Fun Days Out For The Whole Family

Fun days out can be the bane of any family, especially when young kids are involved. Whether it be planning a day out on a budget, or trying to inspire your children to do great things with educational trips, it can be a tough chore. When looking for a good day out that everyone can enjoy, here is what I look for.


Price:
I’m sure you know the pain of being on a bit of a budget when it comes to getting the family out. There are mouths to feed as well as minds to inspire and keep entertained. Fun days out for kids can be the hardest part of any parent’s job. The best thing to do is to pick something that is not only affordable for your budget, but can be enjoyed by all!

When considering the price; look at what you plan on eating, as this can be the biggest drain on your budget. It could be cheaper to take a picnic for your family - and healthier too!


Activities:
After the price, you need to decide what you want to do with your family. Do you want to get into the great outdoors and do some exploring? Or do you want to do something indoors whilst the rain pours down outside?


You could go out and explore Eilean Donan Castle, or you could go to an indoor play centre and let the kids run themselves tired. Whatever you choose to do to kill some time with the family, make sure it’s fun and enjoyable for all.

Can the whole family get involved?
If the whole family can’t be involved, then what’s the point in going? Right? The best thing about trips to the great outdoors is that everyone can enjoy the walking, climbing and exploring of the day. And the best thing about indoor play centres is that the kids can run riot in a safe environment. And the parents can have fun watching them while sitting back and relaxing over a drink. Whatever you may choose to do, make sure that fun can be had by all. And make sure the kids will be exhausted by the end of the day, allowing you an easy drive home.

Getting there and back:
This has got to be one of the most irritating parts of any day out. How will we all get there? How will we get back? Is it cheaper to take the bus or car? These are all questions that you will likely ask, and should consider. When it comes to the affordability of your day out, ensure that the method of getting about you choose is cost efficient. For instance, maybe taking a cheaper would be better for your purse than taking the family car? Public transport isn’t just better for the environment, but can be an easier, and more affordable, way of getting where you want to go .

These are only some of the things that I keep an eye on when planning a family day out. And if you keep an eye on these factors too, then I’m sure that a fantastic time can be had by all.

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is
