story together. What matters is that the time is intentional and focused on connecting over shared moments. Take this as an opportunity to open the lines of communication with your loved ones by actively engaging in meaningful conversations to help foster open discussions and strengthen bonds.


  • Practice Gratitude.
  • Make time to gather your family to share what you are grateful for during the holiday season. Make it fun and engaging by playing festive music in the background and ensuring that each family member is given time to reflect on what they are thankful for this year. This practice can be healing and helpful in both challenging and good times. If it’s not already a regular part of your holiday traditions, now is the perfect time to start.


  • Practice Self-care together.
  •  Taking care of your hair is also part of your self-care routine, so making it something you enjoy is essential! Having fun with your routine helps you stay consistent, which is key to reaching your hair goals and starting this new year with the hair you’ve always wanted.


    This is why at  Blessed Bananas, we are all about creating quality hair care products for the entire family that can turn self-care into precious moments with loved ones! And guess what: our masks are safe to use on children! 




    Our super hydrating Mommy & Me, and Daddy & Me masks are a must to include in your self-care routine!



    Remember that your children and teens learn by example. The best way to set a positive example for them is by placing a high value on the family. When you schedule time for fun and activities, you are demonstrating not only that you value the family, but also that you value your children individually. 


    There is not a more extraordinary gift you can give your family than making time for them and in turn, strengthening family bonds by doing so.
