    3 Fun Activities to Plan for When the Pandemic Passes

    We’ve been stuck in the coronavirus and Covid-19 pandemic for around a year now. 12 months ago, nobody could have anticipated the huge changes that would occur in our lives as the direct result of a potentially fatal disease spreading rapidly around the world.

    4 Fun Activities to Try with Your Dad

    “For thousands of years, father and son have stretched wistful hands across the canyon of time.” -Alan Valentine A man’s thought process is not as of a woman. They do things differently and love differently. They don’t prefer to show affection directly but find ways to convey it. The most considerable evidence of this statement is the relationship between a father and a son. They may pretend to be careful on the outside, but somewhere inside, they feel and sense everything as a woman does. Where sons find it awkward and difficult to convey their feelings and concern for their daddies, it is important to let your dad know what…

    Five Reasons to Try Camping with Kids

    It can be tough choosing a vacation for you and your family. There’s what the adults want – relaxation, peace and quiet – versus what the kids want, which is often entertainment, activities and fun. Not only that but going on holiday together is the perfect way to bond as a family and create memories that you will all treasure forever. For your next great escape, why not consider camping? Okay, okay, so this might not initially sound like a fun idea.

    In the past, kids loved the idea of camping. Travelling to the great outdoors and playing with their friends and family in a field or in the woods was a lot of innocent fun. Sadly, that’s a pleasure that’s generally lost on children these days thanks to the entertainment they can get from something like a tablet device or a mobile phone. As unfortunate as it is, it doesn’t mean that you can’t get some fun out of a camping trip anymore. However, convincing your children is another deal entirely. They might want to stay at home where their friends are, they might prefer playing video games to going outdoors,…

    Your Child’s First Camping Trip: How To Make It Special

    It seems like there are two types of people in this world. The first are the adventurous type, who will go camping in any location, whatever the weather. There are others that won’t even go camping if the weather is nice. They prefer the comfort of a warm bed and a roof over their head. This might be a controversial opinion, but I believe the reason for this is due to how they perceived it as a child. When you take your child on camping trips, you want them to remember the experience as a great one. Ideally, they’ll be asking to go again and again in the future. Unfortunately,…

    Keeping Kids Safe on Your Family Camping Trip

    Camping has always been seen as something that families have to experience. At least, that’s how it used to be. Although people exaggerate how much technology has kept us indoors, it’s true that kids these days seem to be less inclined to go camping. Or is it the kids?

Think about it: the world isn’t much more dangerous that it was half a century ago. And yet the news seems to want us to think that our children…
