5 Easy Ways to Spend Time with Your Kids
This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Tyson Foods, Inc. The opinions and text are all mine.
It seems like every post I start these days begins with how busy we are. It’s true that the older the kids get, the busier we seem to become. Between school, activities, and each one now getting their own little social circle, we seem to be constantly running each day. I’ve found some fun ways to work more time with the kids into my schedule so be sure to read on and see what we like to do.
My kids, husband, and I used to all reconnect after the daily activities, but now the evening also seems be filled with events that can affect how much time we have for dinner. That means team practices, after-school clubs, homework, class projects and the other everyday tasks can interrupt meal preparation and dinner itself. My husband and I agree that having a family dinner is important, so I do my best to make a home-prepared meal no matter how hectic things become. I’ve found on those busy nights, an easy but delicious meal is the perfect solution for dinner time.
5 Easy Ways to Spend Time with Your Kids – Kitchen Time
Whenever I can, I try to multitask while I’m preparing dinner. I love easy meal prep because I can help my kids with their homework, set the dinner table, and chat about our day while getting the meal ready. When I have more time to prepare a meal on the weekends, I encourage the children to help and we can take our time with everything. But almost every single weeknight, dinner needs to be fast and easy.
On Monday night we had one volleyball game, one soccer practice, an after-school class meeting, and errands to run for a school event today. By the time we got home, everyone was hungry and I needed something that could be put together easily. I grabbed a Tyson® Individually Frozen Dinner Kit- Four Cheese Chicken & Broccoli Pasta from the freezer and sent the kids upstairs to get quick showers before dinner.

By the time the children came back downstairs, I had put together this amazing chicken dinner.
Everyone loved it! It was so easy to put together and it was absolutely delicious.
Tyson Individually Frozen Dinner Kits are uncooked meals that stay frozen until you’re ready for a delicious fresh-made meal prepared in your kitchen in under an hour.
The premium proteins and veggies are already prepped and portioned, then frozen when they’re at the peak of freshness.
The Tyson Individually Frozen Dinner Kit- Four Cheese Chicken & Broccoli Pasta can be made in a conventional oven or in a skillet in under an hour and is perfect for family dinner on busy (or not so busy) nights.
My family loves everything chicken, so I was thrilled to see that there was a huge portion of chicken in the dinner kit. I’ve tried other dinner kits from other companies in the past and have been pretty disappointed in how the dinner turned out. The Tyson Individually Frozen Dinner Kit- Four Cheese Chicken & Broccoli Pasta was exactly what we wanted – huge portions of chicken, lots of creamy sauce, delicious fresh-tasting broccoli, and yummy pasta.
Everyone in the family wanted seconds, which rarely happens. I’ll definitely be stocking up on these Tyson Individually Frozen Dinner Kits for the future!
I’m looking forward to trying all of the varieties in the future and have already picked up the Tyson Individually Frozen Dinner Kit- Tomato Herb Chicken & Vegetable at Publix for dinner later this week. The Tyson meals are near the frozen burgers at Publix, so be sure to check them out on your next grocery trip. I’m sure your family will love them as much as we do!

5 Easy Ways to Spend Time with Your Kids
Have special time:
Part of the fun for kids is looking forward to an event. Pick a date to spend special time with your children and write it on a family calendar. Your kids will be able to check and see when their fun day is coming and can look forward to it.
Take a fun class together:
Choose an art class, a swim class, or something else your child will enjoy and sign up together. We are all used to finding classes and activities that the kids can take but don’t sign ourselves up as well. Your children will love spending time together while they enjoy the class.
Make dinner together:
Your children can give input on what to make for the meal, can help shop for the ingredients, and help with age-appropriate tasks in the kitchen. Kids will learn new cooking skills as they have fun with mom or dad.
Make a scrapbook together:
Print out some of your favorite family photos and create a scrapbook together with your child. Let her choose where the photos will go, help decorate the pages with stickers and embellishments, and let your child keep the book in her room to enjoy whenever she wants.
Get to know each other:
Find a fun survey online or create your own including questions about your favorite day ever to most embarrassing moment and everything in between. You and your child will enjoy sharing the answers together and will learn new things about each other.
Enjoy spending that quality time with your kids and don’t forget to try the best meal kit value on the market. Save $2 on any ONE (1) Tyson Individually Frozen Dinner Kit now!
