Whether you’re looking for things to do indoors or outdoors, we’ve got you covered. So pop on over and enjoy!
Go to the Park
There’s nothing like a busy weekend at the park! Whether you’re there for a game of tag or some swings, making it a family affair is sure to be fun. And with snacks and drinks in tow, you’ll have no need to stress about anything else. So pack your bags and head on over – there’s plenty of fun waiting for you!
Play Board Games
Board games are a great way to wind down after a long day and have some fun. Some popular choices include Snakes and Ladders, Monopoly etcetera. There are many different types of board games that cater to all age groups, so it’s sure your child will find one they love! Make sure you get involved in picking the game your family wants to play – there’s no better way for everyone in the family to get engaged and enjoy themselves. Not only will this relax both of you, but it might also lead to new conversations and memories about the game!
Tidy The Garden
You could do both a fun and important weekend activity by tidying up the garden. Try tidying up leaves, cutting the grass, or cleaning out the shed and gutters. You can get the kids involved with most garden tasks by making it fun, however tasks such as gutter cleaning requires a bit more expertise and are more dangerous. You could call in the experts here and spend more of your time doing other fun weekend activities.
Play Card Games
There are so many great card games out there to choose from! Not only that, but they’re also a fun way for kids to get active and learn new things. The best part is that you don’t even have to buy any special cards – just gather some friends and start playing! Some of our favourites include Go Fish, Uno, Crazy Eights, etc. Card games can be used as a tool for developing strategy skills and teamwork. They can help improve problem-solving skills too – after all, who doesn’t love beating their opponents by using their head more than their hands?
Have a Bonfire or Campfire
There’s something special about spending time around a bonfire or campfire. Kids love it, and so do you! Making sure to have plenty of firewood nearby is important – this activity requires preparation. So, get busy chopping the wood and making sure that everything is in order before firing up the outdoor blaze! Then there are all sorts of activities you can undertake with your family around a roaring fire. You could start by teaching them about safety precautions while camping outdoors. Next, make some marshmallows together or set up some tents for an overnight adventure into the great outdoors! And don’t forget to enjoy each other’s company – this momentous occasion deserves nothing but fun and laughter!
Pick Strawberries or Other Fruit
This summer, why not get the kids involved in picking fruit? There are plenty of choices out there – strawberries, raspberries, blackberries etc. If you’re up for it, go ahead and give blueberry picking a try! Picking fruit is sure to be a fun weekend activity that will result in great food on your table. Not only that but time spent outside enjoying nature is never a bad thing!
There’s nothing like a good fishing trip to get the whole family out and enjoy some fresh air! Fishing can be enjoyed by both kids and adults, making it perfect for any time of year. To make things as fun as possible, make sure to pack your insect repellent, sunscreen and water bottles. Kids will love catching all sorts of fishy friends on their own – so there’s no need to stress about disappointing them! In fact, you might even end up spending more time fishing than you originally anticipated! Once you’ve found the right spot – whether it be along a river or lake – start preparing your bait gear. There are many different types of fishing available and each one brings its own set of challenges (and rewards!). Be prepared to experiment a bit; after all, this is supposed to be an enjoyable experience not just work. And if that doesn’t suit your fancy, don’t worry: there are plenty of other outdoor activities waiting for you!
