Indoor Activity for Family
Posted on May 27, 2020
Everyone has big dreams when it comes to an RV rental road trip with their family. While exploring national parks, hiking epic trails, and soaking up sun on the beach may be the goals, the weather could have other plans in store. When that’s the case, it’s always good to have a backup plan of your own. At 1st Choice RV, we firmly believe that time spent in your motorhome can be as fun and enjoyable as time spent out exploring. You just need to have the right ideas in place! If you run into some rainy weather on your upcoming road trip, or perhaps just need a down day to relax, consider an indoor activity for family fun.
Board Games and Card Games
Perhaps the most timeless indoor activity for the family is playing board games and card games. Of course there are countless different card games for all ages, and cards themselves are easy to pack on a road trip. Teach your kids a family favorite or learn a new game altogether. If cards aren’t your thing, the world of board games has come a long way since the days of Candy Land and Monopoly. One-stop in a local board game store and you will be astonished, and maybe even overwhelmed, by the selection. Ask for suggestions based on your family’s interests, ages, and competitive level!
Arts and Crafts
Experienced family road trippers will pack along some craft supplies in case of that rainy day. The list of neat arts and crafts projects is limited only by your own creativity, and if you need some ideas there are plenty of resources online to get you started. Whether you pack a simple set of colored pencils and construction paper or want to tackle a more complex craft, plan ahead for those rainy days. There are few better ways to stave off cabin fever than expressing your creativity.
Cook a Family Meal
Cooking a meal together is a great way to get the entire family involved in a fun process that everyone can enjoy and be proud of. Whether you are making a big hearty breakfast or trying new dinner recipes in your motorhome kitchen, it is easy to split the tasks so everyone’s hands are busy. When you are all done, sit down and reap the rewards of your hard work. Maybe you can even get everyone to help with the dishes!
Plan the Next Adventures
Sure it may be raining today, but that’s not to say it’ll be raining tomorrow or next week! Take a weather dictated day indoors to sit around the table, pour over maps, and choose the next adventure. Where does everyone want to go next? Should we hike to the top of a mountain or check out a waterfall? Do we want to mountain bike or whitewater raft? You can involve the entire family in planning your next big adventure, ensuring that everyone will have a great time once that sun comes back out!
While many people reserve rental RVs to explore the great outdoors, the great outdoors may not always cooperate. When that’s the case, you should have a slew of ideas in your back pocket to make the most of the great indoors. Don’t let a mediocre weather forecast spoil your fun!
