There are just so many fun things you can do with the family but sometimes you just need a memory jogger when you are wondering what to get up to next so here's just a few suggestions of free things you can get up to ...
Head out on a Bike Ride - Get the bikes out and go for a family ride. Whether just a quick lap around the block or trip to the park or dairy with an icecream stop can be fun. If you're looking for a longer adventure check your local council website which should provide local cycle tracks and details
Play Charades or Board Games - Play a few shorter board games or one long one. Add competition by having prizes for the winners! If you play charades add in some personalised ones - make one up each and get the others to act out - there are plenty of charade ideas on the internet too if you get stuck for ideas.
Have a movie day or night - Don't just pick the movies together but prepare together. Pop the popcorn, make up lolly bags, rearrange the room with pillows and cushions, perhaps issue tickets for the kids and set the stage for a fun family time.
Visit the museum - If you have a large museum near you pick one department to visit. Maybe make it into a game and pick 2-3 things each you can ask the others questions on when you get home just to see if they saw the same things as you on your trip!
Spend the evening Star Gazing - Head out after dark, if you don't have a telescope take a pair of binoculars. Have a chart of the constellations and see how many you can see. See if you can see different shapes in the stars. If you are in your garden set up a picnic with hot chocolate and a goodie tray or if you are heading out fill the flask. Whatever you do it's bound to be both educational and loads of fun
Cook Together - Pick a course each and make your dishes as a group. Alternatively split into teams and compete in your cooking see what comes out best or most tasty - don't argue though and enjoy a sumptuous and perhaps unusual meal at the end!
These are just a few suggestions. Lots more in another post soon ...
