What are some healthly family hobbies?

I have a 1yr old and I am a WAHM. My DH works 70-80 hrs a week (for the next 3 months) and we really want to find a good healthy family hobby we can start at lest once a week.

  • My kids go "Geocaching" (I think that's what it's called) with their dad. They use compasses and maps to find things people hide all over (state parks, etc.). They really enjoy it!

  • We hike, ride bike trails, geocache, canoe/kayak, swim, jump on the trampoline. We used to surf or bodyboard when we lived in California. Go camping. We like to be outside doing anything.

  • With a 1 yr old, there isn't a lot you can do that's more than play. But, when your weather permits, starting a garden can be fun. Little ones can drop large seeds into the "clean soil" and pat them in. They can watch the butterflies and worms...just be sure they eat before going out, and have sun protection. Every few days they check the progress of THEIR plants. Even grow some good veggies that they will get to eat when they are old enough. Peas can be picked, shelled, steamed and mashed for tiny farmers. :-)

  • Get involved in a local theatre, it is good for all ages. My family is involved in a theatre and we are all closer and excited about doing something together that inspires us all. You may find your kids or you and spouse have a knack for Drama! LOL You all get to have FUN together! It does keep you busy, but you make so many friends and they all feel like family by the end of the Drama. It can be addictive......LOL....because you find yourself missing all the friends, so you go back and continue to be involved so you can see them.

  • We like to go to different parks and hiking. This morning we spent time making a Snowman and Snow Angels.
