Life gets really busy, and all of us moms would love a bit more quality time with our children. These fun ideas for activities you can do with your child fit neatly into half a Sunday, fun guaranteed!
- Take a drive out to the country
A short road trip somewhere out in the country could be a great bonding experience. With some music playing and snacks for the road, a change in scenery will open your child’s eyes to a wider world. You get to be like a tourist and they get see farm animals, learn about the natural world and get out of the urban space.
- Spend time in the park
A park visit gets them social, gets them outside and gets them social. If you don’t already know of one, ask your mom friends where to find a safe, clean park you can take your child to for some fun. Pack a blanket, a soccer/rugby/tennis ball, some snacks and refreshments, and head out for half a day.
- Go to a museum
Most towns have museums, and most of the time, we don’t pay them any mind at all. While it’s a day out, it is also an educational experience. Whether it’s the mine shaft museum outside of town or the national gallery, a dip into our country’s history and culture is valuable. They’re perfect for rainy days, too. If you don’t know of any in your town, use this museum directory to find out if there is one and what it’s all about.
