Give The Kids A BreakPlaning some family fun does not mean that you need to plan an expensive family vacation. You can find fun times for the entire family in and around your home, your neighborhood, and your town.

Go to the library let each child pick out a book that you will read aloud at a specified time during the day. If the children are old enough to read then have a specified time for each child to tell you and the other children about the book and why they like it. Pick a movie that all the children will enjoy seeing, then enjoy a meal out with the kids, watch a movie, then stop for their favorite dessert on the way home. Call your local fire department offer tours for children or families. Small children could enjoy seeing the fire trucks and ladder trucks up close. Plan a bus trip (instead of taking the car) to a city museum for children that are young enough to find a different mode of traveling exciting and fun. Have a backyard picnic complete with water play. Squirt guns for all, including adults, could provide the water play, and every one is fair game. You'll dry out while eating your lunch and having a reading session on blankets spread on the ground afterwards. Tour a candy factory, a police station, or a firehouse and let the children pick their own candy as a special treat. If you tour the candy factory first, buy extra candy and let the kids pass it out at the police and fire department.
