I don’t know about you, but I feel that the whole ‘let’s put on another happy face because we have a kids party’ to go to is draining! Yes, you get to catch up with a few of the other parents that are attending, but it’s not genuinely fun activity for you is it? Happily, there are some things you can do with your kids that you will get to enjoy as well. Find out who they are by reading the post below.
Kayaking can be a super fun way to kill an afternoon with the family, and you will find there are a lot of centres and waters ways that offer this through the UK.
One of the best things about it is that you don’t have to have all of your gear, as you can rent life jackets, paddles, and the boat itself. Although, it is worth knowing that there are relatively reasonably priced inflatable kayaks on the market if you are looking to make a long-term investment this activity.
Of course, you may be a little nervous if taking the kids out on the water if you haven’t done it before. Luckily, you can always get them started with a training course or in a shallow waterway or lake, and then build up their confidence and skill over time. Then you will have a fun family activity that everyone can enjoy together regularly, instead of mum and dad just spending their time on the sidelines.
Visiting an escape room is one of the scarce activities that parents and kids of all ages can enjoy together. This reason for this is because an escape room is something that can be suitable for a range of ages and allows them all to work together to solve a puzzle so they can be released!
Escape rooms can be challanging and fun!
Of course, the kids will especially love this activity as they get to use their sleuthing skills to find clues and secret doors. You can also bet that when they get to solve or find something their parents can’t, it’s a massive win for them!
Often, you pay per room for the experience, and you’ll be pleased to know there are often helpers on hand to give you a few tops in case you get stuck too. Something that makes this sort of activity great for families of all ages and sizes.
OK, so play barns can be a bit controversial in the parent world. Some folks think they are the best things since sliced bread and some people hate them.
Now, what you think is entirely down to your own view, but the fact that you can leave the kids somewhere fun and safe and grab a cup of coffee nearby and have a chat with another adult is a lifesaver for many people! They aren’t too expensive either, so if you are feeling in need of a little me time, this is definitely one option to consider.
