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
