  • Since I live 20 mins from a few different beaches. I take my kids to the beach and there are a lot of fun free activities for them to do.

  • we do a playground crawl. (it costs gas of course. and a few snacks and bottles of water and sunscreen all of which I already have on hand)

    we pick a day and spend the whole time exploring other towns schools, parks, playgrounds. where's the best slides, swings, rock walls, etc. it's a tradition since birth almost and it's something we're already looking forward to :)

  • We got an above ground pool last summer and let me tell you that was the BEST money we ever spent. We spent almost the entire summer out in the pool and best of all (aside from the chlorine etc) it was 100% free. We also set up for picnics and all of that along with the pool. We had a great time.
    Other things we do is check with the local movies. Ours offers free movies for kids twice a week. They are usually last years kids movies but its 100% free also.

  • WE go to a lot of the public fountains and this year will spending a lot of time at the zoo since we got a family pass for Christmas. We also look into local free events such as festivals and outdoor movies None of that cost us anything, well, the family pass cost something originally but it paid it's self off in the second visit.
