39, married 14 years, 2 kids 10/12, a little over 1 year into MAP.
One area that needs improvement in my MAP is planning fun family activities. We usually have 2-3 days a month that are open for anything. When I take the initiative to fill these few days with fun stuff I get pretty good gas mileage.
Short day trips and low to moderate cost planned family outing activities have been:
- indoor rock climbing
- ice skating
- local tourist trap attractions
- local state parks
- gem stone hunting at a local spot
- local cave tours
A year in and I'm looking for some fresh ideas (without forgetting the first rule which is don't do stuff that makes you want to kill your wife or kids).
Does anyone care to share what have been your most enjoyable low to moderate cost family activities?
