Kids grow up so quickly; one minute they are toddlers hanging on to your every word, and before you know it they are full grown teens that can’t help but to slam the door every chance they get.
That is why I try to cherish the time I have with my child as much as possible while she is still young, because before you know it, she’ll be too embarrassed to even been seen with you in public, let alone let you give her a small peck on the cheek.
Here are a few ideas on things you can to bond with your young one and really appreciate the little moments in life.
If your child loves animals like mine, then a day at the zoo or at a pony trekking centre will make for a wonderful memory. It’s really important to dress warm and comfortable for this, especially if it is as cold as it is now, because you don’t want to risk them coming down with the winter flu that has been going around. You can get things like windbreakers and kids boots from equestrian clearance or your local sports wear retailer to name a few.
If your kids are old enough to enjoy nature and roasting marshmallows over a campfire and also not be in risk of any harm, then take them on an overnight camping trip. This is a really great bonding experience for the whole family and being able to pitch a tent is also immensely rewarding for everyone, both young and old. If you check around your local area for camp sites, you might end up enjoying this little getaway right in your own back yard.
Bike rides will never get old – in fact, it’s even quite trendy in some countries. You can find loads of bike maps nearby here, which you and your young ones can attempt on a Sunday, instead of spending it inside just watching the telly. Pack a picnic lunch and make it a day soon – you won’t be sorry.
