The time we spend with our family is precious and fleeting. While it may feel like your little cherubs will remain small and snuggly forever, blink and before you know it they’re young adults that no longer want anything to do with mum and dad. If for no other reason than this alone, we need to make the most of every moment we spend as a family (even if the kids do have a habit of driving you up the wall!). If you are looking for fun experiences to do with the family this Autumn then check out this list.
If you want to make the most of ‘family time’ and create memories that will last a lifetime, here are ten fun experiences that every family should share together at least once in their lifetime.
Every family should get up at the crack of dawn and catch a sunrise together. There’s something about a sunrise that is so calming and restorative and will create a memory that is near impossible to forget.
There’s nothing like the great outdoors to bring a family together. If you have never been camping before, make it your mission to add it to your family holiday schedule asap.
Few things can be as energizing as an animal encounter—getting up close and personal with a wild creature (like you can do at this wildlife park Melbourne) can be both thrilling and exhilarating.
Get the family together and explore ancient ruins. Giving your kids a fist-hand experience of what life was once like can give them a dose of history and a new perspective on the privileges we get to enjoy in our lives today.
Sailing is a great way for the entire family to get together and learn something new. We all know there’s nothing like learning a new skill, but even more so when it’s out on the water!
Float down a river on an inflatable tube and enjoy the relaxing sensation of just being. It’s important to take time out every now and then to let our minds wander, so get floating!
Heading down a mine is one of the most exhilarating experiences you can have as a family. Not only will it get your heart pumping, but there’s also something quite calming about being underground and out of the way from all civilization for a few hours.
A road trip is the perfect opportunity to escape the pressures of daily life and spend some quality time with family, and you’ll get to stop off at some amazing places along the way! It doesn’t have to be a long journey; sometimes just a short trip can be just as good.
Nothing beats the feeling of accomplishment you get when you arrive at a summit, and what better way to make that achievement than with your nearest and dearest by your side.
Art is an activity that can be done by anyone and everyone, regardless of age or ability. It’s a great opportunity to throw out the rule book and let your creative spark run wild!
