Around the World in a Week Staycation
You don’t have to travel the world to learn about the traditions and culture of other places.
Why not travel the world in your own backyard?
Pick a new country each day to focus on. Have the day focus on the food, music, art, history, and traditions of that culture.
You can spend quality family time learning new recipes and games from the country of that day. Try learning some new words from the native language and even have a family cooking or dance contest displaying your best skills for that cultural evening.
You could even decorate your backyard or family room to go with each theme.
Your family will learn about the world and other places around the globe without ever leaving home and have a great time doing it.
You don’t have to travel to some swanky resort across the country to have some fun family time. Turn your house into a resort.
Take on a backyard project that creates an oasis that is perfect for you. Whether it is making your own backyard mini golf course or the perfect place for entertaining guests you can make it so you never need a vacation again because you have the perfect place for rest and relaxation right outside your door.
Clear out things you don’t need and look into getting an Inner City Moving & Storage Company to keep the things you may need later.
Set up the tent and have fun camping while staring at the night sky and singing songs around the fire. You could use a projector to set up your own outdoor backyard drive-in. Dig out the lawn chairs and reclining loungers and create your own spa day.
If you don’t have a pool or want something different for a change, why not build your own backyard waterpark.
Road Tripping Staycation Ideas for Families
If you just can’t stand sitting around the house for another day and want to still head out for an adventure why not plan a local road trip.
Pretend You’re Tourists
