According to a recent study, “Americans are enjoying just 37 minutes of “quality time” as a family on weekdays.” While these figures generally increase over the weekend and during the holidays, this is clearly too little time when you consider the far-ranging benefits of spending quality time together as a family.

After all, increased family time can: 

  • Improve the bond you share with your kids, whether you’re working on developing a good relationship with your teenager or your toddler. 

  • Create a bright, welcoming atmosphere within your home, where your children feel able to approach you should they encounter any problems in their lives.

  • Improve both your mental and physical health. 

With that in mind, here are some simple, creative ways in which you can begin to spend more time together as a family moving forward. 

Visit a virtual museum or art gallery. Virtual museum and art gallery tours present you with the perfect opportunity to spend more time with your kids, while also teaching them more about the world - and you don’t even have to leave your sofa to do it. Many of the biggest and best museums digitised their exhibits during the pandemic, meaning you have plenty of options to choose from, such as the Vatican Museums or London’s Natural History Museum. 

Watch a game in a stadium. Whether your kids are fans of basketball or American Football, attending a live game together is always a treat! This is because you can soak up the atmosphere of the stadium while supporting your favorite teams.

Go for a hike. Going for a hike gives you the chance to chat with your children while exploring the great outdoors. This brings along many additional benefits as it helps you get fit and active, while also boosting mental health. This gives you the chance to focus on all aspects of your children's health, showing them how great it is to get up and get moving. Furthermore, there are always new hikes or places to discover no matter where you’re located. For example, more experienced hikers can head on an adventure hike, whereas those who are just getting used to the great outdoors can opt for a walk that is a little less complicated, but still lots of fun. 

Build a Den in your home. Sometimes, the best way to have some family fun is to step back and embrace old-school forms of entertainment. For example, you could  build a den in your living room using furniture, blankets, pillows and anything else you find lying around your house. While this does create some mess, the memories you’ll make in the process will be far better. Plus, it's a great way to spend time together, whether you use the dan as a place to sit and chat, read a book or even watch a movie. Be sure to have your camera ready to snap plenty of pics!
