    To make Friday more enjoyable:

    1. Make it a tradition: Pick a few activities you and your kids love and make them a weekly practice. This will give everyone something to look forward to on Fridays.

    2. Get everyone involved: Don’t just leave the planning to the adults. Get the kids involved in planning the activities. This will help them feel more invested and excited about the activities.

    3. Be flexible: Things don’t always go according to plan, so be prepared to be flexible. If it’s raining, you can always switch to an indoor activity.

    4. Most importantly, have fun! The most important thing is to have fun with your kids. These are the memories that they will cherish for a lifetime.

    Spending time with children not only benefits the children but parents too –

    Also, children spending more time with their parents are likelier to do well in school. This is because they have more opportunities to learn and to receive support from their parents.

    They feel safe and supported when they are with their parents, and it fosters: 

    1. Better social skills: Children who spend time with their parents are likelier to have good social skills. This is because they learn how to interact with others from their parents.

    2. Stronger relationships: Children who spend time with their parents are likelier to have strong relationships with their parents, siblings, and friends. They have a foundation of love and support to build these relationships.

    As a parent how can I make sure my kids stay interested in these activities? It might be challenging to grab their attention and sustain focus.

    Your children will love helping you pick activities if you allow them to! Choose games that are appropriate for your children’s age range and fun. Break hard work into smaller pieces to keep them engaged. Children have limited attention spans, so take breaks. Be patient with your children as they get used to new activities. Plan ahead and create a Friday night ritual they look forward to each week!

    In particular for families with several kids, how can the activities be kept reasonably priced?

    If you want these activities to be more educational, think about adding learning elements in subtle ways. For example, you could include exploring the environment and talking about the plants and animals during outdoor activities. You could also include educational games or puzzles that are related to the activities you’re doing indoors. Encourage questions and conversations during the exercises to encourage curiosity and critical thinking. Making sure the materials are appropriate for your child’s age ensures a balance of fun and learning.

    Is there any activity that can be done with little to no parental supervision?

    Encourage children to engage in independent activities, such as constructing a “blanket fort”, establishing an art area, or establishing a “reading corner” where children can read books independently.

    Be flexible and listen to what they have to say. Spontaneous dance parties and storytelling can be equally enjoyable. The important thing is to keep it entertaining and flexible to fit their mood.
