Outdoor Fun With The Kids

It’s getting to the time of the year when we can spend more time outdoors with our children. After all, the last few months we have been locked inside doing activities such as crafting and cooking. And while it can be educational and fun for kids, it can leave you longing for a bit of outdoor fun. Thankfully, now is the time where we can get some sun while having some fun. However, a lot of dads get stuck on what to do with their children. Therefore, here are some outdoor activities that your kids, and you, will love!

Go for a day out cycling with the kids

Now is the time to dust off those bikes as it’s a perfect time to do some cycling with the kids. After all, you can go out and enjoy the sun while taking in the local views. And biking is definitely something the whole family can get involved in. You can all get on your bikes and then follow a planned route. You can even stop for some lunch half-way at a park which is a great way to enjoy the outdoors with your kids. And a bike ride is a great chance for you to bond with your kid. After all, you can talk while you are biking around the local area. And having something you both enjoy doing will ensure you get plenty of quality time together. Moreover, cycling is an active sport that will help you all to stay fit. Therefore, there is a ton of benefits for your health too!

Take the kids on a hiking adventure

You can also enjoy the outdoors while having a great family day out by going hiking. After all, it can be a fun day out for the whole family. You get to enjoy amazing views while getting fit at the same time. And it’s the perfect way to enjoy the sunshine with your family. Of course, if you are going hiking, you need to make sure the kids have all the kit they require including a good pair of hiking boots. In fact, you can look online on websites like the FamilyFuntures site to ensure you get everything you need for the outdoor activities. And the kids are bound to love hiking so it can become a hobby you all enjoy doing together. To finish off the day with a bang, you might want to camp overnight. After all, you can all have fun around the campfire telling stories and singing songs. And the kids will love spending the night in their own tent!

Spend some time gardening in the yard

You don’t have to even leave your property to have some outdoor fun. You can head outside in the garden for a fun time doing some gardening with the kids. You might be surprised how much the kids actually enjoy digging and watering the plants. And if you set tasks such as planting certain flowers or vegetables, it can be a fun experience for all. In fact, the kids will love watching the fruit and veg growing over time. And then it can ensure they are more keen to eat them when they are fully grown!

And remember heading out to the park can be a fun activity for the whole family during the summer months!

Fall Fun at Caesar Creek!

This past weekend, we took a little drive to Xenia, OH to a wonderful place called Caesar Creek for some pumpkin painting for the kids (and wine for the adults!).  We didn’t stay too long as it was a little chilly, but the kids had a blast playing outside and decorating their pumpkins.  Here are a few pictures from our adventure!
