7 Things To Do On A Weekend-At-Home With Kids

Staying home on the weekend can be a great way to save money and spend quality time with your kids. But, how do you keep them occupied without spending too much energy or going over budget? Here are 7 things to do on a weekend at home with your kids that will provide hours of fun and memories.

1. Crafts
Crafting is a great way for children of all ages to use their imaginations, express themselves and engage in activities that don’t involve screens. Make the most out of common household items such as cardboard boxes, paper towel rolls, etc., to create unique crafts. From making puppets out of paper plates to creating homemade instruments from recycled materials, there are so many possibilities!

2. Baking & Cooking
Baking is a great way to entertain your kids on the weekend while incorporating some science lessons. Baking involves measuring, mixing and time management – all skills that can be practiced in an entertaining way by making something sweet. Plus, you have a delicious treat when it’s finished. You can also try baked chicken wings which is also a great way to teach kids about nutrition. Let them help you make healthy meals for the whole family.

3. Games & Puzzles
Challenge your kids to complete a puzzle or play board games with them for hours of fun. Board games are great for teaching children strategy and problem-solving skills as well as social interactions such as taking turns, playing fair, and winning/losing gracefully. And puzzles help introduce basic geometry and math concepts in a hands-on way.

4. Create A Movie Night
Gather up the family and host your own movie night! Whether you watch a classic movie or something brand new, make sure to provide snacks, comfortable seating, and other fun activities around it. This is also a great way to spend time together as a family while teaching kids about different genres of movies.

5. Gardening
Spending time in the garden can teach children life skills such as an appreciation for nature, patience, and empathy toward plants and animals. From planting vegetables to nurturing flowers and herbs, there are so many ways that kids can get involved with gardening. Plus, there’s nothing like harvesting the fruits (or vegetables!) of their labor!

6. Outdoor Activities
From playing tag and hide-and-seek to badminton and soccer, there are many outdoor activities that you can do with your kids. Taking the time to play together gives you a chance to bond while also teaching them physical and social skills.

7. Photo Scavenger Hunt
Photography is a great activity for children of all ages, as it encourages the use of their imagination and creativity. A photo scavenger hunt takes this one step further by challenging kids to find items in their surroundings and capture them through photographs. You can even make it into a competition where the best photos win prizes!

In A Nutshell
These 7 things to do on a weekend at home with your kids will provide hours of entertainment while also creating lasting memories – all without breaking the bank!
