Weekend Activities to do with Your Kids

Posted on September 20, 2021

Looking For Things To Do With Kids This Weekend? 

Weekends are a perfect time to get out of the house and participate in some fun things to do with kids!  

But sometimes, especially in the current environment, you don't want to travel far and wide to have fun. 

Outdoor laser tag is just the thing! You can play in the backyard (or maybe your local park!). There's no hassle with traffic, no need to fight over a car park.  

 

What Have Other Parents Done?

Kim, Mum to Casm booked laser tag for her party. It was a party that lasted all weekend!  

Mum, son and around 30 of his friends over 2 days played Laser tag and loved it.  The funniest part was when the adults got involved and the kids were taking them out. 

The ages of the kids were between 5 - 11yrs plus the adults. 

"Would recommend adults to play because every adult that played it said they would hire this for just a fun weekend for their family and friends to catch up. My son's scout hired it 2 weeks ago and they all loved it. Thanks again for giving us the chance to trail it and from the 30 kids and parents they gave it a 10 out of 10"

WOW! 

 

Julie from Grafton NSW is Mum to a 10-year-old boy, she decided to throw a celebrate her son's and her birthdays. This is her story.

We actually made it into two birthdays on one weekend. Primarily one for Rhys turning 10 and one for me. 

We did not stop - we had 11 boys on Saturday who started just after lunch and went non stop till 1:20 am. Then up again in the morning to do it all over for a few more hours.

PARTY IDEAS


Our next group was larger - 30 people who participated were adults and teenagers - still not sure who had the most fun!! Everyone went away with a smile on their face

LASER TAG = SUCCESS!! 

We looked around for 6 months and ummed about the "gun" theme - but decided to give it a go since most kids in our area were on a farm.

It was Awesome. A night fantastic. 

The 10-year-old boys had a blast - the sniper activity was priceless. 


 

We live on 10 acres and had 3 acres of orchard assigned for the field. We cornered it off and put up makeshift barricades, a tractor and trailer made into a "tank" thanks to the PVC pipe. We used the camo nets for bases which were great, and everyone had a blast. 

I think we used more than the 16 hours of charge. I think we used the quick charge during the rest breaks in the last few hours. We have lots of photos if you would like to use them for marketing purposes!!  



Awesome value - we are considering doing this again. We host a Christmas in July so there is thought that we might invest in it for then! Well, the parents were amazed when they picked their children up the next day. And the following day when the arrived at school the poor teacher noticed their tiredness, and they all spoke generously about the party. Amazing results we will be talking about this for a LONG time.  

I don't think we encountered any negative issues. When the boxes were open - it was exciting, the children tried it out at home with dad - good choice mum! And I can't speak higher volumes. 

It was Awesome!  See some more photos on our Facebook Page.

 

Great Value for a Long Weekend!

Ideas from Guest Blogger, Julia Hammond

Julia Hammond from MyDeal says keeping in your budget can be one of the hardest parts about raising kids. You want to give them the world but sometimes there’s other bills and expenses getting in the way. There’s still plenty of ways to while away the weekend hours without breaking the bank.

1. Try a New Kind of Game: Laser Tag at Home

Everybody knows the classics kids' games like "Hide & Go Seek", but for a budget-friendly day with a twist why not try some laser tag. 

“Renting laser tag equipment is a fun and cost-effective way to create some happy memories with family and friends. Modern Laser Tag gear lets you play either day or night, indoors or outdoors. You can play in your backyard or the local park. Get active and have fun with laser tag games that both the young and the young-at-heart can enjoy,” said Nicole Lander, Chief Fun Officer Laser Tag in a Box. 

2. Take a Long Walk

If the weather is on your side, there’s nothing better or more cost-effective than a great day in the great outdoors.  

3. Build up your Green Thumbs

The garden is a great place to have fun as a family while teaching your kids something new. 

4. Bring The Fun to Your Home

Going out every weekend can easily add up in the long run. A few weekends spent at home is a good way to stop costs from getting out of hand.  It doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg to have fun with your kids. Sometimes the best activities are the ones that bring you all together as a family.
