Four Tips For Finding New And Creative Things To Do With The Family

Stay Connected

Family bonding time getting boring? You could get a little creative and find some new things to do together. Not every family night needs to be about board games and having dinner together.

Get your family out of the house every once in awhile. You can do things in your own hometown over the course of an hour, or a few, or if you have a whole day or even a whole weekend to waste you could get even more adventurous.

Go To An Expo

Consider loading the family up and heading to the local event center to take in whatever fun expo may be in town. Even RV and boat shows can be fun for the whole family since they let every check out these things and maybe even walk away with some free swag, like pens, hats, and frisbees. You might even find a great deal on a boat or RV and have something else fun to do with the family the next time you take an adventure.

Take some time to find out about what expos come to your town or near your town. You may find anything from pet expos to gluten free expos. Some may be less family friendly, but expos are always great for window shopping, people watching, and getting free promotional materials from local and national businesses.

Take A Class Together

If you have a local recreational center you may want to look into what types of classes they offer for adults and for kids. You might be able to take a cooking class together or maybe even an art class. Kids love to learn and they’ll have even more fun learning when their parents are doing it with them.

Go On A Scavenger Hunt

Geocaching is the new way to scavenger hunt, and it all it takes is GPS and a geocaching website. You’ll get tips and coordinates to find hidden little boxes around your town or parks. Most of the time you can swap some little trinket or there will be a little notebook for you to leave your name or a note in. Some are hard to find and some are much easier.

Tour Your Town Or State

Take a day to take a tour of your own hometown with your kids. Walk the parks, look through the shops, check out the library, go see a movie, go to the beach, or take some time strolling through the museum. No matter how small or big your town in there is surely something to check out there and it can make for a great adventure with the family.

If you have more than a day, like maybe a whole weekend, consider loading up the vehicle and checking out some towns outside your own. Have a whole week? Take a state tour and visit some of the roadside attractions other places in your home state have to offer.
