Even if you don’t have a family trip planned, you can still have lots of fun at home this weekend. Here are 20 fun family activities you can do inside and outside of the house.
Prepare a traditional picnic lunch like sandwiches, fruit, and potato chips. Load everything into a basket and bring it to your picnic destination, whether it’s a blanket on the lawn or a patio table. Your family will get fresh air and a dose of vitamin D!
This outdoor family activity gets everyone moving! You’ll need four players and a large rubber ball. Draw a 12 x 12 foot square on your driveway. Divide into four squares—A, B, C, and D—and have one player stand in each square. The player in A starts by bouncing the ball in their square, then batting it with open hands into another square. That player must hit the ball into another square. When one player misses or hits the ball out of bounds, they move to D, the players behind them advance, and you begin again.
