Splash Pad: A Great Place To Spend Quality Time With Your Kids
Spending time with my kids is very important to me. For most parents, it is important to them as well. I have a lot of things that keep me busy. From speaking at local events, meeting up with my clients and being a content creator. I promised myself, no matter how busy life gets I will always find time to spend with my kids.
Just me and them.
You see, it’s great to have both parents participating in certain activities but I love spending quality time with them. To be honest, they love it too. Even though things can get crazy busy I am grateful that I live in a neighborhood that has a resort-style amenities center. We have our very own splash pad, basketball court, and playground. With having all of this there is no excuse to get away for a couple of hours to watch my kids play. If we are lucky, we can get the entire splash pad to ourselves!
That’s a win-win!
Today I wanted to share a few things that I love to do to spend quality time with my kiddos. I hope this list will give you a little inspiration. Also remember, your kids just want to spend time with you. It doesn’t have to be fancy or expensive. The only requirement of you is to be PRESENT and enjoy the moments and memories you make with your kids during this special time. I only pulled my phone out to take the pictures for this post. Then I put it away to watch them play and enjoy the moments with them.
Quality OVER Quantity.
- Local Splash Pad-If you are unsure about where you can find a splash pad, just search Google for “splash pads near me”. You can also make a day trip out of it if you are interested in visiting other surrounding area splash pads.
- Local Park/Playground– The great thing about a local park or playground is that they are FREE! Your kids will have a blast running around and playing on all of the playground equipment. We also like to visit the playground that is close to my sons’ school. It is convenient and the kids enjoy it.
- Trip To The Local Ice Cream Shop. One of our favorite places to go for ice cream is Bruster’s Ice Cream. Another favorite is Twistee Treat Ice Cream
