Top Family Staycations

Need help planning a Family Staycation. Look no further, here is a quick guide for tips on planning your family’s Staycation.
Camping-Set up a tent! If you would like a camping staycation set up a tent in the back yard. If it seems like rain, set up the tent in the garage or maybe in the middle of your living room! It doesn’t matter where the tent is so long as you sleep in it. If you do not have a tent just pull out the sleeping bags and sleep under the stars or by the fireplace inside. No sleeping bags? Use blankets! You don’t need much gear to have a fun family camping trip to nowhere!
Out of the Kitchen–Cook out or pack a picnic! During your staycation you need to stay clear of the kitchen as much as possible. Either plan on cooking on the griddle or prepare picnic items that you can instantly grab from the fridge. Eat on a blanket outside or on the sitting room floor if the weather is bad. Or try something else by arranging a make-your-own pizza night or salad bar night. Both are good options if it’s raining and you are compelled to eat indoors. Tell stories as you eat and enjoy yourselves! Switch off the TV! No Television in a staycation… None! No PCs or cell telephones either. This is family time. Play board games, read books aloud, sing songs, tell stories, go for a stroll, ride bikes, climb trees. Just do something different!
Invite the Neighbors–Round up the neighbors! Want your staycation to be even more fun? Ask the neighbors to go on a staycation at the same time as you! Get together for B.B.Q.s and yard games. Take turns swimming in each others pools. Go spend a group day together at a park. Have family day at a local lake. Or have a family friendly block party! Take day trips! If you’re taking a whole week off or even a weekend off plan some day trips.
Be a Tourist–If you were on a regular vacation you would get out to see the sites. So you must do the same on your staycation! Visit a museum or go to the local library. Visit your fire station or police station. Walk around graveyards to take a look at old gravestones. Or take a ride to the lake or the beach or visit a store you haven’t ever been to. And save cash on food by bringing your own lunch.
Work- Get work done!- What? Working on a staycation? Sure! Why not! Work can be good fun when you do it as a family. Does your place need painting? Have a painting party! Invite everybody you know and ask them to bring food. Everybody can paint in the day then have a pleasant pot luck dinner in the evening. Those who need to spend the night can bring their own tents. This is a way and inexpensive way to do a huge task that you routinely would have to hire somebody to finish for you.
Swap homes!- If you are unable to afford to get away but you actually do need to get away considering swapping houses with another relative just so you may have a change of views. Perhaps you would like to run away from the town and can swap homes with someone that wants to get out of their little city for a bit. Or perhaps you can trade your lake front home for your best buddy’s beach house. Or perhaps you just need to enjoy a different back yard for a change. The entire point is to keep it inexpensively and to enjoy yourself. Family Staycation here you come!
