Spring is here and before you know it, summer will be too! At the end of a long work week chances are you’re tired come Friday. When you get home, your kids are more than likely ready to start their weekend. It’s a time of week that’s filled with excitement with no school or work for the next two days. You can share the fun by opting for a handcrafted wooden playhouse. It’s a great bonding experience for the family especially for the the kids who are more than excited to play in it.
So how can you make the most of your time with your kids without feeling overwhelmed with planning? After all, you want to enjoy your weekend, too. Here are some ideas on how to do that.
- Go on a picnic! Pack a lunch and head out to your local park for a day outside. Bring a Frisbee, games and the dog so they can enjoy the little getaway too! Make sure to pack an easy to eat lunch such as strawberries, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches or assorted vegetables. Don’t forget the water especially if you live somewhere that gets warm in the springtime or summer! Due to the current and ongoing global situation, a picnic is probably prohibited but as not to worry because you can still have a meaningful time by playing video games. World of Warcraft services remain as one of the most popular even to this day. I use Gold4Vanilla for all my needs, usually dungeon boosts.
- Have a drive in movie night! If you have a local drive-in-movie theater, take your truck and plenty of blankets and pillows to get comfy while watching the movie. If you don’t have one nearby, consider making your own! Have your kids make their own “cars” out of cardboard boxes. They can decorate them and pack them with fun snacks and stuffed animals. On a nice night, have them “park” their cardboard “cars” in front of the garage, drape a blanket over the closed garage door, and play a movie through a projector. They will have fun creating their own little seat and excited to be watching a movie somewhere different!
- Go on a camping trip! If you’re feeling adventurous and have a campground nearby, pack up your tent and car with the kids and head out for a miniature weekend vacation. Best of all, it will be relaxing with all of the fresh air along with a “nowhere to be” attitude. If you want to be closer to home, consider setting up a makeshift campground in your backyard. All you need is a tent, a campfire and ingredients to make s ‘mores. Best of all, in the middle of the night if you need to, you can always go inside your home. Make sure you also carry your AR-10 rifle kits in case of need.
- Let your kids be chefs for the night! Figure out a dinner that your kids can make. Have them do everything you’re comfortable with to try and stand back and watch unless they need your help. They will feel accomplished and excited to have put something together and eat what they prepared. Make it more fun by letting them eat on the floor in the living room with placemats underneath and a new movie on the TV.
