Reclaim Family Sundays

I love the campaign to ‘Reclaim Family Sundays’ that my favourite magazine The Green Parent hasFamily been running for a while.  I think the main point is to try to move away from the 24-hour consumer culture that we’ve all been sucked into and instead spending at least one day a week just ‘doing stuff’ with our families.

We had been intending to go for a day out today but as it seems to be driving rain, I think we’ll be giving it a miss and spending the day at home instead.

I think the children benefit from just one day that is not hectic and involves all of us being together.  For us, this doesn’t have to be a Sunday – it could be any day depending on work etc and is often more than one day a week.

So, our favourite family activities are:

  • going to the park/woods
  • walking round our local reservoir
  • cycling trips
  • chilling in the garden
  • chilling out at home
  • going to the cinema
  • going swimming

I’ll stop interrupting our family Sunday now but would be interested to hear your favourite family activities?
