When you have the chance to bond with your kids at home, you need to make the most of it. As you head back to work, you won’t have time to play with them anymore. Don’t allow your job to keep you busy even during the weekends. As soon as the last day of the work week is over, you need to forget work and focus on your kids. There are fun activities you can do at home to enjoy the weekends.
Try something unexpected
On a weekend night, you can do something with your kids even if it ends late. You are not doing anything the next day anyway, so it is okay. You can try face painting since it is fun, and it allows your kids to be creative. You can also have game nights where you can divide your family into groups. They will enjoy these games as much as you do.
Cook something new
On a weekday, you cook whatever it is that you are familiar with because you can do it off the top of your head. You don’t need to look at cooking videos or read recipes online. However, on a weekend when you have a lot of time on your hands, you can try something new. Find a pastry that is quite difficult to bake or a dish that you only eat in restaurants. Whether you succeed or not, you can at least have fun doing it with your kids.
Start a vlog
Several people have video logs these days, and they document almost anything that is happening in their lives. You can do the same too if you have time with your kids during a weekend. You can show other people what you are doing as a family and inspire them. Besides, it is a good idea to try something that usually only young people do.
If you have teenagers, they will appreciate it if you go out shopping with them. They might ask you to buy something they always wanted, and since you have enough time, you can shop together until you drop.
Play video games
You keep getting angry with your kids for always playing video games. It is now your chance to understand why they love video games by playing with them. They will love teaching you how to play the games too. Be open-minded to understanding their interests so that you won’t get angry with them the next time.
If you still have young kids, whirlpools baths give you the opportunity to bathe together. You can do the same with your partner. There are whirlpool baths that can accommodate several people at once. You can use the bath to relax and also spend time with the people you love.
Your kids are growing up quickly, and you can’t turn back time. Now that you still have the opportunity to bond with them, you need to maximise the chance.
