Great ideas for fun things to do with kids

Topic: Great ideas for fun things to do with kids

Hey guys, 
What do you like to do with the kids when you've got time on your hands?
We've got a little park down the road, but the kids are not really that into climbing on the jungle gyms.
I do like to:
- take them to the zoo
- go to a small restaurant and order them milkshakes
- go for a long walk around the neighbourhood
- take them swimming

What do you do with the kids that doesn't cost a fortune?

Re: Great ideas for fun things to do with kids

I love going to the farmyard with my kids. I tried something different the other day: the roller rink! It was fun, but there's a lot of skill involved and we had none, so we struggled a bit. My kids still enjoy going to restaurants where there's a big jungle gym, so that makes an easy play date out.

My kids loves to explore and so I did adapt with them.
Growing up kids have much more preference than little kids.
But as much as possible, I want them to re-experience the time when they are still young.

My kids activities that us parents really enjoyed bonding with them:
1. Buy ice cream
2. Go to the arcade, spend and go oversupply of coins to play 
3. Visit museums
4. Visit a bookstore and browse for a few hours
5. Movie date
6. Play basketball at home or in the park
7. Visit art stores, eldest son likes calligraphy
8. Picnic at the park
9. Fly a kite
10. Go swimming.
11. Go bowling.
12, Stroll in the mall
13. Spend a day at the beach.
14. Go to a restaurant - eat all you can buffet
15. Buy something childish

Usually I try to play with my son in every activity, like when changing his clothes, when giving him food etc, but in the spare time I like to

  • take him to the park.

  • take him to relatives whom where he has friends

  • sometimes watch favorite movie together

  • go to shop his favorite things

  • read him a story

Great ideas! Thanks everyone. I am going to pack a picnic and take my kids out for the day. Maybe I should invest in a kite!

I always stroll with my daughter in the morning. Then I usually bring her with me in the market, in the grocer..literally, anywhere!

I'm planning to take her to the zoo because she loves animals.
