Tips for an Enjoyable Day of Mini Golfing with the Kids

July 11th, 2013 Seasonal

The weather is finally warming up all over the U.S., and for many families, this is the time of year when there's plenty of opportunities to enjoy the great outdoors. Getting outside and staying active is vital for parents with small children, and one activity that's enjoyable for both kids and adults is mini golf. This is a fabulous and inexpensive way to spend family time, but you may want to make a few considerations before you and your loved ones hit the links. Here are few tips to keep in mind.

Bring along suntan lotion
Because the vast majority of mini golf courses are outdoors, there's a good chance that you'll be spending multiple hours in direct sunlight. Sunburns can be particularly nasty during this time of year when your family hasn't been exposed to the sun's rays in many months, so make sure you bring along plenty of suntan lotion to keep you and your kids protected.

Invite some friends along
Mini golf is a wonderful social activity, so if you've been looking to arrange a few playdates for your kids, this is an ideal way to get your kids and their friends out of the house and into the spring sunshine.

Pack a lunch
If you're making a day trip out of your mini golf excursion, be sure to pack plenty of drinks, sandwiches and other snacks to give your kids plenty of energy that they'll need out on the course.

Invest in kids' putters
Instead of paying for rentals over the course of the entire summer, your kids may get more involved if you pick up a set of children's putters. Pick out a few in your kids' favorite colors and they'll be enthused about showing off their new clubs during each excursion.
