It is very important in today's world to stay connected to the people in your life - for it is so easy to lose contact in the fast-paced lives we live every single day! With the in-time and out-time of each family member being different, it is often on Twitter and Facebook that you come to know about what's happening in each others' lives!
One good way to stay in touch with everyone and keep the family bond strong and alive is to plan a family weekend. You know what they say, heart is where the family is.
So, let's take a look at all the fun things you can do with your family over the weekend.
Fun Family Weekend Ideas
Make really simple dishes like pasta, garlic toast, or something elaborate like a five-course meal. Give your hand at cakes, cookies, sandwiches and the likes. Cooking together will give you a lot of opportunity to actually work on something together.
If carpentry is not really your thing, you could probably paint your house. If that is too big a task, you could all paint one wall as an accent wall together and transform it the room altogether!
Add in some inside jokes, funny quotes and incidences that could go with the pictures. Dinner bills, hotel bills, could be added onto as souvenirs. You could draw, sketch, paint, add stickers and make it into a personalized photo album.
Mow the lawn, prune the plants, or add fertilizers. It is something oddly therapeutic about getting your hands dirty with mud while gardening! And your kids will love it!
You could get your kids to make banners and flyers to put up so that your neighbors, relatives, and friends telling them about the sale.
Pack up a couple of tents, build a crackling fire, cook food, and sleep under the star-lit sky. You could even pack a telescope for star-gazing.
If your children are really young, then engaging in social work could be a great way to teach them about responsibility and sharing. You could also take a trip to the soup kitchen.
Besides, there is no age-limit for it either! The makeover could be followed by a movie, or by lunch/dinner; after all you would be eager to go flaunt your new look once you have got it, won't you?
Life gets a little too hard on us sometimes, and we tend to lose touch with ourselves and our family even though we don't mean to! Family weekends are the best way to re-establish the connect. There are so many options in front of you, you are now looking forward to the coming weekend! Have a great weekend!
