With you all sitting at home watching the rain bounce off the windows, you could try switching on the Wii or another games console where you can get multi-player games, and challenge the whole family. The Wii is perfect for this as you can get everyone bowling, playing golf of tennis – throwing a competitive element in with plenty of fun, (especially when your golf-mad Dad keeps finding the rough).
Finding New Apps
The majority of families will own at least one smartphone or tablet computer between them, so go in search of some of the apps you might not have played before, or even heard of. Browsing the free downloads is a great starting point because you can establish whether or not it’s of interest to you without being out of pocket. Then, if it is, you can upgrade to the paid for version. There are plenty of great free gaming apps available, like Draw Something to name just one, which lets you get creative and keep your friends and family guessing.
There are always tons of new films coming out. The latest Batman film has just been released, and who doesn’t love a good comic-turned-silver-screen film? With plenty of rom-coms available too and movies for kids, you’re sure to find something that takes your fancy – or something you might not have thought would be your thing. With family trips to the cinema proving to be increasingly expensive though, (like everything nowadays), searching the net for promo codes could allow you to get discounted entry, or passes to come back regularly.
At the end of the day it’s all about using your imagination. Go back to your childhood and remember some of the best games you played – the majority were probably made up by you and your friends. Put your mind to the test and take advantage of the great outdoors, amazing new technologies and good old British summer weather!
