Family friendly staycation ideas for homeschoolers
Wouldn’t it be fun to play a vacation that didn’t involve 20 hours in the car? It’d be great to save money, too! Summer is right around the corner and vacation planning starts now.
Here are some fun ideas you can do as a family that children of all ages could enjoy! And you don’t have to wait until summer.
Search your local camping sites and you can find cabins for rental. You don’t even have to go any further than your own backyard. Even a makeshift tent will do! Here’s one idea: Backyard tent.
Drive and Picnic
Load the family up head out for a day-trip! Keep the destination from the kids. Pack a picnic lunch. Keep the electronics and devices off. Sing, talk, and have fun. See what’s to be seen no more than two hours from home!
It doesn’t have to be expensive or fancy!
Date with a Book
If you’re a family that appreciates time at home and a staycation to you means staying at home, try a date with a book. Each family member wraps up a copy of their favorite book to share with another family member. You can write the description of the contents (don’t give away the title!). Here are some fun ideas: Date with a Book
Visit an Old Family Friend (or relative you’ve not seen in ages)
It seems today people have forgotten the fun of visiting friends and family who live a little further than across town. This one will take a little more planning and consent from the party you’ll visit. Come up with a hostess gift as a family to share. And your favorite foods or dessert!
Each Night a New Adventure!
A week’s staycation affords you seven different opportunities to try new things! Library, museum, nature center, park, roller skating, swimming, or a movie! You’ll sleep soundly each night from the adventure, but in the comfort of your own bed. Each day will bring a new thing to do.
You don’t have to spend a lot of money, do anything fancy, or be gone from home for days and days to enjoy a good time with your family. Keep a journal, take pictures, make memories!
