9 Evening Family Adventures

Tim and Kerry Meek are teachers from Nottingham, England who approach parenthood with a sense of adventure. In an era when kids (and parents) often preoccupy their time with one screen or another, the Meeks want their daughters, Amy and Ella, to appreciate time spent with family and in the great outdoors.

But getting their own family active wasn't enough for the Meeks, who have written three books encouraging families to get outside and spend quality time together.

In their latest effort, "50 Evening Adventures," Tim, Kerry, Amy and Ella share 50 of their favorite ideas to get moving between 5 to 9 p.m., so families can squeeze adventures into their weekday routines instead of just killing time between weekends and vacations.

The book splits the adventures into three categories: Go, Do and Eat. We highlighted a few of our favorites, but pick up a copy of the book to see all 50.
