You do not have to travel to the beach or to the latest theme park to have fun with the kids. While travelling can be a fun time for the whole family it is not always practical. For example many families with two or more children often have trips to sporting practices like soccer one day for one child and then gymnastics the next for another. Also, not everyone can afford to spend endless money on paying for activities for multiple children. This point is especially true during school holidays when it seems like there are endless days and weeks to stop boredom from setting in which can lead to frustration for whole family. Many will have the luxury of a vacation during this time but even then there will be time to fill either before or after when the schools and colleges are closed until the new term.
