  • Visit a museum
  • Try geocaching – it’s like a modern-day treasure hunt!
  • Take a trip to the beach – there’s so many fun things to do while you’re there!

Family Fun Friday

  • Head out for a picnic. Rainy day? Indoor picnics are just as fun!
  • Watch a family movie with popcorn
  • Hold a hula hoop contest. How many twirls can everyone do?
  • Hold a teddy bear tea party
  • For a real family experience, grab the tent and sleeping bags and camp out in the backyard.

Selfless Saturday

Today it’s time to do something nice for someone else.

If you need some inspiration, check out our list of random acts of kindness to inspire your own family activities – see how many you can tick off!

Yes Day Sunday

The idea behind a Yes Day is that your child gets to decide what you do together – and you say “yes”. It’s that simple. Just let your child be in charge to plan some one-on-one or family time, we guarantee you will be surprised at the results and have a ball together.
