Having children is one of the greatest joys of life, but before you know it they will be all grown up, and you will be wondering where the time has gone. Due to this, it is so important that you make the most of your time together and do things that will help preserve the close bond you have with one another. If you make an effort to put in the time and energy when your children are young to do fun things with one another, then even when they grow up and move out, you will have a strong connection and be able to preserve your relationship for years to come.
Take them to see their first concert
Going to see live music is a fun thing to do at any age and taking your child to see their first concert is a great idea to spend some more time together.

You can get some advice to help you teach your kids how to ride a bike so that you approach the subject in a good way that your child can actually learn from.

Write stories together
Getting creative is something children are gifted at, and it is important to nurture this talent that often gets lost with age. One way of doing this is to learn the basics of storytelling and start writing short stories together.
These don’t need to be great works of literature but more fun things to do in the afternoon of a weekend to have some fun.
