Sponsored post - 5 summer holiday ideas for busy families

Today I'm sharing a guest post with some great holiday ideas!

Can’t decide where to go or what to do on your next family holiday? Our list should give you an idea of some alternative options for your trip away.

1. Try a ‘staycation.' For busy families, a ‘staycation’ can be a perfect holiday option because you can forego the hassle of planning a trip abroad when you just don’t have the time. If you’ve always wanted to visit a certain attraction in your town or city or if you want to catch up on family activities, a staycation gives you the opportunity to do so. Plus, you’ll stay in the comfort of your own home which is sometimes the best place to be when you just want to sit back and relax.

2. Rent a cottage Try a home away from home and book a cottage for you and your family. Somewhere like a cottage will have all of the amenities you and your family will need on a short trip away and will usually be set in a location that will allow you to forget all about your busy day-to-day life. Even if you’re unable to ditch the workload, bring your laptop along to a cottage that has Wi-Fi, and you’ll still be able to enjoy time with your family while keeping on top of your deadlines. If you have pets, Mann’s Holidays offer North Wales dog-friendly cottages that allow you to avoid the cost of a kennel or a dog sitter for a week.

3. Learn a new sport Step away from work for a week and use all of that energy to learn a new sport while you’re on holiday. Every year, more and more families are choosing active holidays over lazing on the beach because it provides a sense of accomplishment once you’ve achieved something or learned something new. This can be anything from skiing in France to organising a competitive sports tournament during your staycation. You don’t have to travel far to learn something new.

4. Volunteer Combine fun activities and the sunshine with work that can help others. A volunteering holiday is not only a unique bonding experience, but it can help your children to appreciate how fortunate they are through experiencing another culture and achieving personal growth. This can also be something that your kids can add to their CV. Volunteering holidays can be anything from helping an elephant refuge in Thailand or something closer to home such as helping keep the UK’s beaches clean with The Marine Conservation Society.

5. A family-friendly resort Family-friendly resorts aren’t hard to find and allow you to establish a happy medium between spending time with the kids and letting them do their own thing with kids clubs and large open areas where they can run around safely. A lot of these resorts are year-round destinations making them a perfect option for any family with a jam-packed schedule. Whichever you choose, a family holiday is always a great way to take a break from the monotony of everyday life and spend some quality, unforgettable time with those who mean the most to you.
