Setting Regular Holiday Game Nights Can Help You Keep Your 2010 Resolution of Spending More Time With Family and Friends

Making More Time to Share Experiences and Laugh Together Strengthens Familial Bonds -- Setting a Holiday Game Night Plan Gives You a Greater Chance of Success

SPOKANE, WA--(Marketwire - December 17, 2009) - Time and attention is the present children never forget, friends never tire of, and families thrive on. That's why one of the most common New Year's resolutions is to spend more time with friends and family. It's among our top three resolutions for many of us every year, but frantic schedules throw us off by February. According to Creative Spark Media, ( the world's most prolific printable game developer, the key is to success is to commit to several holiday game nights throughout the year. This tactic cements it in your calendar, holds you accountable -- and chances are, with the more disciplined approach, you, and your friends and family will reap the benefits resulting from your efforts.

Studies show the most successful friends and families spend time together regularly. It provides them a strong sense of security, belonging and bonding. Today's families have more distractions inside the home -- with TVs and electronics in separate rooms -- and extracurricular activities outside the home. Scheduling family and friends game nights around several key holidays -- using inexpensive, downloadable, printable games like Christmas bingo, New Year's word scrambles, Valentine's Day crosswords, Easter trivia, and more -- help cultivate important connections and promote shared experiences involving fun and laughter.

"Incorporating holiday game nights into Christmas, New Year's Day, Valentine's Day, St. Patrick's Day, Easter, Halloween and birthdays (for all ages), can have you laughing with family and friends at least seven times a year," said Heather Pieczonka, president and chief strategist of Creative Spark Media. "Game nights foster laughter and that promotes the very best bonding."

For as low as $6.99, printable party games make hosting easy -- hosts select a game online, purchase it, and in minutes, they're printing. This option allows the flexibility to print as many copies of the game as they need for 60-90 days. Some customers also choose to have them printed and shipped directly to their door.
