Outdoor Activities Both Kids And Adults Can Enjoy Together
Having fun in the simplest of things is one of the greatest joys of life – and no one other than kids can teach this to you better! So how about having some fun with your little kids or even grandkids? Well, here’s a list of activities that you can do together and have the best time! Read on!
Gardening: Pick up the gardening tools and get your kids to join you in the garden! Gardening is the best activity that will help you bond with your child as well as have some fun. Teach them the basics of gardening and go around plucking the ripe fruits and fresh vegetables – how about preparing a meal out of these later? You’re kids will love this activity so much, so will you! And I bet both you and your kids will look forward to this activity every week and off days!
Bike riding: Get the map out and decide the route you want to bike out with your kids – prep yourselves and your bicycles and set out! Both you and your kids will love the experience of cycling down the mountains and amidst the greenery with the wind blowing on your faces. Take along a picnic basket find a suitable location to relax and have your food out there.
You need not even go to set camp someplace far off! You can do it right in your backyard. Have a barbeque night, sing songs, dance around the fire and then snuggle off into the tents! But more importantly, here you have an opportunity to teach your kids some basic life skills – like building a fire, setting up a tent and so on. Make sure you get them involved in the process and not only the fun part of it.
Hiking: Introducing kids to hiking at an early age will help build in them a spirit of adventure. And it’s best they start under your supervision itself. Plan a hike, maybe an easier one at the start and tag your kids along. As you walk up the way, pick out berries, chomp on them. You’ve got a chance to teach your kids about everything they need to know about survival when they’re out there alone – so do it! Tell them about the rules of hiking, what to carry, what is edible, about plants they need to know and about the things they need to be aware of. Make the most of this time spent with them
It’s never too late to get that kid inside you out in the open – and outdoor activities are the best to unleash the fun part of you. So whenever you go out – camping, picnicking or anywhere else, don’t forget to revel and bask in all the fun you can have out there. Here are a few activities which will help you find child-like fun all over again!
Go hiking: You need not start off with some high difficulty trail in the beginning –start off with something light and breezy, give yourself time to adjust with the new energized activity you have taken up. And I bet you’ll fall in love with hiking – it not only pushes yourself to do better but also keeps you super fit. And is there anything better than spending time in the arms of nature, walking through, letting all the cool breeze fly past you? Don’t overthink, just get your gear and get started!
Outdoor photography: You may be an avid photographer or may wish to start off with photography – outdoor photography is perfect for all. You can sign up for photography clubs, where like-minded people set out to off-beat locations to capture what they love. So how about going along with a group of photographers on a jungle safari? Or to a bird sanctuary? Or to the backwaters of some known waterbody? You’ll love it if you try it!
Heritage walks: If history, stories of brave warriors, palaces and their grandeur fascinates you, heritage walks are for you! Go exploring the by-lanes of your city or any other place –and attempt to relive the incidents that occurred there ages ago. Don’t leave your camera behind – you’ll require it! Get in touch with an authentic heritage club, so that you get real and original information when you visit such places.
Food walks: Who said you could be an adult and not a big foodie? Yes, you can! And you can be one who loves exploring different cuisines, trying out what’s out there on the platter! And maybe you could even become a food photographer or blogger? What say? But to be one of the best among these, you have to start venturing outside and experimenting with food – I bet everyone will love this one!
So have you already decided how you’ll be spending the coming weekend?
