These days, far too many kids stay glued to their gadgets indoors for hours on end instead of engaging in activities outside. As such, parents need to get creative to encourage their kids to leave the house and enjoy some quality family bonding time. First, decide on the right activity and outdoor venue. Below are some ideas for memorable bonding time with your kids.
Outdoor Family Activities
1. Interactive Soccer Games
Soccer creates a competitive environment between children and their parents and is an excellent exercise, too. Make it more fun by inviting other families to join in. Let it be a game between the kids and their parents, and have some awards or prizes ready for the MVPs.
2. Bonfire Nights
Let your kids roast marshmallows or create s'mores by the campfire. Use the time to share some childhood stories with your kids. If they love music, get your guitar and let them sing along. If something strikes you, compose a melody or two with your children.
3. Horseback Riding
Another unique activity an outdoor venue may offer is horseback riding. It's an excellent way for your kids to explore an area, bond with horses, and nurture their love for animals. It can also help build their confidence, as riding these animals is not an activity everyone has the guts to try out. For your family's safety, find areas where instructors can teach and guide riders safely.
