The best family time activity ideas
Have a family braai.
When the weather is nice and hot outside, gather all your necessities and head outdoors for a great day of braaing as a family. You can have the kids help out with some of the dishes and drinks while you get the fire going to cook some yummy foods for your family. It’s really a great way of spending time together as a family and allows everyone to reconnect with nature and soak up some much-needed vitamin D!
Have an at-home family photo shoot.
Try getting everyone ready and dressed up for a day of taking pictures. Have the kids take the snaps, alternating roles every now and again, as the rest of you dress up in your finest clothes and pose for pretty family snaps.
Create a time capsule and bury it in the backyard.
Have your kids write down their life missions and values on a piece of paper. This should include their dreams and their aspirations, who and where they’d like to be in ten years’ time. Once all family members have written down their thoughts, place everybody’s notes inside a sealed container and then bury it in the backyard. In five or even ten years then you can dig up the capsule as a family and then see how everybody has grown over the years.
Visit a local farm.
Aside from the fun factor, visiting the local farms in your community can help your kids stay balanced and aware of the world they are living in. It helps them see where their food comes from and what hard work goes into the process. With the aim of teaching your kids about living and eating as healthily as possible, this activity also reinforces the idea that fresh is best your, my kids.
Get crafty together.
Kids LOVE drawing, painting, building and creating, so if there was ever a time to re-ignite that childhood spark within you, it’s NOW that you have a family. Make sure that you plan some special time to just sit down with your family and paint, draw, colour, or even build with Lego. We promise you, this isn’t only for kids, and adults tend to have way more fun than the little ones with these activities.
