Norwalk, CONN. (PRWEB) November 1, 2006
During the holidays, in the midst of all the shopping, the gift-wrapping and the cooking, families also have a great opportunity to spend more time together. College students come back for a couple of days, cousins, uncles and aunts come to visit, and schools are closed. Members of AP9 Connections, a premier recreation and entertainment savings program by Adaptive Marketing LLC, don't have to struggle to find ways to spend some quality -- and fun -- time together with relatives and siblings. All they have to do is use their benefits to access an ample selection of entertainment options, and each time they do, they save money!
Members log on to DealPass.com to access benefits like movie rentals and movie tickets, and gift cards to toy stores, restaurants, retail stores and many others. AP9 Connections offers all these fun resources to open up more entertainment options for families. While the stories Uncle Joe has been telling for the past 10 years are compelling, there's also a world of games and activities that can engage the family and perhaps create new holiday traditions.
AP9 Connections offers some ideas for enjoying the holidays with the whole family:
If weather permits, play outside during the day or at night, and create the family Olympics. Set up a volleyball net, toss around a Frisbee, see who lasts longer jumping rope or flies higher on the trampoline. Team up cousins against uncles, create categories by age, and offer some rewards to encourage fair play, team spirit and fun time.
Talent runs in every family, in all sorts of ways. Organize a concert with those who play instruments, let the poet of the family read a couple of sonnets, get the wanna-be stars to sing their favorite songs, or have a mini-play recreating an event that is now part of the family's history.
Red carpet event
Take a vote for movie theme night -- comedy, horror, animation or famous classics. You can rent the movie, buy a new DVD or make a short family trip to the movies. To keep the fun rolling, don't close the curtain after the credits; ask everyone what scene they liked best, which characters were most convincing or what parts they would change if they made the movie themselves.
Visit your local craft store for ideas and supplies to spend an artistic evening together. Work on one large project, separating in teams and giving each one a responsibility. At the end of the night, all the parts will come together for a big creation made by the whole family. You can do the same by inviting the kids to cook. Some will take care of the salad, others the main course, and others can add a touch of sugar with a yummy dessert.
Board games are always a great alternative as well. Have out-of-town relatives bring some of theirs, and play a different one every night. AP9 Connections offers savings on all of these resources and much more, so every member of the family can offer up their two cents of family fun before, during and after the holidays. Happy holidays, wishes AP9 Connections.
