If you’re looking for inspiration for fun and inclusive activities the family can do together, you’ve come to the right place. Read on to be inspired for affordable family bonding activities.
HAVE A MOVIE NIGHT
Popcorn? Check. Pillow fort? Check. It’s the little touches that will make this a memorable experience. Pick a favourite movie from your childhood to share with your kids and get ready to revel in nostalgia.
BRING OUT THE GAMES
Whether you prefer card games, board games or console games like X-Box or Wii, there’s tons of family fun to be had with a good ol’ games night. You could go old school with some UNO or Monopoly, or try something new like King of Tokyo or Takenoko. Mouthpiece challenge games like Speak Out or Mumbo Jumbo have you try to read something off of a card with a mouthpiece in, and are guaranteed to have everyone doubled over with laughter.
BUILD A FAMILY GARDEN
A family garden is the gift that keeps on giving. Get everyone to pitch in with building and preparing a veggie garden, then work together to make it fruitful. This is a fantastic means to teach your kids about nature and responsibility. Tending and nurturing the garden will bring the family closer together – and you can all celebrate when you begin to reap the rewards and are able to eat your harvest! If you live in a water scarce area consider a water wise garden.
