I am not a teacher by profession, but I have been working with kids since I was 11, making me the unofficial go-to person among my peers for some suggestions of fun activities to do with your kids on weekends. It’s not that hard, really. My principle has always been to get them moving and get them away from the computer or the iPad or just about anything that involves finger twiddling. Kids nowadays need to go out and do something "human." Here is my list of seven activities to do with your kids on weekends.
1. Picnic at a Wildlife Park
Others call this "visiting a zoo" and it's considered one of the top activities to do with your kids on weekends. Whatever you call this activity, the essential part is getting out of the house and meeting your fellow creatures from Kingdom Animalia. Your kids need to know what a real bird looks like, and not just Twitter’s ubiquitous bird. They need to know that the outdoor offers an array of colorful and beautiful beings that can be best experience if they go offline and see the world.
