If you have kids or if you are a grandparent who wants to spend some time with the grandchildren then there are plenty of ideas out there.
Go to an Arena Show
If you want to go to something that the kids will love then why not spend the day out and then go to a fun-packed arena show? You can easily go to see some of the many child-oriented shows out there and they are all packed full of crowd-interaction. You can even stay at the AC Hotel Guadalajara if you want, and this is a great way for you to spend some time socialising with other people as well.
Build a bonfire
Another great thing that you can do is get out there and build a bonfire. You can do this on the beach or you can even do it in your own backyard. When you do build a bonfire, make sure that you have plenty of marshmallows and even pack some fruity snacks as well to make the whole thing come together. This is a brilliant way for you to really relax and the kids will love it as well. The best thing about this is that you can easily make the whole thing a family event and it is something that everyone will enjoy.
Squirt Gun Art
If you have a water gun then you already have nearly everything you need to have a great time. You can get the whole family outside and if things get messy then you don’t have to worry about anything at all. You can use your garden hose to spray the whole garden down and this will remove any art that doesn’t really belong in the garden. To do this, all you have to do is dilute a bit of paint and then put it in an old water pistol. It helps to have a couple of these on-hand because it means that you can easily have one for each colour, and the kids will absolutely love it.
Go Watch the Fireworks
If the weather is great then why not go and watch some fireworks? There are plenty of destinations that offer this kind of thing and it is very easy for you to find a show near you. Watching the sky light up with kids for the very first time can be a magical experience and most of the time you don’t even need to travel far either. All you have to do is wander down to your local park and see if there is anything being hosted. You can even have some hotdogs on the way home and this is one of the best ways for you to have an incredible experience without breaking the bank.
Kids will have tons of fun making their own ice-pops and it is a great way for you to cool them down after a very long day. They can have hours of fun doing this and the colours when they are frozen are unlike anything you’ll have seen before! Try adding fresh fruit for a nice twist.
Life as a grandma.. it's no 'quiet, restful days in the rocking-chair'. It's filled with activity, excitement and lots of family fun. Please share it with me.
