Even if you don’t live with your children, if you have visitation rights, you’re still able to spend a good amount of time together. During the summer months, there is no shortage of activities to consider.
Here are five of the best ways to spend quality time with your children this summer:
- Take a trip: As long as you don’t violate your custody order and discuss the details with your ex-spouse, this is one of the best ways to give your children an experience they’ll always remember.
- Take a hike: Regardless of where you live, you shouldn’t have any problem finding an area to take a hike. If this doesn’t work for you, a simple walk or jog around the neighborhood can be just as exciting.
- Go on a bike ride: There’s nothing children enjoy more than a bike ride, especially one in an area that they don’t visit often.
- Play sports: From baseball to basketball to golf, there are many sports you can play with your children during the summer months.
- Read a book outdoors: There’s something about reading outdoors that changes the entire experience. Find a cozy spot on your porch or a local park, sit down with your children and read to them.
It’s never easy to deal with the aftermath of a divorce, especially if you have children.
With visitation rights, you can still maintain a strong relationship. And by making a list of activities, you’ll never run out of things to do.
