The summer holidays are here, and it can be difficult to find things to do for the entire six weeks that all the family will enjoy.
Even if you break it up with a holiday somewhere, you’ll still be faced with endless cries of ‘I’m bored!’ and the need to get out of the house.
Rather than focusing on just child-friendly activities, why not try activities that are suitable for the whole family so that parents can have some fun too. Here are some great suggestions for fun summer activities for families.
The new ways to watch films
Inevitably, you’ll be faced with some rainy days, and when the TV becomes too much, or you feel like you just need to escape for a few hours, there’s always the cinema.
Cinema has come a long way in recent years with films being a much more immersive experience.
You can choose from 3D, IMAX, superscreen and even incredible 4DX as a more exciting way to watch a film and make it a more shared experience.
On dry days, you can take a look at outdoor cinema screenings near you that are a great excuse to take a picnic and some blankets and enjoy classic movies outside.
Some of the most fun family activities are the ones that pit you against each other - and go-karting is one of them!
While the kids are still too young to drive, go-karting is a great experience to get them behind the wheel, and it can be fun to race together as a family and enjoy the adrenaline rush.
GoKart tracks often have special deals on during the summer to make it a more affordable activity for the whole family to enjoy. If you’re stuck for kids birthday party ideas too, this is one that goes down well with kids of all ages.
This is another great suggestion for something that the whole family can enjoy, especially as the kids get older and can go on all of the rides.
There are always great vouchers around now for 241 entry so that the cost can be quite minimal, and if you’re armed with the right theme park survival tips, you can make sure you have a great day out together.
If you’re not going on holiday this year, this is a fun way to enjoy your staycation and add some excitement to the summer holidays.
Invest in a paddling pool
Paddling pools are great for both kids and adults, and they have caused a bit of a stir after supermarkets begun slashing their paddling pool prices.
A paddling pool is a great thing to invest in for the summer and can be brought out whenever the temperatures begin to go up for a fun activity that’s close to home and won’t break the bank.
Plotting out an entire summer holiday full of activities can be difficult, and costly, but there are plenty of other great suggestions for keeping the kids occupied during the summer, that you might want to look at.
Here’s hoping for a great summer filled with good weather and fun!
