7 Fabulously Fun Family Activities to Bring You Closer Together

What should you do when it comes to a brilliant time to come together as a family and enjoy long sunny days? There are so many fun family activities available, we’ve compiled 7 of them to set you on your way.

1. Visit museums

Museum trips have a knack of sticking in your memory, creating many positive moments for your young ones, museums open up a world of imagination and exploration as well. “Museums offer a dynamic opportunity to expose children to experiences and explore new things in a rich and educational environment.” Said by Sara Choi, Education Program Manager.

2. Cook!

Teach your kids some skills in the kitchen, or learn some new ones yourself. The most important thing about cooking is that it's fun, but also an opportunity to instill some healthy tips into your family's life

3. Have a picnic

A picnic is a great opportunity to make your child feel loved and heard. Also, playing small family games with picnic games will also help your family bond. Fresh air has been proven to be good for children's physical and mental health. Having a picnic on a sunny day also helps with vitamin D and calcium absorption.

4. Do some chores (in a fun way)

Completing household chores promotes the development of many essential skills necessary for success in life. For younger children, performing simple chores like folding clothes or helping make a bed can improve coordination and motor skills. Completing chores also increases a child's sense of responsibility and helps develop planning and organizational skills.

5. Take a road Trip

Most families have busy schedules, whether it's a parent working full-time and caring for a child, or a child attending school and participating in extracurricular activities. Taking a family road trip together will give you the opportunity to get rid of all the daily worries. It allows you to forget about work, school or anything else that is stressing you out and focus on having fun with your family. Plus, when you're relaxed, it's easier to really engage and engage with the moment, which means you're actually able to enjoy each other's company.

6. Make a time capsule

These are endlessly fascinating – capture your moment in time, then catch up with it a number of years later (or not at all, leaving it for future generations to find). You need an airtight box, but other than that feel free to add in whatever modern day knickknacks you feel best summarise life in the past.

7. Take on an epic jigsaw puzzle

Find the most ridiculously over-complicated jigsaw you can – turn it into a project! You can keep a record of it as you progress through the year (take pictures etc.), whilst working on it as a family, or alone. There’s a certain serenity to completing a jigsaw puzzle piece by piece. Plus, it’s highly rewarding at the end that in turn leads to a more functional and cohesive family life.
