It’s not much fun to be stuck at home with the kids on the weekend. Particularly if the rain is pouring and they can’t get out into the yard or go visit their friends. That’s why you might want to think about planning some great activities with the kids this weekend. Here are some of the possibilities that we recommend you explore.
Visit An Aquarium
The aquarium is a great place to take the kids and New York has a great one. In fact, the NY Aquarium is home of the playquarium which allows kids to explore their individual creativity and imagination in lots of different ways. For instance, they can dive into a kelp forest or transform into a shark. As for the aquarium itself, there’s hundreds of different sea creatures to spot including multiple species of sharks. This one is not to be missed if you’re wandering around the city looking for something to do.
Check Out The Monster Trucks
If you want an activity that’s going to be a little more exciting and exhilarating, then we recommend exploring something like a monster truck rally. One of the most popular examples of this is Monster Jam which has become an international sensation. As well as touring around the world, it’s available in every state throughout the year. You can get Monster Jam tickets online and the best part is that you don’t need to worry about getting great seats. It doesn’t matter where you are, you’ll always be able to see the massive trucks in action. Kids are going to love this one, we guarantee it.
Take A Trip To A Theme Park
If you have a couple of little adrenaline junkies, why not plan a weekend trip to a theme park? From Six Flags to Disney and Universal, there are countless major theme parks around worth visiting and quite a few smaller ones too. If you are planning on taking a trip to a theme park make sure that you research the rides and activities beforehand. It’s important to make sure that they have options for your little one.
Catch A Show
If you have older kids, you might want to think about taking them to see their first stage show at the weekend. There’s lots of stage shows that kids might love from Wicked to The Lion King or even Harry Potter And The Cursed Child. If you are interested in this last choice, then we recommend that you do think about booking tickets early. It’s still incredibly popular. It’s also important to note that this show is split into two. You’ll need to make sure that you book tickets for both parts to get the full story. The special effects are absolutely incredible.
If you are looking to go away somewhere and get closer to nature then camping could be a great choice for you. If you are worried that you and your family spend too much time with your heads buried in technology, turn it off and get out of the house. You don’t have to venture far for a camping trip, you can even set up in your own backyard. However, if you did want to find and explore some of the amazing campsites dotted around then go for it. Make sure you have everything planned and packed for your camping trip. You should also be sure to book any accommodation that you need while you are away. It is better to pre book your slot rather than turning up and being disappointed should they be full.
Attend A Sports Game
You might be a sports orientated family. If so, then what better way to spend the weekend than at a sports game. You could go and support your local home team or attend a much bigger game with some national teams. If you are taking the children, make sure that they are aware of the dangers attending these games. Be sure to tell them to stay with you at all times and not wander off. Get those banners and scarves out and cheer on your team. Attending sports games as a family can really bring you closer together and is a great bonding activity.
We hope this helps you see that there are countless fun activities that you can explore with the kids this weekend. It’s just a case of finding something that they are going to enjoy and that is going to hold their interest. This is a great way to reconnect and get some real quality time with your kids too.
