Fun Tips for Families
(NC)-Even though the first day of spring is in March, Canadians generally do not start to thaw themselves out until the month of May, when it truly starts to warm up.
Spring is a great time to get the family out of the house for some enjoyable activities as the days are warmer, there is increased daylight and there are flowers sprouting everywhere.
Below are some great ideas for family fun that will keep your kids safe and happy:
Avoid "Are we there yet" and "How much longer" 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 the Philips portable DVD player. The latest versions, available at national retail outlets for as little as $169, offer two LCD screens for the price of one, so the whole car no longer needs to huddle around one screen.
We all 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.
Take me out to the ballgame...in the backyard. Playing catch is a great way to enjoy the outdoors and get some exercise with your kids. And you never have to worry about missing an important call with a Philips DECT (digital enhanced cordless telecommunications) phone that provides excellent reception, with no interference from the neighbours even when you are outside.
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.
