Sure, we might not be able to go out and about right now. It’s important that we stay home to slow the spread of coronavirus, protect ourselves, protect others and support the healthcare services. But that doesn’t mean we can’t start making plans for when the situation gets better and we’re all free from our homes in the future! In fact, planning can be a fun way to use your time in isolation and can really help to lift your family’s spirits, giving everyone something to look forward to! So, if you’re thinking up some great summer plans, here are a few additions you might like to make to your to-do list!
The first thing many of us want to do after coming out of this situation is to head on holiday. What could be better than some sun, sea and sand after such a stressful time? Take a look at different destinations you and your family might like to visit. There are so many places out there. Family friendly resorts tend to be a good option, with all-inclusive food and drinks to meet your kids’ appetites, pools, clubs and other activities.
Camping can be great fun and is greatly underrated. When it comes to getaways, many of us automatically think of the kind of summer holidays we listed above - beach holidays. But when it comes down to it, you don’t have to head overseas or to sunny and tropical destinations to have lots of fun. Look up some family friendly campsites where you and your little ones can pitch a tent while still being in a safe environment with all the basic home comforts like electricity, showers and working toilets.
If the weather is fine by the time we get out of lockdown, a trip to a local beauty spot could be a great opportunity to kick back and relax. Pack up a picnic with all your children’s favourites and a drinks cooler with cold beverages. You could even take along some ice fishing tackle kits from Tailored Tackle if there’s a lake nearby to do a little fishing.
Visit Long Distance Family
You’re probably missing family members who live further afield. So, why not arrange a family reunion and make the journey to catch up once all of this is over? We’ve all gained an increased appreciation of our loved ones during this time, so chances are they’ll be delighted to see you and your little ones in person.
Museums and Art Galleries
So many exhibitions have had to be cancelled with museums and art galleries being closed during the current worldwide situation. But they’re bound to be put back on once we’re all free to visit these places again. So, take a look at what might be coming up!
These are just a few different activities that you and your family might enjoy once we’re all free to head out and get on with our day to day lives again!
