Create a vacation at home! There are plenty of benefits to taking a staycation for families and couples, as a budget-friendly way to enjoy holiday vibes at home!
If you want to know how to make the most of a staycation with your family, consider the following guide that will have your kids laughing all “staycation’ long—all without leaving your home.
Choosing a staycation theme can be a bit overwhelming, but a little planning can go a long way towards finding the perfect staycation theme or idea for you and your kids.
Why not ask your kids what they might want to do for a staycation?
Ask them if there are any specific countries or themes they would be interested in recreating for the staycation. This can help you springboard towards more unique staycation ideas.
After all, a staycation with kids should be something they genuinely enjoy!
Here are some fun general staycation themes:
Since travel is out of the picture, it’s time to bring travel into your home! An international theme staycation based on another country—such as Italy, Japan, France, etc, can be a great platform for a wide variety of ideas. It’s also a perfect way for kids to learn about a new country.
For example, visiting “France” can begin with a traditional recipe for a French breakfast; watching children’s cartoons in French; taking a virtual tour of France’s famed Palace of Versailles on a tablet or smart TV; creating a bucket list of Paris attractions for your future real visit, and ending the day with an attempt at homemade macarons.
For Mexico, you may enjoy a day of tacos, quesadillas and nachos, non-alcoholic mojitos and take your afternoon siesta before an afternoon of Day of the Dead inspired crafts and dress ups.
You may need to do a little planning before you kick off your staycation if you have the time and stock up on themed supplies such as international foods and decorations.
For example, with a Polish themed staycation, you won’t want to forget the pierogi!
Crafts involving your theme are also a wonderful way to add fun to your staycation, all while teaching your child more about your staycation destination.
There are plenty of fun activities you can do at home, from indoor activities to backyard adventures, like a scavenger hunt. No need to spend a thing!
And don’t forget the music! Spotify is a great music streaming service with plenty of international playlists!
And remember to take plenty of staycation photos!
You can share them online with friends and family. Or print them out to place them in your treasured family albums.
For whatever reason you are opting to have a fun staycation with kids at home, there is no reason you can’t make it just as memorable as your vacations. What a wonderful, budget-friendly way to turn your home into a weekend adventure destination for the whole family!
