With the warmer weather here, why not take advantage of spending it doing fun family activities. We know that your kids are just dying to go outside and get some sun so we have a few ideas that you should definitely take advantage of. Depending on where you live, some of these activities might apply more than others, but typically these are things you can do anywhere. These ideas are not anything new, but sometimes it’s nice to have a reminder that there are plenty of fun things you can do with your kids without spending a ton of money. In fact, most of these activities are things you can do for free!
1. Picnic at the park.
This is something so simple, but so enjoyable. Change up family dinner a bit and choose to make something that you can easily eat together on a blanket or at a picnic table. Your kids can bring balls, scooters, or whatever they think would be fun to play at the park. Take advantage of the time you are there with your kids and play the games with them. We know that you will make their day by joining. Playing outside and getting some fresh air is not just what every kid needs, but adults too. I promise it will be worth it. If you don’t want to take a huge meal, you could just do a fun dessert like Popsicle's. It really will be so fun!
2. Easy Walk Around the Neighborhood
Maybe you don’t have any parks around, but that doesn’t mean you can’t spend anytime outside. Go take a walk around your neighborhood. Go explore with your kids. The fresh air will feel so good and your kids will honestly love spending the time with you outside. If you have little ones you can take them in the stroller. If you have older ones, let them ride their scooters or their bikes or whatever they want to get around in. You all can just walk as well, but either way it is a simple way to spend time together and spend it outside.
3. Family bike ride.
Some may not own bikes, but for those of you that do, this is something that you definitely should take advantage of, especially if you have any cool trails near you. Your kids love riding their bikes, but they may be bored with only riding them around the nearby streets. Instead you guys could all explore new trails. One thing you could also do is ride your bikes to the nearest ice cream shop and go get some ice cream. Your kids will love this because it is a way for them to let out all their energy and enjoy being outside with the family. You could also all ride together to a park and let you kids run around there for a while. Whatever you choose, this is one activity that you kids are sure to love!
