Fun Ways To Spend A Day With Your Family

Fun Ways To Spend A Day With Your Family

 

There’s nothing more important than quality time with family. With family day heading our way, it’s the perfect day to plan an activity or outing with your loved ones! Below we’ve listed some fun and creative ways for you to spend some well-needed time with your family!

Take The Family Out For Skating

Some good old-fashioned skating is always a fun activity for the whole family! Whether you are a complete beginner at skating or are used to zipping around a lake or arena with ease, skating is a great activity that only gets your family out of the house but also helps promote healthy, physical activity. Many skating arenas offer skates for rental, so you don’t have to worry about purchasing them if you do not own them and lots of arenas love to bump loud family friendly music, making the experience of skating with your family a fun one! 

Plan A Movie Marathon

While watching movies is a common activity that many families may already take part in, why not take your movie marathon to the next level? Have each member of your family pick their favourite movie and binge watch them all together, while taking a vote at the end on who’s movie was the best of the day! Be sure to have lots of popcorn and other treats available to snack on, and you’ve got yourself a movie marathon!

Set Up A Paint & Sip

If you have a family that loves to be creative, this idea is the one for you. Head over to your local dollar store and pick up paint canvas’, paints and paintbrushes. Set up a punchbowl or drink dispenser with a fruity mocktail and set out some cheese, crackers and fruits. Both you and your family can decide on an image or a scene to paint, or you all can have each family member paint one another. By the end, you’ll have a stack of creative art pieces that you can hang around the home and share with one another! 

Go For A Day Trip

Want to extend family day into family weekend? Pack your bags and drive over to a nearby city and make a day trip out of it! You can visit local parks, malls, restaurants and other attractions in the city, exploring new sightings together! After a long day, check into a hotel and sleep off the day before you make the road trip back home! If you are staying in the Sudbury region, Quality Inn Sudbury offers family friendly accommodations that are comfortable, safe and accessible for your next stay in Sudbury.

We hope these ideas will help you plan an enjoyable and fun Family Day!
