There’s nothing more fun than taking a day off and simply enjoying it. Since I work at home, it’s a lot easier for me to set things up like this, but do your best! Start to plan a couple of weeks in advance, give your client’s the heads up that you will be heading off this Friday to spend the day with your family. Let the kids know they can invite a friend, especially the older children who may get bored with little siblings in tow. Establish guidelines, rules and expectations that all family members must follow and take a list of what your family may desire to do. Once you have planned for the day off and everything is setup, here are 35 things to do on this day off:

  1. Film a lip sync video
  2. Head off on a walk downtown
  3. Take a nature walk
  4. Visit a local museum
  5. Take a bus to a city to enjoy the sights
  6. Visit family members
  7. Take photos of nature all over your town
