7 Fun Things to Do as a Family

Are you running out of ways to entertain your children? Do you want to create wonderful memories as a family? If so, you’re in luck, because below are seven fun things you can do together that will entertain Mom, Dad and the kids.
  1. Go on a Hike
Find a family-friendly trail so everyone can enjoy a hike in the great outdoors. It’s a fantastic way to feel closer to nature, enjoy a little exercise and to spot a variety of wildlife on your travels. Mom and Dad could even write a checklist for items a child needs to discover, such as an acorn, squirrel or waterfall.
  1. Origami
Origami is more than a fun craft to enjoy as a family. It is a unique skill that allows a creator to show off their talent and creativity. From beautiful flowers to stunning birds, there’s no limit to what you can create with paper with a little practice. It’s an entertaining and effective way for adults and children to embrace their creative side, whilst laughing at Dad’s poor first attempt.
  1. Bake
Baking cookies, cakes or pastries will allow the family to work together as a team to create delicious treats. Kids will love to get their hands dirty in the kitchen, and it’s a great way to teach your little ones a life-long skill. What’s more, you can all sit down at the table to enjoy a yummy treat that’s fresh out the oven.
  1. Learn an Instrument
Teach your child that they are never too old to develop a new talent and take a guitar, piano or violin lesson with your son or daughter. The family can learn an instrument together, so they help each other overcome any hurdles whilst boosting their confidence. Also, if you have already mastered an instrument, you could pass on your knowledge to your children so they will follow in your footsteps.
  1. Go Swimming
Every child loves to splash in the pool, whatever the weather. Grab your swimming costumes and enjoy a fun day out, which will help your children learn a life-saving skill whilst creating fun memories together. You’ll also feel a sense of pride when they finally master the breaststroke or jump off a diving board in style.
  1. Visit a Museum
Many museums offer free admission days for the whole family to learn about a new topic. Your little ones will have fun exploring the different exhibitions, and you may even discover some facts you didn’t know, too. There are bound to be a variety of museums to choose from that will allow everyone to learn about local, national or art history.
  1. Play a Board Game
Enjoy hours of endless fun by playing family board games with the kids. Allow your children to pick a game each to play, such as Scrabble, Monopoly or Cluedo. It’s a great opportunity to laugh, learn and enjoy a little healthy competition.

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most
