It’s the weekend! In line with our article last week on how to de-stress and unwind at the end of a busy week, another great tip is spend some quality time doing fun activities with your kids, partner, family and friends (not that we have to tell you!).

If you’re lost for some great ideas on how to spend some time with your family this weekend, here are some fun tips to help you relax, enjoy and spend quality time with those you love!

Go for a hike/walk/ play in the park and get in touch with nature!

This is great way for the kids to burn off energy and for you to get some exercise in. The fresh air will do wonders for both you and your children and there’s nothing cooler than exploring a new place or park.

Do some cooking (everything from making pizzas to sweets)

One of our favourite activities is to cook with our kids, whether it’s something as easy as stirring the bowel when making yummy sweets or help making pizza dough from scratch for older children. This is a fun way to learn new skills and to create something they’ll love to eat as well!

Have a movie night

Winter is the best time of year for a movie night for the whole family. Cook some popcorn, get a blanket and sit on the couch to watch a family favourite.

Go somewhere new

You don’t have to afford a weekend away, just a drive to the other side of town, whether the beach, a new shopping centre, a cool park – the options are endless.

Play games

No matter what age your children are, board games, card games, guessing games and so many more are fun ways to have a laugh and relax with your family.
