When life is practically hijacked by work, responsibilities, commitments and just plain adulting, it's hard to spend time with kids apart from the usual homework duty, which, let’s admit it, is not creating ‘happy’ memories. So, we present to you 10 ways in which you can spend some much-needed quality time with your little ones that don’t involve amusement parks!
1. Spend A Day At India Gate
Every Delhiite has a childhood memory involving India Gate, it's just such a ‘Delhi’ thing to do! So, pass on this legacy to your kids as well, and plan a fun day for them here. Pack a box heaped with snacks and chilled juice boxes, throw some bhelpuri together, soak in some sun and even buy them candy floss if they want. Play, run, talk - just make some good memories for them to reminisce about later!
Where | India Gate - Rajpath Marg, India Gate
2. Sign Up For A Class @ Dipti Gupta Pottery Classes
Get your hands dirty and channel all your collective artistic instincts as you indulge in some 'potter-magic' (sorry, we couldn’t resist) with this great hobby which can help you unwind while giving shape to your little one’s creative side. Also, no matter how the final product that you make together looks like, it will always have a special place in your homes and hearts!
3. Go Horse Riding @ Children’s Riding Club
This equestrian sport not only offers good exercise for your body but is also great for bonding with your children. Just imagine - riding off into the sunset with your little one right by your side.

It's also said to help with confidence building for kids, so another reason to giddy-up!
