Blast From the Past: Top 5 Ideas For Retro Family Fun - Page 2
4) Arts, Crafts and More– Many parents already facilitate their children’s artistic pursuits, which is great. Why not take it one step further and teach your kids the beauty and value of art in a larger setting? A trip to the local art gallery for a visiting show can be a great way of fostering the inner Da Vinci that exists in many kids. Similarly, when was the last time that that the family went to the local museum? Taking the children to either one of these establishments will likely open up discussion and foster ideas that would likely not occur through playing video games.
5) Day Trips – It’s very likely that your hometown has a number of sites and attractions that you have not been to in many years. How many of us pass the “tourist section” downtown, without the thought that perhaps a visit to that particular destination might be of interest? Like most of us, we probably haven’t set foot in the locales that make our particular city a draw in many years. That being the case, why not make an event of it and plan a day trip with the kids. Seeing the sites can be an entertaining and enlightening experience for the whole family.
So as you see, there are a number of options for parents looking for family-friendly entertainment that go beyond the standard digital and technology-based options. Turn off, tune out and get back to basics – you just might be surprised.
