If you’re sick and tired of watching TV as a family and are looking for exciting ways to spend time together as a family you’ve come to the right place. Simply continue reading to discover a few memorable things to do with your family.
Memorable things to do With Your Family:
Visit a local farm:
If there is a family friendly farm which you can visit within driving distance of your home, it’s well worth doing so. As your children will enjoy getting to pet friendly, adorable farm animals such as baby lambs and goats and will enjoy getting to experience traditional farm experiences, such as riding a tractor. It’s a particularly great idea to visit a pumpkin farm before Halloween in order to hand select pumpkins, which you’ll be able to carve and decorate the front of your home with.
Create your own home made versions of your favorite family board games:
If your children have artistic talent and are incredibly creative you may want to challenge them to create fun, home made versions of your favorite family board games. Which you’ll be able to use on your family board game nights. As an example, if your family owns a Monopoly board, your kids may want to have a go at creating a Monopoly board which features streets and buildings from your town or city.
Just make sure that you have a wide variety of craft materials on hand such as cardboard, color pencils, paints, stamps, stickers and family photos. As your kids may want to use some of your family photos to create their own home made board games. As an example, if your kids create their own Monopoly boards, they may want to use photos of each member in order to create unique one of a kind tokens. By glueing laminated photos of each family member onto cardboard backing.
Take up a new hobby together:
Why not bond with your partner and kids by taking up a new hobby together? As an example, you may want to take horse riding lessons as a family or to learn how to ski on a snow filled vacation. Some other hobbies which you may want to consider taking up as a family include geo-caching, surfing, snorkelling, baking, golf and fishing. Simply choose activities which your whole family are excited about taking up. As you should never force your kids to take part in a hobby or activity which they don’t enjoy.
Take your kids to family friendly plays:
Your kids will feel grown up if you let them dress up and attend plays together as a family. You may even want to start a tradition where you enjoy a classy dinner at a kid friendly restaurant before you take your seats to enjoy a family friendly play together. If in doubt you can’t go wrong attending pantomimes which are classic kid friendly stories such as Cinderella, which your children will be sure to love and which boast plenty of fun audience interaction.
So if you love experiencing new activities with your family, it’s well worth ticking off all of the family friendly activities which have been conveniently listed out above. Especially if you’re sick and tired of your kids being glued to your TV.
