When ev­ery­one is work­ing full-time and chil­dren are in school, it can be hard to spend qual­ity time to­gether — life can get busy and, to be hon­est, ex­haust­ing.

Nev­er­the­less, it is im­por­tant to spend time to­gether, and it doesn’t al­ways have to cost a lot of money.

Here are some fun ideas:

■ Pic­nic in the park: pack up your favourite snacks and head to beau­ti­ful Peace­haven Park for a play and bite to eat.

■ Movie night in: Or­gan­ise a day where home­work is done early and work is put away for the day and put on a movie for the af­ter­noon, but still early enough for the kids to be in bed at a rea­son­able time.

■ Craft: Have a look on­line and get some ideas to make groovy arts and crafts with your chil­dren.

■ Sport: Kick a ball around the back­yard or go for a swim in the pool if you have one.

■ Gar­den­ing: Pot some plants or plant some seeds.
