Once a week my daughter hosts a house full of teenagers for game night. I love how she welcomes all of my grandson’s friends into their home, providing a place for them to have good clean fun. She and her husband lovingly prepare snacks for the kids, and sacrifice a good bit of sleep. I’ve heard that these game nights sometimes run into the wee hours of the morning.
I am also glad that my grandson has such a great group of friends. Many of these teenagers either work for my son-in-law at the bowling alley or participate in the bowling league. Living in the city like they do, I know it can be challenging for parents to keep kids out of trouble. Keeping teens busy is just one part of that puzzle.
For Christmas this year, I decided to give the gift of family fun – an experience they could share with Austin’s friends. Since I live in a different state, I used Groupon Local Deals to find an affordable activity for the large group. Since they live in the Tampa Bay area, I had many activities and experiences to choose from. However, as soon as I came across paintball group packages I knew I had found the perfect holiday gift.
The paintball package includes everything their party of eight needs for an afternoon of fun. While this gift is skewed more for the kids, it’s something the whole family will enjoy. Since those teenagers are likely to make mincemeat out of my daughter and son-in-law, I put a small care package together to help them with bumps and bruises they might get while dodging paint bullets. I included some pain reliever, cold packs, and a first aid kit. Of course, I also included the Groupon Voucher.
Creating memories and spending time with the people we care about is what the holiday season is about. Groupon Local Deals has helped me to give my daughter and her family the gift of family fun this holiday season.
