If you follow me on twitter then you will already know all about having the best value for money on all family days out as a family. The high cost of taking care of the children during the school breaks is horrific. For three young children it actually costs up to 110 a day just to have them in childcare (which is before the government’s scheme). So this means that the cost goes up by almost a third, which leaves a pretty penny in our pocket.
I agree that every now and then, it is refreshing to take children on a trip that will increase the adrenaline rush in their bodies, such as skydiving, or to an adventurous sport such as flying a spitfire by making a booking through websites such as spitfires.com. That, however, is not always the case. You sometimes have to stick to your budget even while having fun.
But how can we make sure that these fantastic family days out are actually affordable and worth it? There are some great ways to make sure that the money we spend on them is a great investment in our children’s future. For instance there are loads of different kinds of activities that can be organised with our children that get them really active and involved which means that they learn new social skills that will come in useful when they are older. Some activities that are great for this are things like going to the local park or even enjoying a day out to the sea.
To make the most out of the great outdoors, we should look at the different family days out that we could plan. There are lots of great adventures to choose from. We can go horse riding, hiking, camping, zip lining, and sailing. It’s important that we choose something that our kids enjoy as it’s going to help them learn new skills too. For instance, if one of them likes to camp then maybe we should go and do some camping in a local park. This will give them a chance to learn a lot more about nature and how to protect it from the damaging rays of the sun as well as learning how to cook a good meal.
Another activity that we can plan is a day out to a theme park. Lots of people go on these family days out to theme parks where they go on rides and have fun together. A good idea would be to look into a few websites like Theme Park Today and then choose one that you think your kids are going to enjoy the most. You could also sign up for a few different attractions so that your kids get to try them all out over the summer.
School holidays are another great time to go on an adventure tour. We can always book a day trip to a theme parks or other adventure destinations. The best thing about these tours is that they are cheaper than buying tickets for an all inclusive holiday. They are also much more flexible in terms of the number of days you can take them on. We can often find cheaper all inclusive holidays during school holidays as opposed to going on a holiday when there is lots of visiting tourist attractions.
When we look at what we can do to make the most out of our family days out, we realize that we can use lots of resources to get the most out of our family day trips and adventures. We can encourage more physical activity and we can spend more time learning about new things while we are exploring new places. Adventure tours are great because they provide something different for every family member. Whether you want to explore new places, explore nature, or engage in adventure activities, there are lots of options out there to make your family days out more fun.
