Being able to spend time together as a family is an amazing feeling. In this day and age with work schedules and carting the kids off here, there and everywhere, it can become a rarity for everyone in your family to be around at one point for some well deserved family time. Now that we’re finally out of the horrible winter and entering spring time, we can look forward to some brighter days to enjoy together as a family. Now is the perfect time to begin thinking about things that you could be getting up to that will entertain everyone and really bring you together as a family. Here are 4 ways to treat the family this spring time.
While the weather might not quite be at the point where you can set up a towel on the beach and tan the day away, a trip to the beach can provide lots of fun for the whole family. Pack a picnic, grab the frisbee and the football and head down for a day of kickabouts, fun family frisbee games, and plenty of picture worthy moments to capture for the albums.
Camping is a wonderful way of getting the family outside to enjoy some time together with no distractions like computer games or TV programmes. Supacentre offer a wide range of camping gear from tents to camping stoves and can completely kit you out for many more camping trips to come. See their page for more information and to check out their wide range of camping accessories! Head out camping with the family this spring time! Don’t forget the card games to enjoy around the campfire!
Have a junk food and pyjama day
There’s something amazing about not getting dressed all day. It allows you to properly relax and feel like yourself again. Why not stock up on yummy treats, stay in your pyjamas and have a family day watching all of your favourite movies? It’s a great way to spark conversation and really get to enjoy each other’s company! Check out this list of family friendly films if you’re stuck for ideas on what to watch!
Do some DIY
A great way to be productive and keep the children entertained is to get them involved in some DIY work that needs doing. While they can’t do anything that involves dangerous machinery, giving them a paint brush or a trowel to help plant some new shrubbery in the garden will keep them entertained and have them feeling like they’re really helping you out. Why not use your family time to improve your home so that you can all enjoy it together feeling proud of your hard work?
Try these four different ideas this spring time with your family and really begin to enjoy each other’s company. Don’t forget to always keep your camera handy, because moments pass too quickly!
