Today, I’m here to tell you that you can have fun time without spending money.
Have you ever been in situation with your kids during break time when your kids were telling you that everybody else was going away for the holiday. This can be a real problem over the summer break. Especially if you don’t have enough money to travel.
So what should you do? Turn on your imagination. If you have a pool at the backyard, perfect. Turn it into the Caribbean sea! Put different plants and flowers around. Buy black pirate hat for your kids. Hide a “treasure” and let them run around pretending they are on a pirate ship as pirates. You can be Captain Jack Sparrow)
If you cannot afford the transformation of your own backyard into the tropical paradise. There is still some fun stuff you can do with the kids. What about the local parks in your area. They are free and open to the public. They might have a playground, field or track. Something to let the kids get out and burn up some energy.
Or now during the winter time go outside to build a snowman with your kids. His nose is made of an old carrot or even old cracker. His eyes can be created out of chestnuts or bubble gum. And why not make his mouth from colored gummy bears. The kids will have a blast and your wallet smiles too.
You should actively engage kids with whatever it is you are going to do. Discuss your plans with them, or even let them decide what low-cost activity to choose. You’ll be surprised how many ideas your kids have.
Choosing a low cost activity it is also an important lesson. You are showing your kids than you don’t always have to spend money in order to have a fun time with your family.
