  • where do you live?
    When my niece turned 10 last year I was broke but I've always done something special with each of them. She LOVES the water - she's like a dolphin in the ocean! Instead of spending money I took her to a small, quiet cove in Laguna Beach that has crystal clear water and amazing swimming. We swam out and around some rocks and into the "inaccessible" cove on the other side where there were "caves' (think treasure island where you can walk under the cliffs at low tide to another beach. The water was super warm in August and we spent all day digging for sand-crabs, walking the beaches looking for shells and sea-glass and building sand castles complete with flowers "growing" up the towers.
    She still talks about it and it cost me nothing but time!

  • a few balloons from the dollar store, a homemade cake with a theme that she'd like...
    a sleepover (make some pigs in blankets or something cheap to feed a few friends)
