7 Fun Family Activities to Keep Your Family Busy at Home


Staying home instead of going out may seem daunting when you want to keep your little ones entertained. The good news is that we don’t always have to leave our homes in order to have a little bit of fun.

There are various ways to keep ourselves busy and our kids entertained by getting up to something fun at home. It may feel like a daunting task when we try to plan fun weekends, but in reality, it really shouldn’t be if you can just get a little creative. Here, we have listed some of the things we can do for fun in the comfort of our homes.

Arrange a Treasure Hunt

We don’t know any kids that don’t like treasure hunts, do you? It can be as simple as planting a few toys or pockets of treats across your garden for your kids to track down. This can be accompanied by a drawn-out map to guide your kids to where they need to dig.

(To create an interesting-looking map, you can tear the paper around the edges and pre-soak the paper in some coffee, which will make the map appear from a different era).

Get Cooking or Baking

This one is perfect if the weather does not permit outdoor activities! Kids love making cookies or pizza because who doesn’t like the feel of dough when you’re a youngster? The best part of the baking or cooking process is enjoying what you’ve made when it is finished.

Plan a Picnic

When the weather is nice, there’s nothing quite like having a picnic with your family. It’s as simple as preparing some traditional picnic foods like sandwiches, fruit, and other snacks, laying out a blanket, or setting up on a patio table. As a bonus, you and your family will get a good dose of vitamin D.

For this one, you will have to download a star app (which is very easy to do), and there are plenty of free ones out there. Be sure to choose a spot in your yard that allows a great view of the great abyss. If you’re lucky, the fresh air before bed may even get the little ones to sleep faster.

Tasting Test

For this one, you may have to buy some special ingredients, but it’ll be worth it for sure! Pick a place on a world map, such as Brazil or Greece, and do some research about the country with your kids. To end it off, you can make a signature dish from this country, for example, Brazilian coxinhas (chicken croquettes) or Moussaka from Greece.

Get Crafty
