If you’re anything like us, most of your hikes don’t actually involve that much planning. You pick a trail, you drive there, and you wander through the wilderness for an hour or so. It’s pretty self-explanatory.
But when you’ve got a few kids on your hands and endless hours to kill, a little structure is bound to help! Younger kids can be easily bored, after all, so the simple act of working a family hike into smaller segments, with ample stops for tired feet, can keep the adventure feeling fresh. When the skies are blue and the sun is smiling your way, it would be a shame not to seize the day for all its worth!
Looking for ways to entertain the kids?
Go ahead and make use of these two at-home labs. Cheap, simple, and educational alike, these classic experiments are made entirely from things you can find in the kitchen (apart from cabbage... But it’s a 69¢ investment, so we’ll let it slide).

Lucky for you, we’ve got loads of ideas to keep your loved ones entertained. As frustrating as it may be to stay cooped up with seemingly nothing to do, we firmly believe that all of this ‘together-time’ may actually be a blessing in disguise! After all, nothing screams “Family Bonding” like cancelled classes and shuttered office doors.
With this in mind, please enjoy these 3 ways to avoid family “cabin fever.”
