Summer is the perfect time to hang out with your kids. However, if you are in the middle of a divorce, planning for visitation can be a stressful process. Also, during the school year, it might be too hectic for a week-long vacation or weekend camping trip. But the summer brings more time for family-based activities.
We here at Circling Eagle Law want you to have a wonderful time with your family this summer, so we have the tips for what activities to try during summer visitation! We encourage you to think outside of the box and beyond sandy beaches. So keep reading to find out what you can do with your kids this summer!
1. Plan A Vacation
While this may seem self-explanatory, vacation planning is more difficult when multiple parties are involved. If your ex-spouse takes your children to the beach, think about other creative places you can take your kids. Ask them what they would like to do over the summer or any locations they would like to travel to within reason. By involving your child in the decision-making process, they are sure to remember this vacation for a long time.
2. Cooking Lessons
Not all visitations are lengthy enough for full vacations, so what can you do with your kids to make time with you memorable? One fun and practical skill to share with your kids is cooking. You could start with a simple dish, like eggs, or pasta, teaching them how to cook for themselves. This is a practical lesson but also a great way to bond with your child!
3. Outside Time
Since the summer brings lovely weather to North Dakota, consider outdoor activities with your kids. Perhaps you could take them on an overnight camping trip, enjoying wildlife along the way. You can also spend outdoor time with them at home, providing them with outdoor activities. By spending time with them outside, they have the opportunity to expend energy and have fun.
4. Just Relax
Think back on what you did as a kid in the summers. Not every day had grand events or plans from your parents. While it is easy to stress and worry about making the most of visitation time, children also need time to relax! It’s okay just to kick back and watch a movie or play video games with your kids. Just vary the different activities that you all do!
