27 Fun Family Activities to Try at Home or Near By

Apr 14, 2022 | Everyday Life, Family Life, Fun & Games | 0 comments

This year as a family we are focusing on connecting with each other. One way you can connect more with your family is by doing more activities that you know your kids will love. There are so many fun things you can do together. I made a list to help you decide what to plan. It definitely helps to plan some of these ahead of time because they may require you to go to a specific place or might need something from the store. But many of them are simply just fun!

 Go out and spend a little more – Activity Ideas

If you want to go out and don’t mind spending a little here a few more ideas that your family might also like.

  1. Bowling
  2. Water park – this spring break we went to an indoor waterpark (everyone had a blast) This works best if your kids are all a little older.
  3. Rollerblading
  4. Play mini-golf
  5.  Go to a fun park
  6. Go to a carnival

We love having fun as a family! It would definitely be easier to just let the kids watch TV and Jase and I could work or do whatever we need or want to get done. But that does help us connect, get fresh air, exercise, or bond with our kids and them to bond with each other. We don’t always have something planned (sometimes our family activity is watching a movie together and eating popcorn). But generally, I like to have some idea of an activity we can do. Planning ahead (though I don’t always do this) really helps me stick to the fun activities we have planned.

What activities do you like to do with your family?
