Family fun makes everyone happy

Summer is a great time to get the family out of the house for some enjoyable activities as the days are warm, there is increased daylight and there are flowers everywhere.

Below are some great ideas for family fun that will keep your kids safe and happy:

Avoid drama
With the worries of winter driving behind you, families are taking to the open road for those long car trips to the cottage and other fun destinations. If your children start to get restless, try reading them a story or share the enjoyment of a new video release with a portable DVD player. The latest versions offer two LCD screens for the price of one, so the whole car no longer needs to huddle around one screen.

Scream for ice cream

Organize the family to take a bike trip to the local ice cream shop and indulge in your favourite flavours. Make sure to wear helmets and to review the safety signals with the kids before putting the bike to pavement. Ice cream is a great treat in the middle of a bike ride.

Play a ballgame

Playing catch is a great way to enjoy the outdoors and get some exercise with your kids.

Whatever you plan to do this spring, make sure the whole family is involved and having fun. We only get a few short months of this great season so make the most of it.
