Thursday, March 22, 2018


With busy lifestyles and hectic schedules for both adults and children, it can sometimes be difficult to get everyone together for some quality bonding time. Whether your family is small or large, spending time together as a unit is important for growth, development and building relationships. A great way to get everyone together is spending the day doing activities that everyone loves. This might be a ball game in the park or getting involved in arts and crafts to create a masterpiece
together. There is a host of activities and fun ideas that can get everyone involved plus plenty of options from spring through to winter.

Check out some of the best ways to make fun memories with the whole family.

Outdoor games and activities

Getting out into the fresh air has tons of benefits for both body and mind. Kids love exploring, so making activities fun and adventurous is great for both kids and adults alike. Popular ideas include hide and seek and ball games, plus for older children, you can get them involved in treasure hunts or orienteering to work both body and mind into solving puzzles and clues.

Team games

If the only games you participate in include a wager on Unibet for your favorite sports team, then why not try something a little different and get the older family members involved in a family team game? This doesn’t have to be overly competitive but of course, if you want a little healthy rivalry between everyone, then that’s great for building relationships and tolerance in a competitive environment. Why not try a game of basketball together or grab a bat and ball and head to your nearest park for some friendly ball games. The list is endless but could result in some fun times and tons of laughter.


Grabbing the bikes and heading out for a ride is a great way for the whole family to let off some steam. Whether this is in the local area or you travel a little further afield to enjoy the country’s beautiful landscapes, riding with everyone offers an adventurous way to have fun. You could even stop for a picnic and enjoy the sights on your day out.

Board games

With the rise in digital gaming, those old family board games have normally be stored in a cupboard or have been thrown in the trash. Why not revive this traditional family fun and get everyone around the table for some healthy competition. Great games
for families with older kids include Trivial Pursuit, which is a humorous way to test knowledge of the world and certainly gives everyone some laughs.

There are heaps of activities to get everyone interacting and enjoying each other’s company. Some ideas are great for families with smaller tots while others are suited to older children. Get everyone together and chat about what you’d like to do as a family, as that way everyone can choose something they love and you can all enjoy an exciting day out together.
