With recent news of ongoing, and perhaps where you are even more extreme, restrictions in place, in many ways the start of 2021 doesn’t feel much different to last year. Which is why it’s essential that this year, we make a long list of things you can do outdoors as a family.
Getting outdoors, whether for minutes each day or planning something at the weekend is going to a the necessary release the family needs after spending another huge block of time indoors and in the home for most of the week. Here’s some ideas for getting out there!
Whether you’re camping in a field, or simply in your back garden (once the weather warms up a bit!), camping together is a great way to shake us out of our usual routines. Get a great family tent and head out with your loved ones in 2021. You can visit many spots, and you don’t have to own a campervan to have a great time. Camping as a family is a great way to tighten the bond and get close to each other.
To plan it best, list down all the things you will need to have the best event away from home.
When lockdowns are lifted, in some cases, you will still need to get a permit before camping in a preferred location. You also need to confirm that there is enough security to be safe throughout the entire period.
Get to the beach
Going to the beach is one of the best ways to get outdoors with family. Why? Well, quite simply the things you can do at the beach as a family is unlike anything you can do on land.
You can take part in a wide range of beach activities, such as boating, fishing, playing beach football/volleyball, etc.
Note that not all beaches are similar, and some are famous for different reasons. If you want to do some kayaking, be sure to visit a beach that will let you do that. It is also essential to go to a beach where you will have many choices for the whole family.
In 2021, after the lockdown, many beaches will open just in time for Spring. So sit down and plan well ahead now.
Play Outdoor Games
In the winter, spring, or summer, you don’t have to stay home and get bored with your loved ones. There are many outdoor games that you can play, regardless of the level of skills you have. You don’t have to be an expert to go out in the winter season even.
In 2021, even in the depths of Winter, the season allows you to play exciting snow games such as snowball relay, rope tow, and a hat trick. If the weather is clear, you can even go for a short bike race.
Talk to your family and let them suggest the games they would like to play during winter and the seasons ahead. Make a list and pick the best three that you can enjoy playing throughout the months. Get the right gear and head out with your loved ones before going back to the routine of home.
There is no better feeling than going out in the wild as a family to have quality time together. Hiking is challenging and involves a lot of perseverance. Before you go out, make this critical point clear to your family so that they prepare accordingly.
It’s best to prepare based on the part of town you intend to explore. Based on your energy and tolerance, you can choose to hike the whole day or within a few years before sitting somewhere to rest and take your lunch or evening snack.
Make sure that when hiking, you only visit the safest parts of town. These should be areas that someone you know has seen before. Even as you have fun, you must give your safety the top priority.
Go on a Picnic
Grab your picnic bucket and get going. Before you head out, decide whether you will cook away from home or carry ready-made food. Cooking is always the best thing about picnics.
You will head out together as a family, and everyone is free to prepare their favourite dishes. Whether you want to prepare pancakes or fried eggs, you can do it away from home and show your loved ones that you are a great cook.
