Here you will find the 4 most enjoyable games for this weekend.

  1.  Musical chairs

The most famous and fun game of all time is musical chairs, for the equipment you will need some chairs (one less than the players) and something that plays music (a laptop, a radio, etc.). The first thing that you have to do is arrange the chairs into a circle, the rules of the game are simple and clear. The music starts to play, and the players have to dance around the chairs when the music stops all the players must find a chair to sit, and the player who doesn’t find a chair to sit, the player is out. This game is better if you have a big family.

  •  Design your own minigolf course

If you are living in London, then you are very lucky because you can design your own mini-golf course in Plonk Mini-Golf. This is a really creative activity that you can enjoy with your children because you can design your own minigolf course using many imaginative and colourful objects and at the same time you can have fun playing mini-golf. This will be a remarkable experience for your kids that they will never forget.

  •    Simon Says

This game is one of the cosy nights around the fireplace. The plot is simple: one person in the family, named Simon, is going to tell the other players what to do but he must use the phrase “Simon says…” The players must follow the instructions which Simos says to them. In the case that Simon says, “Touch your leg”, without starting the phrase with “Simon says” and the player follows the instruction, he is out. The last one that stays in the game is the winner

  • Hot potato

This is a brilliant game to play with your children outdoors. The rules are simple, you and your kids have to sit in a circle, with a ball. While the music is playing you have to throw the ball to each other if someone drops the ball he is out of the game, if the music stops and you are still grabbing the ball you are losing the game.

What is more exciting than a trip to a new destination? What is more beautiful than a new adventure? The answer is nothing else than a summer trip. Summer is here and most people have started to pack their stuff for their summer holidays. One of the most important things that you have to keep in your mind while you are packing is your sunglasses. 

If you don’t have any, don’t panic, it’s just shopping time. Don’t forget that sunglasses are the best summer eye protection, especially during the hot months. Of course, sunglasses have to do a good job but at the same time, they have to look good on your face.

In the case that you have any idea of how to find the best sunglasses for you, here you will find the 4 tips.

Keep reading and your future self will be thankful for your today’s decisions. 

  1. Comfort

The first and the most crucial tip to keep in mind before choosing your new pair of sunglasses is to choose a pair that is comfortable and fits you perfectly, not to press your nose or be too loose. So, before making your final decision, take some time to try many glasses. Ask the personnel of the store their opinion of which one fits you better or call a friend who you trust to join you in shopping.

  • Ask the opinion of an eye doctor

The second tip is to visit an eye doctor before going shopping. An eye doctor, such as arisvisioncorrection.co.uk, can examine your vision and tell you if your eyes are alright. In case he finds out that you have an eye problem like myopia or hypermetropia, he will suggest you buy a pair of sunglasses with special lenses. The doctor is the perfect person who is going to give you the ideal opinion of what pair of sunglasses is just for you. Also, after this eye appointment, you will be completely sure that you will enjoy your trip with perfect vision.

  • Durability

The third tip is about the durability of your new pair of sunglasses. The truth is that a good and quality pair of glasses will cost you much more money than a fake one. But if you make the right choice, this pair is going to last for much more trips. You don’t have to buy the most expensive sunglasses in the entire world, but don’t be stingy about this purchase. 

  • Being nice to your face

Last but not least, try to find a pair of sunglasses which will be nice for your face and fits your whole style. Don’t buy sunglasses only because they have the best quality or because your doctor says that’s good for you. Try to find a pair of glasses which are quality but at the same time fit on your face and make you look nice. If you don’t feel comfortable with the way that this pair makes you look, you will avoid wearing them all the time.

The tour operator is the proper person that will be able to make this trip a unique experience for everyone.
