Family Fun

When you have a variety of ages in your house, it is hard to find activities that suit everyone.  Usually, the activities tend to be more for the younger ones and then the older kids are bored.  Activities that are too difficult for the younger ones or that have age or height restrictions mean us having to get someone else to watch the younger ones so we are always on the lookout for things that we can do as a family all together.  We have a restriction that most families don’t, in that the activities have to be indoors because one of our daughters can’t be outside in the Spring, Summer, and Fall.

At Christmas, Auntie Leah and Uncle Jarred had given us a gift certificate for a local indoor amusement centre so on Saturday, we set off to put it to use.  I had gone to the website and knew that the only things to do there were 10-pin bowling, arcade games, and laser tag.  Before we left home, we settled on the bowling.  When we got there, the bowling wasn’t available and so by default, laser tag won out.  We really didn’t think it would fly with Sedaya as the vests are five pounds and initially, she found it too heavy and was complaining.  Once we got in there though, she forgot all about the weight of the vest and she has a blast!  All the kids did!  This was one activity that was perfect for the variety of ages and interests in our family.  All the kids agree on one thing: Laser Tag was awesome!

  1. We struggle with finding things to do that suit all ages, too. We’ve never tried laser tag. I’ll have to check that out! Thanks for the idea, and I’m glad everyone had fun!
