Family fun is important. Spending time with your family is not something that you should be willing to compromise on, and you should be doing your best to fit it in regularly. Having said that, just because you’re fitting in time with your family, doesn’t mean that you should do it at the expense of the planet. What we mean by this is that you should be trying to think of things that you can do to keep things sustainable, all while you’re having a great time with those that you love. 

In this article, we’re going to be taking a look at some of the things that you can do to spend time with your family, while keeping things sustainable. You might not enjoy everything on this list, but we’re sure there’s at least one thing for you.

Go To The Farmers Market

One of the things that you can do if your kids love this as much as you do is head to the farmers’ market. The great thing about this is that the produce that is being sold has come straight from the farm, and not from anywhere that you may struggle to get on board with. When you purchase from the store, you can never be sure about where the food has come from, how it was raised, whether it was ethically made and so on. But, when you purchase from the farmers’ market, there is a high chance that this is the case.

Of course, the farmers’ market in your area isn’t always going to be on, so if you all love this place then maybe you can travel a little for it. Or, find something like a flea market to purchase other things. 

Go On A Bike Ride

Instead of sitting indoors doing something, or instead of doing something that may be harming the planet, you can consider going on a bike ride. This might not sound very interesting at the moment, and it might take some convincing to get your kids to go on a family bike ride, but it can actually be a lot of fun. You’re not doing anything that could harm the planet, and you can see some parts of where you live that you tend to miss. Who knows how many hidden gems you can find?

You can also pack up a little picnic if you like and take that with you so that you can stop somewhere scenic and have something to eat. Now, we’re not saying that you have to be on the bikes all day because this is going to be a little much for anyone, but a good few hours is amazing for your overall health and fitness. 

Watch Movies, But With Solar Power

If you would rather stay in and just chill out for the evening, then we suggest a movie night. Ensure that all of your snacks come from ethical sources, and then choose a movie that you all love, or that you love the sound of. If you want to watch something but you can’t find it, you can search it online to see where it’s available. For example, you can search for something like where to watch harry potter, and then snuggle down with your family to watch it.

It takes a lot of power to do this, so try to ensure that you are using a renewable energy source such as solar power to power your movie night.

Board Game Night

The last thing that we can think of is perhaps sitting down for a night of board games. You are playing with your family without any kind of tech involved, without any pollutants or anything, so it’s a great solution for a sustainable activity that you can all enjoy. The great thing about board games is that they last for years and they provide hours upon hours of fun for everyone involved, just make sure nobody is taking things too seriously and getting their feelings hurt.

We hope that you have found this article helpful, and now see some of the things that you can do to have a family fun day while looking after the environment. Your fun does not have to be destructive to the Earth, so as many activities as you can think of that don’t involve you contributing to global warming will be a good idea. Sit down and come up with as many ideas as you can, just so that you can ensure that you are never running out of fun things to do with your family.
