5 things to do with your kids on a fishing day
Memories of our childhood are an important part of who we are for the rest of our lives. The moments we share with our parents, siblings, and other family members strengthen love and union. We must take every opportunity to spend time with our children and make it a memorable one.
Fishing is an ideal activity for this as it creates recreational spaces for the youngest in the house. Thanks to the contact with nature and the enthusiasm for catching fish, it is not only a fun experience, but there are also many things that can be done to enrich the moment even more. Here are 5 fun ideas your boys will love when everyone goes fishing:
1. Study the fish with them
Before fishing, do some research with your children about the flora and fauna of the place where they go fishing. That way, they will feel like they know what to find. You will be surprised by the joy on their faces as they identify the name of the fish they catch. This can be an opportunity to leave them valuable knowledge.
2. Print a card
It is true that technology comes in very handy, but for the little ones learning to use a card can be an enriching experience. Find places for fishing and sailing near you. Have the children identify the various landmarks and topographical features and interact with the map and location.
3. Take lots of photos
Make sure you bring a camera or at least a cell phone so that the kids can capture every moment. Get her interested in every experience: from preparing the fishing rod to catching the fish that has been long awaited. Make them pay attention to the nature around them and record them on photos. Moments are best remembered when captured in pictures. Share the first recordings of the children with your friends on social networks with #FirstCatch.
4. Use fun alternatives
One of the best things about fishing is that it can be combined with other activities. If you’ve been fishing with the guys all day, it’s a good idea to have fun alternatives on hand when they decide to take a break. You can bring a book of your choice, didactic games or board games to play as a family. You will have a great time.
5. Let them take control
This can be an opportunity to build confidence, self-esteem, and determination in boys. If they are fishing in a lake, teach them how to steer the boat. Let them take the helm and drive. You will feel like you are in control and have tons of fun.
And do not forget…
Some important safety measures to keep your children safe. It is best to use small bars for children, blunt hooks, and of course: you should always wear their life jackets. Under no circumstances should you leave children unattended and make sure they are well hydrated and protected from the sun.
You are ready now! This can be the ideal opportunity to create enriching experiences. Your children will no doubt remember fishing well and you can share these memories with them.
The start of your fishing adventure is closer than you think. Learn the basics.
