Make the Most of Your Holiday Getaway with These Fun Family Activities

August 20, 2017, Author: Beyond Boundaries Travel

In today’s fast-paced world, it can be difficult to find time to bond with your family. Nevertheless, it’s an important factor to consider to keep your family together. In fact, several studies discovered that family time forms strong emotional bonds, improves social development and enhances kids’ self-esteem. After you book one of those lake cabin rentals, prepare these activities for a fun-filled holiday getaway.

Geocache Treasure Hunt

This is a fun way to teach your kids the importance of giving instead of just receiving. Geocaching is a real-life outdoor treasure hunt where the aim is to look for caches or containers that are full of objects other people hid. Prepare your family by visiting the Geocaching website to look for cache locations near your holiday destination.

You and the rest of your family will then have to use the GPS trackers on your mobiles to locate the treasures. These are usually stored under a bench, in the hollow of a tree or behind rocks. These caches carry logbooks and trinkets, so the finders can write down the date they found the object and their country of origin.

They can take the trinket with them, but they will have to put something else in its place. Meanwhile, they will have to place the logbook back for the next finders.

From Field to the Fork

The best way to teach your kids about humility and the significance of food is by stepping into someone else’s shoes. They will appreciate baking and eating that apple pie with you if they picked it from the field themselves. Take your family on a pick-your-own farm that provides seasonal fruits, including blueberries, strawberries, apples and pumpkin.

Bonding during family holidays doesn’t have to be cliché and boring. Incorporate the above activities to grow stronger as a family and enjoy a holiday that you will never forget.
