Staycation with Children
Traveling with kids
can be hard; so can
having a fun vacation
at home. Don’t let
those worries stop
you from planning a
staycation that even
the pickiest of
children will enjoy.
Parenting Magazine offered
tips to involve your children in
the planning and executing of
fun activities that will be as
scrapbook- and story-worthy
as a trip somewhere.
HELP IN PLANNING
Ask your kids what they
want to do. Encourage them
to come up with different wish
lists than a normal Saturday.
Let each child pick an activity
or give them a certain budget
to spend. Then, let them help
you plan. With older kids, give
them more responsibilities
and more opportunities to
explore what your town has to
HAVE A MOVIE NIGHT —
OR A MOVIE DAY
This is good to have as a
backup in case of bad weath-
er, but it doesn’t have to be a
backup. Set aside time to
watch movies or binge-watch
a TV show. Have movie snacks
like candy and popcorn, stay
in your pajamas, drag mat-
tresses into the living room so
everyone can relax, break out

blankets. Make it extra special
by doing a sing-along to your
favorite musical or letting
your kids invite their friends
slowly. Or, hit the local trails
and go hiking. Bring snacks,
water, bug spray, sunscreen
and take younger kids on easy
trails and older kids on the
more intense nature trails.
If your family is up to it,
plan a long bike or hike (with
length determined by age and
fitness level). It’s a great way to
explore your community more
HAVE A PLAY DAY
Spend all day at the chil-
dren’s museum or a local
amusement or water park. You
can also go park-hopping;
many of us are familiar with
our neighborhood parks but
never explore what others in
the city have to offer. Look for
parks with different types of
playgrounds, nature trails, a
carousel and more. Or, you
can stay home and have a
board game marathon.
Break out the construction
paper, popsicle sticks, glue
and markers and make crafts
with your children. Worried
you’re not creative enough?
Check out your local craft
store for kits to make different
projects. You can also hit the
kitchen with your kids, mak-
ing cookies, pizza, bread or
some other culinary creation
you don’t normally have the
time to undertake.
We’re all part of Umatilla County history.
