If you are a typical family, you are BUSY! But here are some fun and inexpensive ways to make the most of your weekends with the kids.

  • A picnic at a nearby park
  • An afternoon at the local library
  • An hour in the back yard discovering the different kinds of plants, rocks, and insects
  • A trip to a nearby, yet unfamiliar, neighborhood or town
  • A visit to an ethnic grocery store to try unfamiliar food
  • Travel to a nearby farm to discover how food is grown
  • An afternoon at a museum

Be creative in planning trips, and let every family member plan at least one.

Follow up with mealtime conversations about the places visited and brainstorming future day-trips. These will be days your children will remember for a long time!
