Take a family vacation and make some amazing memories
There are so many options for family vacations, but no matter where you choose to travel make sure you unplug and take the time to connect with your children. Here are three ways you can work together and create some amazing family vacation memories.
Saying goodbye to the normal hectic routine of our busy lives is great but when you go on vacation play with your kids, no matter what age. Jump in and swim down the lazy river instead of reading your magazine and watching the kids. Put away all electronics and challenge your offspring to a miniature golf tournament, or see who can swing the highest at the playground. Remember what it was like to be a kid, put away the worries and have ice cream cones for dinner.
Create a summer memory project and work on it together with your kids. Scrapbooking is a great option and you can make it easy and post pictures from your trip, along with ticket stubs, and other collected items. If your summer vacation takes you to the beach you can keep a few of your favorite shells on display in a pretty Mason jar. Decide on something to collect, magnets, candles, tourist hats or shirts, Christmas ornaments and make it a new family tradition.
Hand over the Ropes
Pick a day when the kids can make all the shots. No matter what age your kids are, hand over the control for the daily activities and let them be the planners for activities, breakfast, lunch, dinner. Set a realistic budget and a few guidelines and then sit back and go along for the fun!
Summer vacation is such a great time to really connect with your children and have fun. I always find when we return from a family trip we just feel so much closer. When everyone gets to let loose and have fun you can really bond together as a family and have fun! Laughter and adventure are vacation goals for some amazing summer memories.
