[S]pending time with family is something we all look forward to at the end of the week and it is often the best time of the week to bond and relax amongst people we love and care about. If you are at a loss on what to do and how to spend your time together as a family this week, here are some fun ideas to try.
Fun Family Activities – Mountain Biking
If the day is sunny and you all wake up bright and early, a great idea would be to find a local park and go for a ride in the mountains and forests. It can be an awesome way for you to keep the kids fit and healthy and it will allow you all to bond doing something a little bit different from the norm. And if you have a smaller child who will get tired before everyone else you could consider buying some electric transportation like a scooter or bike so they can be in on the action!
If the weather is a little more forgiving and you don’t mind the cold too much, a great idea for the family would be to get out into the wild and go camping for a weekend. It can be good sometimes to get away from technology and the city, and being within nature for a few days will be fun for you all. Plus, you’ll get to teach the kids how to light a fire and cook on it!
Fun Family Activities – Movie Night
For those cold days in winter where you all feel like hibernating in the house for the day the ideal thing to do would be to have a movie night with your favorite flicks. Now that it’s nearly Christmas you could go for a festive marathon and shut all of the blinds, turn down the lights and get the volume up. Bring in some popcorn and chocolates and you have the ideal winter activity.
For a weekend day when you want to have a little bit of fun with your food, you can get everyone in the family to design and make their own pizzas. You can either buy some dough or get the kids to help you make it, and then comes the fun part. Layout toppings such as pepperoni, chicken, peppers, onion, and sweetcorn and let everyone dive in and fill their pizza with whatever they want!
Fun Family Activities – A Trip to the Zoo
The zoo will always be a popular destination for kids because children love animals, and this weekend if you are at a loose end this is the ideal activity to try. You can spend the day teaching the kids about animals and nature and they will get to see some of the most fascinating and endangered creatures in the whole world. You can even get your child a disposable camera for the day so that they can have fun capturing each animal.
