WHAT TO DO WITH THE FAMILY WHEN YOU HAVE NO WI-FI
Living in the 21st century, Wi-Fi is often considered the be the 'be all and end all' for the younger generations – so you can imagine the panic that sets in when you tell the kids they’ll have no Wi-Fi for a whole weekend… God forbid they have to go a weekend without posting on Instagram!
Not to worry though, we’re here to help you prepare with our list of activities to do when you have no Wi-Fi.
Fishing is the perfect way to bring the family together. Not only does it promote family bonding, but it is good for the mind. Fishing is considered to be a very therapeutic activity and is recognised for its stress relieving benefits. For those with younger children, fishing also builds upon several handy skills including independence, coordination and motor planning.
Here's an idea, why not turn it into a competition and see who catches the biggest fish – winner get a free pass on the dishes!
Board games are a classic way to entertain the family. From Twister to Cluedo or even a simple pack of cards, there are so many options to choose from! If you’re creative, you could always resort to a game of charades – nothing beats the frustration of trying to guess what your team member is miming!
Although maybe leave monopoly at home, you don’t want any family feuds!
More importantly, use the trip to teach your kids the value of switching off. Time spent with family is far greater than time spent staring at a screen.
