Hobbies That You Can Enjoy With Your Kids

It's not always easy to think of activities that you and your kids will both enjoy. After running them to school and after-school practices all week, you may just want to crash on the couch for the weekend. However, if you can find a hobby that interests everyone in the family, you will all look forward to spending time together making memories.

Horseback Riding

Horseback riding is an outdoor sport that can be done all year round. It doesn't matter if you have one child, ten kids or are bringing the whole neighborhood. This flexibility makes it an ideal family activity. People of all ages enjoy horseback riding because it checks a lot of boxes. It involves horses, which appeals to animal lovers. It is a great workout that challenges your stabilizing muscles and thigh muscles. It is also very relaxing and therapeutic, which is why horseback riding is used for those with mental disabilities and physical ailments. There is even cool horse riding gear for the child who loves to go shopping.


Geocaching is a big scavenger hunt that the whole world is playing. It will give you and your family a reason to explore places you have never been, or have been a million times. All you really need is a GPS receiver or a phone that can be used as one. There are geocaching clubs online that you can join for free. They will give you maps and coordinates of caches in your area, or anywhere you choose. Using the coordinates, players hike to a specific spot to find the prize. Prizes are left by other geocachers. If you get really involved in the hunt, then you can purchase your own caches to hide with prizes of your choosing. This activity is fun for competitive families who like adventures.


Now that cell phones have high-quality cameras, photography can be done by anyone. If you have a teenager at home who loves posting pictures to social media or is simply an artist at heart, then photography is a perfect family hobby for you. This also works for younger children. You can create creative challenges, like take a picture of an animal or something very close up. Maybe everyone tries to take the best cloud picture. Then, you can post them online and ask for friends and family to vote. Children can hang their favorite pictures up in their room, or you can create a memory wall of all the fun photography activities you completed together.
