Unusual Family Activities to Try Today


The family that does weird stuff together, stays together… isn’t that how the saying goes?

Going on camping, bowling, or doing art together is all fun stuff. However, if you want to give your
kids an experience that will be so unique that they will always remember it, look at the list of
unusual family activities below. You might find that you end up providing your kids with skills and
an educational experience without even intending to.


Put on a show


Everyone loves a good show, and a brilliant way to bring the family together could be to
create a family filled show that everyone can participate and enjoy in. This could be a talent
show, a play or something entirely different. The fun is not only in the performing, but it can
also be in the planning and preparation. If you want to put on a good effort to make it a show
to remember, you can get to work with the kids on making props and setting up a staged
area. If that is too much effort, then you can always just cover a section of the patio in fairy
lights and maybe some drapes, to make it feel like a designated special area!

Extreme adventures


Extreme sports are becoming more and more diverse, and many families can take part in
these adventures together for experiences to never forget. Ziplining, zorbing, cave diving,
and rapid rafting can all be brilliant group activities, and tons of fun. Taking part in sport
activities as a family, encourages confidence, team building, trust building, and exercise of
course. After dipping your toes in, you could find that your family has a new passion to enjoy
during weekends and holidays together, and one of the kids may even carry the love for
sport into their adulthood.


Surviving together


Similarly to extreme sports, survivalism is an intense activity that the whole family can take
part in and find many useful skills from. Many people now believe that it is essential to teach
kids survival techniques as they have become too reliant on modern technology to be able to
act responsibly in a serious emergency. There are companies that offer survival activity days
for groups and there are also plenty of resources online on websites and YouTube to give
you ideas on activities to try together.


Gold panning


Gold panning is not only going to be a fun activity for the family to try together, and
potentially rewarding, but it also offers an opportunity to teach. This activity can provide a
chance for you teach your kids about the gold rush history as well as giving out some ‘gems’
on geology and local geography. Companies like Irwin’s Paydirt can take out some of the
difficulty in finding some real gold for the kids to pan out too. You can purchase one of their
dirt bags with a chosen quantity of gold somewhere mixed inside, and then just head down
to the river with your family to pan it out.

All unusual activities to try, but all guaranteed to be lots of fun!
