Looking for something fun to do with the kids on International Day of Families? There are so many exciting activities for your family to enjoy this special day.
The International Day of Families was brought about by the United Nations (UN) in 1993 to promote the importance of maintaining a happy and healthy family relationship. What better way to celebrate this special day than enjoying every minute of it with your family?
Every family is unique. Depending on what your family likes to do, we are sure that you’ll pick something from our list of family activities below.
1. Ride a Bike
Spend an afternoon riding a bike with your family. It’s a healthy and fun way to bond with your kids.
2. Visit a Library
Go to the library and pick out some classics and great bedtime stories you can read for the week. Some libraries also offer fun reading activities like free story time for kids.
Connect with nature by taking a hike with your family. If it’s your first time to hike and you’re unsure of what to do, you can contact a local hiking center for guided hikes.
4. Go Camping
Take the family to the nearest campsite. If you can’t find a camping spot nearby, just pitch a tent in your backyard. Make each moment worthwhile by reading stories or roasting some marshmallows.
5. Play Board Games
Clear off the table, grab some snacks, and challenge your family to a competitive board game. Choose from the all-time favorites—chess, checkers, or scrabble.
No board game at home? Get some markers and cardboard and create your own family board game.
