There is nothing more precious than family time! If you are looking for fun things to do as a family this weekend why not choose an outdoor activity? If the weather is nice it’s always important to encourage your children to be active. With that in mind read on to see some suggestions for activities to enjoy as a family this weekend.
Kite flying – This is the ultimate outdoor activity that all of the family can enjoy. You can increase the fun by getting everyone to create their own kite, enabling them to decorate their kite with different colours and patterns.
Nature exploration – Nature is an incredible thing and children should be taught about it from a young age. Enable them to explore the soil, bugs, worms, flowers, trees, grass, and all of the other wonderful things around them. There are so many incredible national parks for the family to enjoy. Or, why not take a trip to a nearby beach? Children will always love a day out like this.
Camping– Why not make a weekend of it and go camping? You don’t have to go out into the wilderness and you can even go camping in your back garden. All you need is a few sleeping bags and a tent. You can even make a bonfire if your garden permits. Of course you will need to be extra careful and it does depend on the age of your children. You can count the stars and enjoy singing songs.
Sports day – Why not host your own sports day? Or how about a ‘survivor’ challenge? You can come up with an assortment of challenges for everyone to compete in. You will need a reward so buy medals for the winner and the runner-up and this will get everyone excited. The good thing about this activity is that it does not cost a lot and you can do it from the comfort of your own garden. Why not invite some of your children’s friends along to join in on the fun?
Trampoline jumping – Not only is trampoline jumping so much fun but it is a great way for children and parents to be healthier too. You won’t even feel like you are exercising! Your children are bound to love tumbling and bouncing on the trampoline. You don’t have to buy a trampoline for your garden either there are so many trampoline centres across the country now. They enable you to have hours of fun on endless streams of trampolines.
Build a den or a treehouse – Last but not least why not build a den or a treehouse as a family? This is a great activity which will keep them entertained for several hour and is bound to get your little ones excited. Not only will they have fun building the den or tree house but they will have plenty of fun playing in it as well.
