When the weekend comes around, do you tend to think that you’ll be stuck doing the same things you tend to rotate? Maybe the kids are bored of going to the same places? Maybe you can’t stand another soft play hall? Or is it that the idea of having nothing to do and the kids fighting after being cooped up in the house is driving you crazy? No matter what it is that brings you the fear, maybe what you need right now is the ability to plan a fun, wholesome family weekend? After all, it can be fun for everyone to shake things up and do something new. So in this blog post, we’re going to take a look at things you can do a little differently this weekend.
Go on a Woodland Walk
For starters, it’s always a good idea to get outside. Don’t stay inside this weekend, instead look for your nearest woodland areas or national walking trails and head out. There will always be fun for your kids to do from running and exploring to different child-specific activity centres to cafes and snack stops too!
Make a Picnic
Or what about a picnic? You could take this on the woodland walk with you (or point number four) or even head out into the garden for your picnic instead. There’s something fun about packing up lunch or making fun snacks together and making a day of it. Sometimes, you just need to take the usual daily experiences and turn them into fun moments.
Head to a Local Fair
If you know that you want to do something at the weekend, but you can’t deal with any more kids’ play centers, it might be that you want to search for county shows near me instead. Heading to a local fair that focuses on animals and agriculture could be that bit of different that you’re looking for. Or even something else entirely different that’s local to you. So think about exploring different options that are around you.
Go to the Beach
Depending on where you live, why not go to the beach for the day? Getting out to the sea air, eating fish and chips, ice creams, playing in the arcades, and just generally having a great day out could be just the wholesome family fun weekend you had in mind!
Travel Further Afield
But who says that you have to stay in the area to have fun? And before you think that this is going to cost you your week’s earnings – that also doesn’t have to be the case. It could be that you want to pack up the car, book a cheap B&B or throw the tent in the boot and head to another part of the country to explore. From seeing notable sights to exploring the local area and enjoying local fare, as long as you do a bit of research beforehand, this could be just what you all need.
