So, you need to think of some ideas that are going to win your children around and improve your standing. There are a million and one ways in which you can achieve that goal. However, we’ve come up with three strategies that are guaranteed to make them think you’re the bee’s knees. Take a quick read through these suggestions and see if any are relevant to your family. You can thank us later when your kids buy a “World’s Best Dad” t-shirt on Father’s day.
Don’t buy their toys – build them!
There is no getting away from the fact that all children love toys. Most parents head out to their local store and buy the latest products to keep them happy. However, there is another, slightly more magical solution. With the birth of 3D printing technology has come a wealth of new opportunities for parents. You can now create 3D toys for your child in a matter of minutes if you have the right design skills. So, nothing is stopping you from building custom action figures that look like your kids. You could also produce games and many other products they might enjoy. How cool is that?
Arrange days out at theme parks
All kids love to spend time at theme parks with their parents. You might not enjoy the big rides, but your little ones will go mad for them. So, maybe you should search online for some discount deals during the next couple of months. To a child, a trip to the theme park is the most exciting thing in the world. With that in mind, you should surprise them and refrain from mentioning where you are going until you’re almost there. Take lots of photographs and make sure your children never forget their exciting day riding the big dipper.
Join a local sports team with your child
As a parent, you want your child to grow into a healthy adult. That means you’ll have to encourage them to move away from their games consoles every so often. Joining a parent and child sports team together could be the perfect solution. Maybe your little one has shown an interest in football or basketball? You’d only have to search online to find teams that accept people of all ages. You’ll get to spend some quality time with your child, but you’ll both also get in shape at the same time. So, everyone’s a winner!
There should be enough ideas there to help you make a start. Of course, you know your kids better than us. So, you’re the one best placed to identify their interests and encourage them. Just make sure you don’t turn into one of those parents who works all the time. Like it or not, your children get excited at the idea of spending a day or two with you. You just need to think of the best ways to keep yourselves entertained.
