Us mummies know that children grow up far too quickly. One second they’re toddlers, the next they are teenagers. While we are always happy to see our children growing and thriving, for us, there is a sense of nostalgia that comes as our little ones start to grow up.
As kids grow so quickly, I think that making memories with them is incredibly important. Making memories with your children isn’t just important for you, but also for them. We all have those fond memories of fun that we had with our parents, and it’s only natural that we want to provide our kids with the same.
To help you create some amazing memories with your little ones, I have put together a list of some fun, memory making ideas, below:
I don’t know about you, but some of my happiest childhood memories are going on family trips during the summer holidays. If you can get a few days off of work, why not plan a trip that the kids will love?
Taking the kids away doesn’t have to be expensive, especially if you choose to go camping. Camping is fun, full of adventure, and best of all, memorable. Kids love spending time outside, so taking them on a camping trip is perfect for them.
To make your trip even more memorable, why not book the whole family onto some exciting activities? From horse riding excursions to white water rafting, there are lots of fun, memorable activities that you could choose from.
Have a family photoshoot done
A great way to create a memory that will last forever of you and your children is having a professional family photoshoot. Not only will the photoshoot itself be fun and enjoyable, but you will also have the amazing photo that you can keep forever.
As well as traditional family photo shoots, you could also consider booking a unique photoshoot. Many photographers offer lots of unusual photoshoot ideas so that you can have the perfect family photo.
If you love the idea of having a photograph taken outside, then get in touch with family photographer, Hillary Pittsenbargar. She is one of many photographers willing to shoot in various locations and can capture natural photographs that are ideal for making memories.
Bake with your kids
I always remember being a child and baking with my mother – I absolutely loved it. For me, making cakes with my mum was one of my happiest memories, which is why I love spending time baking with my little ones.
A great way to make memories with your children is taking the time to bake with them. Whether that’s making cookies or brownies that doesn’t matter, just as long as you spend time cooking with them. I always find that my kids enjoy baking a lot more when I allow them to choose what we make and make baking fun.
As mums, we know that our kids grow up way too fast, which is why making memories with them is so important. There are lots of ways you can make memories with your little ones; the key is having fun and spending time as a family.
