Days out - age gaps

(8 Posts)

Just wondering if any one has any ideas for days out as a family for us, I have a ds who is 12, and two dds aged 6 and 0.

Not so much for the baby as doesn't care where she is yet but for the other two. They are obviously interested in different things due to the ages and gender and I often end up taking them out separately or we will do two days (one appropriate for each) but the other moans the whole time.

Any suggestions welcome.

What kind of things do they like? I never really found days out that much of a problem i have similar age gaps any whinging resulted in going home not even joking they were marched home

Mine have a similar gap. The best things I found to do were bowling and a burger or the occasional cinema trip to see something they both liked. It is tough though.

Must admit I've never had much of a problem but my age gap is smaller. What sort of day trips are you doing and how often?
