As most of us barely have time to bond with our families during the workweek, we should all make an effort to spend quality time with our loved ones during the weekend. Let’s take a look at some simple yet fun weekend activities the whole family can enjoy.
Physical activities promise not only to be fun and engaging, but healthy as well. For one, you can ride your bicycles or tow your young kids using a bucket bike – offered by online bike stores such as MADSEN Cycles – around the neighborhood.
If you have teenagers, try to get everyone’s competitive juices flowing by playing 3×3 basketball in your backyard. Going for a run (and having a picnic afterward!) in the local park can also make for a great weekend family bonding activity.
For a more relaxing yet creative time with the family, consider doing art activities during weekends. Of course, drawing, sketching, painting, and coloring will always be great family-bonding activities. You can also ask everyone to design their very own pages in the family scrapbook you’re putting together.
Bead art can likewise be fun as the ladies in the family can string beads to create bracelets and necklaces while the gents can place the beads on pegboards to form their favorite superheroes.
Lastly, activities that everyone in the family can enjoy while also learning are great options for your weekend family bonding time. Visit zoos, aquariums, planetariums, and museums and reinforce what the family, especially the children, has already learned about natural science, history and others in school.
To experience the environment in a more natural setting, you can go on camping or fishing trips or simply hang out in the park or at the beach as well.
Weekends maybe our time to take a breather from our busy work life, but our days free from work we should use to have quality time with our families.
