  • Our local library has museum passes that allow you to get in to many kid-friendly attractions for a very reduced rate. There are places that are over $20 a ticket that only cost $2 with the pass. We have a membership to a local petting farm and water park which isn't exactly cheap at $160 for the year but of course each individual visit is 'free' once you've paid for the membership. The playground is of course free and we have a decent one inside the mall too for days when the weather sucks. The library is a big favorite too, they have coloring tables and a preschool play area in the kids room so we can happily spend a couple of hours there doing different things.

  • The library.
    skating is only 3 dollars a child.
    swimming is only 350 for people over 5.
    unless you go to the lake. then its 5 bucks for the whole van for an all day trip. (plus whatever the costs in gas)
    We have a "water park" of sorts here that is free!

  • Taking long walks. Playing in our pool. Playing in our back yard. My son just loves running up and down the driveway, especially if he thinks I'm chasing him. We also like going to the Zoo.
