After your work week is finished, it is important to donate
at least one day or a good portion of one to family
entertainment for the kids. It will help
strengthen the bond between you and your children. You can pick a set activity
you all enjoy or rotate things to keep it interesting. One things parents have
difficulties with is coming up with ideas. Fortunately, there are five ideas
below for you to pick from, and if you can, try and find several for your
family to keep things interesting.
a Family Picnic at the Park with a Twist
You can make the average family
picnic more interesting if you bring along a paint set. If you did, then great.
First, secure your picnic blanket with large, grey rocks preferably brought
from home. Next, make sure your kids eat a healthy lunch and are nice and full.
Let them run off their meal and play for a while. Then, bring out the paint
set, and you guys can do some artwork on the rocks while you talk to your kids
about their week and yours.
out a Sporting Event
If you live a couple hours away, you
can make this more fun by playing road games in the car or just talking with the
kids. Whether your children like watching sports or not is does not matter
because seeing an event live is much better than watching a boring event at
home on television. There is cheering and infectious excitement.
Family Movie Marathon
Picking family oriented television
series or movies to spend a weekend afternoon binge watching with your children
is a great way to bond with them. Netflix has a family option for programming
specialized for family viewing and younger audiences perfect for binge watching.
The downside is there might be a series or movie you and your children are fond
of, but it might not be available, or Netflix often rotates things in and out.
Also, you might find a series or movies worth keeping and adding to your film
library, so you might want to consider purchasing them purchasing them to keep.
There are many great venues to purchase movies and series, and you will want to
find a place similar to Pristine Sales
that offers family oriented movies with sales and incentives.
a Culture or Learning Day
Places like zoos and museums are a
lot of family fun. Zoos might be the more attractive option, but there are
usually exhibits at museums tailored for children. Science center’s always have
things geared toward children. You and your kids can learn and be entertained.
Is Nothing Wrong With a Game Night
This may seem old fashion, but if
you liked it as a kid, your kids will probably like it. Spend an afternoon or
evening playing Uno, Monopoly or Jenga. Really, you can play whatever you want.
If everyone likes the game and has a chance of winning, it is a great way to
bond, and your kids learn strategy and patience at the same time.
Spending time as a family is important. Bonding over a family night dedicated
to family entertainment is just as important as trying to eat a family together
once a day. Later in life, you and your children will look back on those
