When it comes to planning in fun for the family, you can often find yourself sticking to the same old plans. Most of the time they work. If your kids love to do certain things and you’ve found a good rhythm, why change it? Keeping your kids busy is a lot of work, so there’s no need to change what works for you. But, sometimes, you might like to add to that. It can often be a lot of fun to plan in some big ideas that can allow you to create memories for life. Some will require a bit of saving, but if you’re interested in planning something fun for the future, here are a few ideas to consider.
Every Kid’s Dream
One thing a lot of parents always want to plan in for their kids (and kind of for them) is a trip to Disneyland. Whether it’s to Florida, Paris, or even Asia, the trip can require a lot of saving. But it’s always worth breaking the bank for. You can even travel to Disneyland on a budget. Consider traveling in the off season, looking for discounted tickets, and doing little extras like packing your own food to cut corners with the cost.
Survive & Thrive
Next up, an idea that you kids will definitely love and that can come with a budget as big or a little as you’d like. Camping can be a cost effective holiday idea. Take that to the forest, and you’ve got a survival break. You may want to pitch a tent and fend for yourselves as a way of having some cheap fun, or go all out and hire a private lodge on a lake and have the rural time of your lives.
Head On The Road
Then there’s also the idea of a road trip. Again, this can be as inexpensive as you want it to be. But it’s still just as big and bold as some of the other options. Pack up your car or hire a motorhome and hit the road. You can stop off on some of the country’s most stunning locations, visit friends or family, and make your journey as long or as short as you like. If you go over the school holidays, you can make it a trip to remember for weeks on end.
Enjoy A White Christmas
Another big budget idea is the idea of going away for Christmas. As much as it can be nice to stay close to family during the festive period, it’s also exciting for everyone to be able to enjoy a family Christmas in the snow just once. If this is something you’ve always wanted to do, make a savings plan, set a date and get yourself in gear.
And let’s end on another big budget beauty. Safari! Again, this can be an idea that every family would love to have. But it doesn’t have to cost the earth. Not only can you find budget-friendly breaks, but you can also head to family friendly safari lodges too. Then, you’ll be able to plan a trip of a lifetime and give yourself something to look forwards to saving for too!
