With the children off school and all together to enjoy this time together, here is a gathering of about twenty activities at a lower cost to create beautiful family memories during this Spring Break.
- Cook with your family
Although it can be messy, nothing is more fun than preparing a good snack together and then having the pleasure of enjoying it with your family. From an early age, children love to discover. Take the opportunity to include them in the preparation of a dish and see the joy in their eyes!
- Photoshoot" for pleasure
Dress up all chic or according to a theme, and then take a series of shots. Beautiful memories to keep for many years! We never take enough pictures so here is a great opportunity!
- Make a marathon!
We are talking about a marathon of movies and television series. Everyone in pajamas and we take the opportunity to stick with family in these last days of cold weather. You are more active type in life? Create a marathon or obstacle course that you name in honor of your family and give yourself some challenges!
- Spring cleaning
Whether cleaning wardrobes or storing kitchen cabinets, do it with family! Children love when we get them involved, adapt their task according to their age and sweep! Put some music, all without stress, and your spring cleaning will be done!
- Visit a museum
In addition to getting you out of the house to get out of your winter, you will make your children discover full of beautiful works of all kinds!
Did you go to the museum to discover works or did you see a great idea in a magazine? Why not give free rein to your imagination and that of your child by creating works of art yourself? Take out the glue, the paper, the scissors, the felts, the aprons and presto! We start DIY!
- Board Games
Take out the board games and play with your family! The first game to play will be chosen by the youngest, and then by going in order of age. The game is not very well understood by the youngest? No worries, give him a simple thing to do (for example hold your cards or move the pawn on the table) and everyone will find his account!
Whether to go to the park or just a relaxing family walk, take the opportunity to go out walking together. Instead of going to the convenience store by car, why not all go on foot? A good reason to enjoy this family time!
Do you like skating or would you have liked to go there? No problem, many indoor rinks offer free skating on an established schedule. At a lower cost, a great activity to go out and stretch!
Did you know? Many restaurants offer lower-cost meals or even free meals for young children. A nice family outing to make a change that gives parents a respite from the dishes and makes children happy!
- Make a day in reverse!
Dress upside down! Start with the dessert instead of the meal! Do everything you normally do, but reversed! Guaranteed fun!
- Put aside the routine!
Enjoy every moment with your little ones. Take a family walk in the evening just before bedtime! Oh yes! Why not? Do things that are difficult to do in daily routine!
- A pajama day!
You went out to play with the children one day, the next day, why not take the opportunity to make a day pajamas and slippers, and relax! Put on a movie, with a good popcorn and stick to each other, all together.
- A day for the couple!
You certainly have those family members around you who would like to enjoy a day with your little ones. Do not hesitate to call on members close to you for a couple reunion. Yes you are parents but before all this you were a couple, needless to remember that this link is just as important! So let grandma cook with your little ones, or let the aunt go for a walk with your children, take time for yourself: why not!
- Go for a ride in a nature park with snowshoes or cross-country skis. Your child is too small to follow? No problem! Install it comfortably in a sleigh and enjoy the fresh air!
- Organize a picnic!
It's not normally in summer that you have a picnic? Why not make one in winter, right in the middle of the living room. Invite your children's friends and do things differently! It feels so good to do otherwise!
- Do you just want to relax?
Why not just take one day at a time, without worrying about the rest, and do what's right now? We all know that children have fun with everything and nothing. Invent a completely crazy idea and run it! Your children will be just happy!
- Would you like to enjoy this and of winter outside?
Make an igloo, a snowman, go slide with family, make a snowball battle! Dare!
- Stay inside?
Are you more of the type who wants to enjoy your living room? Make a cushioned hut with blankets, and when you're done, sit in it and read a taly in family, or tell stories.
- A family concert!
Create musical instruments from your recycling bin and cabinet bottoms. Some rice in a plastic bottle and here is a maracas! Plastic plates with spoons and here is a cheap drum! Have fun creating with your kids, simply!
Sherpa Canada wishes you a wonderful Spring Break and lots of family love!
