I am really looking forward to preparing our bikes for the first days of spring and get everything ready for our first family bike tour of 2021. And I appreciate that you made it here to check out my FollowMe Tandem Review! Let’s see if we can get your questions answered, shall we? Continue reading →
As outside temperatures begin to rise, it’s time to get back outside! I love getting out of the house with my kids, and they love it too. There’s nothing like a bit of dirt and fresh air to make your little ones smile from ear to ear. Another bonus is they sleep well afterward, too. But what are the best fun outdoor activities for toddlers?
Just think back to your own childhood and the outdoor things you loved to do. It may be old to you, but it’s brand new to them. One of the best things about having kids is you get to share all the stuff you loved growing up with them.
Being inside doesn’t have to be boring! In fact, you can make it into an enjoyable family bonding time by trying out some fun indoor activities together.
When the memory of outdoor, summertime fun grows distant, finding enjoyable indoor activities to prevent winter boredom can be challenging. It’s not always possible to venture out of the house for family entertainment, so I thought you might like a few ideas for indoor activities all the family can do together at home.
I’ve listed the ideas in five sections, Arts & Crafts, In the Kitchen, Outdoors Indoors, Science Experiment, and Showstopper! Let’s take a more in-depth look at my favorite fun indoor activities for families.
In this article, I’m going to give you some easy dinner recipes for the family that everyone will enjoy. If like me you find cooking evening meals a bit of a chore, especially after a busy day at work, then my quick and easy recipes for dads are a perfect solution for you!
Being a Dad is such great fun! I sure do have a fantastic time reliving some of my own childhood memories, when I do fun stuff with my son Benni. I’ll bet you rekindle your fondest memories when you do fun activities with your children too.
But have you ever thought about how your own Dad used to enjoy spending time with you when you were small? A great way to renew those old bonds, and have some fun along the way, is to revive this partnership. This is achievable by doing new activities together, or some of those you enjoyed doing as a kid, fishing for example.
In this article, we’re going to take a look at lots more fun things to do with your Dad that will give you some ideas for great father-son activities. Continue reading →
Archery is many things—it is a useful outdoor sport, a way to build self-esteem and a great way to bond. Ultimately, it also teaches your kids valuable skills to provide themselves with food and protection in a survival situation. It certainly is one of the most well-rounded skills you can teach kids because of its numerous benefits.
Dads don’t always get the credit for these special bonding moments with their children. But teaching your children archery is like teaching them fishing—it’ll leave them with memories they will never forget! (Of course, the same advice applies to moms as well). Here you’ll find useful information on the many benefits of archery, as well as archery sets for children that are perfect for teaching your son or daughter to aim.
You may or may not be aware of the fact that in our family, I am the one who picks up our 3-year old son Benni from kindergarten at least four times a week. When I do that the challenge is always the same: How to make the best out of the time we are spending together on that particular afternoon? How to spend quality time with your child without just “doing something for the sake of it” and counting down the hours until mom comes home from the office?
That may sound a bit harsh. But if you are a busy parent who, besides working and being a mom or dad for the most part, also has interests and hobbies and basically a life of his own, you will most likely agree that keeping your kids entertained while having a good time yourself can be a real challenge.
Which brings me to the point that there is a huge difference between spending time together and spending QUALITY time. It is easy to just being with your kid and deliberately making an effort to make the best out of it you can! While the first is something we all can do “somehow”, the latter can be a real challenge. My goal is to be there for my son as much as possible when he is around; and that can become quite stressful, especially when you happen to run out of ideas.
Hence, in this blog post I want to look at the top 5 activities that I enjoy the most when it comes down to spending quality time with my son. I want to look at five top-level activities that you can leverage to enjoy time together with your kids. Activities, that you can enjoy together as a “team”. So let’s get started…
It’s my 33rd birthday today. At the time I am writing this I am standing in the line at the top roller coaster attraction of our local theme park, called Phantasialand, which is close to Cologne in Germany, the city where I live.
“So wait: You’re talking about a father son day, yet you are blogging at the same time!?”, you may think. And that’s a totally valid point. Let’s say: My Father Son Day plan had a pitfall I did not see coming! I’ll explain that later 🙂 Continue reading →
