Family Fridays: 5 Family Activities to Try Today

Friday, January 13, 2017

It's Family Friday! Here is a list of five things you can do with your family today! Many of them are free, or at least inexpensive. But all of them have the potential to create some fun memories. 

1. Go to the park.



Grab a picnic blanket, pack a lunch & go to the park. It sounds like a cliché, but just getting outside and changing your environment is half the fun. Eat on the ground, play a game of I-spy, make an obstacle course and have the kids beat their best times, lay back and discover pictures in the clouds. The sky is the limit! Literally, if you're cloud watching!

2. Go bowling.




There’s nothing like the look on a kid's face the first time they knock a bunch of pins down!

3. Go rock hounding. 


This is a favorite in our home. Mr. Incredible and Pirate try and find unusual and special rocks, they bring their rocks home and identify them through books and online. Pirate loves to collect rocks in general. Mr. Incredible loves the science behind different rocks. They collect rocks from all over the place: along creeks, in the woods, Pirate even found a rock today from digging in the dirt alongside our driveway. Youtube has countless videos on the subject. Who knows, you may even stumble upon gold or kryptonite.

4. Go fishing.




It’s one of the great and quiet past times. A great way to enjoy being out in nature. Unless of course you’re scared of fish, like me. But that’s a whole different blog post! Be sure to check your local area for the rules. You may need a fishing license. In our area, anyone under 16 can fish without a fishing license.

5. A Sunday drive.




This may sound like a thing of the past, but it doesn’t have to be. Clear your day; load up in the car, and drive. No destination necessary, no rush. Just enjoy each other’s company and see where the road takes you. You may end up at a historical battlefield like we did. 


You can be a rebel and pick any day of the week. Of course, just make sure you have enough gas in the tank to get back home!


And with enough fun and excitement, the little ones might nap the entire way home. That's my list, what's on yours? Comment below with your favorite family activity or something on your family is excited to try!


** Note: Please, always be mindful where you go and what you do. Use good judgment regarding safety, local laws, and any other thing I haven't yet thought of.

    1. Really? You might like it! I always enjoyed fishing... if someone else would take it off the hook for me! It's relaxing.
