Top Tips for Family Fun This Weekend


Sometimes, when it comes to adults planning what to do for the weekend, it can be tricky, but when you have kids to account for, it can become so much more difficult. There are many ways to keep you and the kids occupied, all you have to do sit back and think up an interesting activity.

Go on a Vacation

It isn’t too late to plan a quick getaway if a vacation is something you’d like to do with your family. You don’t have to go anywhere far away if it is too expensive. Instead, you could travel to a neighboring city and stay for a weekend.

There are a few cities that are nice to travel to during the holidays and here are three in particular.

  1. Leavenworth, WA - If you want to go somewhere that has the holiday spirit, then try Leavenworth Washington. It is likely to give you an alpine feel and 21 miles of lights along homes and fences. Additionally, there should be concerts, harp music and festivals amongst other activities.
  2. Woodstock, Vermont - Another destination to try is Vermont as it tends to look like a dream all year round.
  3. Frankenmuth, Michigan – Explore this beauty of Michigan with your kids. You won’t regret it.

Attend Events

Throughout the year, there are usually numerous events taking place to attend to the needs of all of the families who are off work and looking for things to do. If you’re one of those families, do some research to see what’s going on in your area. You can also check as they tend to have a number of events that fall into various categories. Here are a few you may want to consider:

  • Concert – Ask your kids who their favorite artists are, and surprise them with tickets. They’ll never forget the time their awesome parents took them to see their idol.
  • Theater Show - Another fun and memorable place you could go with your loved ones is to see a theater show. Family-friendly theater shows include Disney on Ice and Paw Patrol Live.
  • Have Fun at Home If all else fails, don’t be afraid to have fun of your own during the weekend. Of course, you can rope in your kids and, for instance, show them how to cook and bake kid-friendly recipes, or if they don’t enjoy spending time in the kitchen, spend time outside in the fresh air.

Great recipes to cook and bake together include:

  • Lemon and yogurt chicken flatbreads
  • Chocolate chip cookies
  • Pineapple and pork skewers
  • Ice cream
  • Sticky stick biscuits
  • Unicorn cupcakes

When it comes to baking cupcakes and cookies, however, do not be afraid to let their imaginations wonder. Have them ice and design their own cupcakes and then have them present them to you; the best one can eat their cupcake in peace while the other one washes the mixing bowl.

For sporting activities, you can watch your kids ride their bikes, treat them to a pair of roller skates or skateboard, or teach them how to play tennis or cricket.
