The Big Kids Are Heading Home From School
First term of school is coming to a close! Exams will be written, possibly flights will be booked and students will come home for the holidays. I can’t wait! As a mom missing her son studying abroad, the holidays will mean not only reconnecting with him but also having the opportunity to catch up with all of his friends.
While students will say that they can’t wait to come home for the holidays and ‘do nothing’ in order to release the stress of first term, what they really mean is that they come home, drop their stuff and fly off with friends before their dirty laundry hits the floor. (I’ve actually threatened the use of duct tape to keep him close for the first 24 hours…ha!)
Keep Them Close To Home
Knowing this, I have his hockey skates, helmet, stick and few pucks ready and waiting at the door. With the temperature dropping, dads are out putting the boards up and starting to flood their yards in preparation for the home town pick-up hockey fun. What’s even better is when the neighbourhood pond has frozen solid and they have electrical connected with bonus for lighting and tunes. As a mom with a hockey son, I have already filled the freezer with pizzas in anticipation of the ‘Starving’ team that rolls into the house to warm up after a few hours on the ice.
A Friendly Hockey Game Has Its Benefits
Getting out on the ice for some hockey over the winter break is a great opportunity to reconnect with your friends, the season and yourself.
The benefits of organizing a get together are more than you think:
1. Reconnecting with friends
2. Sharing laughs & making new memories
3. Spending time with your kids
4. Getting fresh air & enjoying the season
6. Relieving stress
7. Improving mental health
Coordinate A Hockey Day
Your kids racing out the front door with hockey helmet, skates and stick is a good thing. With a little creativity Eventastic will help you coordinate a day of hockey fun easily by providing a platform to invite friends, family and neighbours and get their RSVP. What better way to get a crew together than a personal video invitation from a friend asking you to join them on the ice to catch up and have some laughs?
The platform makes it really easy to share and communicate the details like where, when, how and easily pass on so more friends can join in on the fun!
Non players could still attend the day and have a great time by playing photographer for the afternoon! There is nothing like an after party where everyone views the action shots, the wipe outs and of course the amazing goals. Our platform is feature-rich and includes the ability to upload photos from your phone to create a truly engaging experience for everyone!
Organize From Anywhere
What makes this really convenient and easy to do is that organizing the event, creating a video invite and sharing it can all happen from abroad. They can organize the whole thing before they start the trek home.
