Why not head to your local vintage stores as a family? Set the kids a clear spending limit before you arrive, as children can get incredibly excited in these stores as they find various unique treasures they want to take home. A good quality vintage store is a great place to find things you might want in your home, so you can also scout out some amazing finds whilst the kids are entertained.
At this time of year, as birds nest, flowers start to bloom and leaf buds emerge, heading to the woods is a great way to make the most of fair weather over the weekend. Take along a picnic if the forecast is really good, and enjoy a mindful walk at a relaxed pace as you all take turns to spot the changes happening in nature.
Borrow A Dog
There are plenty of dog-walking apps and websites out there. If you don’t own a dog as a family, why not borrow one for the afternoon and take it for a walk? You may want to meet the dog without your kids there first, to ensure it is a kid-friendly dog that can handle their excitement. The presence of a dog can turn even the most well-known walking routes into a fantastically exciting hike for your kids, so use it as a way to encourage them outside.
