Have the school holidays rolled around and you find yourself stuck with a bunch of bored kids? Get out and explore with the whole family, with our fun activity suggestions below!
Hot Day? Try a Water Park.
Instead of going to your local pool, try travelling to a water park that you and the kids can explore instead. Water parks are great because they offer a range of attractions outside of alternative lane swimming, including water slides, wave pools, and river tubing.
Plus, it’s also good exercise climbing up those staircases before you get to slide all the way down! Get out and cool down today – Here is a collection of the best 30 water parks in the USA.
Get a Hole in One.
Looking for something a little more dryer? Why not have a crack at mini golf – it’s like golf, but without the on a smaller scale! It’s certainly a game that can be played by the whole family and brings a level of friendly competitiveness into the mix.
Mini golf holes often present with a range of obstacles to overcome, so a combination of skill and luck makes it the perfect family outing. There are a range of themed mini golf courses too, so find one that you know your kids will enjoy.
Mini golf also offers a range of benefits for children, such as improving hand-eye coordination, balance and decision-making skills.
Booking a session at a trampoline park is a bouncing good time for all ages. With their popularity growing, as well as their locations across America, trampoline parks have a range of activities to keep you occupied.
Their attractions range form freestyling it on large, interconnected trampoline courts, to trampoline dodgeball and obstacle courses. Skyzone is one of the largest operators of trampoline parks, with over 200 locations across the nation.
Of course, you can always look at buying a trampoline for your family, allowing you to go bouncing at anytime in your own backyard. This is an ideal solution if your kids got a taste of trampolining visiting a trampoline park, as it let’s them continue to fun at home.
Pew Pew. Laser Tag.
Laser tag is a great activity for a group of people to get involved, such as a family! Face off in the arena as a team or try to tag each other while avoiding being tagged yourself.
It’s also a safe activity because the infrared rays emitted from laser taggers are low frequency and low energy. This means they can’t cause damages, even if pointed into someone’s eyes. The taggers have also been been tested and regulated for safety, even for kids.
As predominantly an indoor activity, going to laser tag can be the perfect solution on those cold and rainy days when outside play isn’t an option.
Rolling in the Fun.
Get your skates on with the family and head to a purpose-built rolling skating rink. Most venues have skate lessons which are perfect for younger children who have never skated before.
Skating rinks offer a wide range of activities outside of simply going around in circles. These include games such as Limbo or Roller Dancing, keeping things interesting after the initial thrill of skating wears thin.
Roller skating is also an excellent form of exercise, working both the legs and arms, while still be easy on the joints.
