Being a work at home, you always find yourself busy with your work and fail to get enough time to spend with your family. To make up for that, you may organize some out of town trips or a weekend for family bonding. To make these moments enjoyable and exiting, you need to come up with some outdoor games that will be enjoyable to every member in your family. Besides, as the saying goes, “work without play makes jack a dull boy,” but I will say that work without play makes you a dull mom. Below are some outdoor activities that a work at home mom can enjoy:
All weather corn toss game
If you can be able to aim and toss a corn bag to at least 10 feet away, then you are a good player. One good thing about this game is that even your kids can join in and it is one of the most exiting family games. It is a game that you can enjoy everywhere. Whether it is from the park, driveway, or even at the back yard, you can have fun with every member of the family. If you decide to go camping with your family, as you pack your backpacking tent, remember to pack a corn bag for this particular activity.
Backyard mini-golf tournament
If your husband loves to play golf with friends during the weekend, why don’t you bring the tournament to your house and allow your kids go against their daddy? This can be a lot of fun and it is also a great way to train your kids how to play golf. In fact, you can even invite the neighbors to make it more fun. If you do not feel like playing golf, you can take that chance to take photos to make the day even more memorable. To take clear and unique photos, you need to get the best trail camera and your family will always feel happy whenever they look at the pictures.
Here, you need to divide the group into two, and if your family members are less, you can invite neighbors. Each player will have a bubble station and wand; the teams will then line-up shoulder to shoulder. The first individual in the line will blow the bubble and then pass it to the next person using the wand until it reaches the last person in the line. The first team to successfully pass the bubble to the last person wins the game. When the bubble is popped before it reaches the end, the one who popped it will blow it again for the solution. Your kids will surely enjoy the game.
This is a game that you can play with other families. The mothers or fathers will line up on one side of the park blind-folded and the kids will be on the other side calling out their names. Blind folded moms or dads will find their kids following their sounds and the first parent to reach his/her child wins.
It is definitely fun to spend time with your family playing fun games. Since you spend time working, you may find yourself losing bonds with your kids but with these games your bond and relationship will be more stronger than ever, which is of course ever parent’s desire.
