While we are stuck at home due to the coronavirus and left with not much to do, finding activities will be a good way to try and pass the time while also connecting with your family. Luckily, as the weather has started to warm, identifying activities for the whole family is becoming much easier to accomplish. Here are a few of the easiest and simplest activities that the whole family can get involved in.

Recreational Activities

If you have young kids, chances are they are full of energy and in need of activity. Getting them active outdoors will be good not only for them but for the parents, too. Easy outdoor activities can include almost any sport. For example, if you have a soccer ball and maybe some cones or a shed, the opportunities for how long your kids could be out there playing soccer are endless. The same can be said for football, baseball, or frisbee. If they run around and play catch with you, they’ll easily wear off some energy and have a good time doing it. However, should it be a bit cooler in the evening, avoid letting them use a shaved bat when they’re playing baseball. If it’s cooler than 65 degrees outside, a shaved bat won’t work as well. This is especially true if the bat older or if your kids are a little more serious about baseball: the last thing you want is to cause potential injury to the bat or your kids.

However, activities for the whole family don’t end with playing sports in the backyard. There are endless activities that you and your family can do outdoors. In 2018, 3.75 million people participated in sailing. Should your family have a boat or the financial ability to invest in one, sailing is a perfect activity that the whole family can get involved in. Teach your kids the importance of safety and maybe even take up some fishing classes to practice on your boat. You might just instill a lifelong joy of sailing in your children.

Board and Card Games

Another great way families used to more commonly connect with one another was through board and card games. Since everything is going digital, sitting down with a deck of cards happens a lot less frequently than it used to for families. However, bringing this back can be a fun way for the whole family to get involved. For some, teaching your kids card games can also be a way of passing down family traditions. If you played euchre with your parent, it can be nostalgic and bittersweet to pass these skills down to your children, too.

And who doesn’t love a good board game? Teach your kids some real-life skills by playing Monopoly or strengthen their vocabulary by playing scrabble. There are a lot of different ways you can incorporate board or card games into your family time. Find something that’s fun for your family and run with it!

Home Care

Activites for the whole family can be for a purpose other than getting energy out. For example, if your home needs some attention, it may be worthwhile to have the kids paint the walls while you handle the more intricate parts of a home renovation. This is especially important if you plan to sell your home in the future. An estimated 34% of recent home buyers don’t want to deal with issues like electricity or plumbing. So even if you’re not looking to sell anytime soon, making sure your house is fully functional and looks nice enough for you to enjoy can be a good activity for the whole family to partake in. Plus, allowing the kids the freedom to make decisions over their room or even some of the other rooms in the house will be something they enjoy.

However you choose to get the whole family together, doing something as a team will be beneficial. These are a few simple, relatively easy, and fun ways to spend some quality time while doing activities for the whole family.
