To the mom who asked for things to do with your kids and only had $50. I wrote out a long post then it poofed :(
Here are some things you can do with your kids for $50 or less.
Go see a movie. Don't buy snacks, a mom and 3 kids should be able to get in for less thant $50.
Or some stay at home ideas:
Movie Marathon Day.Rent some movies, buy some popcorn and watch movies in your jammies
Game Day: Break out the board games and puzzles and spend the day playing. If you don't have any, you can take the $50 and buy some. It's a great investment!
Camp out in the house. Make a tent in the living room, eat camp food, turn off the electronics and tell ghost stories (or age appropriate stories), and sing camp songs
One thine we do here is Carnival Day. We have a Wii and the Carnival Games disk. We eat Carnival food (corn dogs, cotton candy) and play carnival games all day. If you don't have that game and have a Wii or other game system, I believe I paid about $20 for it.
If you want to do something educational, pick a country and research it together, then cook foods from that country, and find music form that country, or you could even find one of their holidays and celebrate it.
Most importantly, ignore the assholes who were on your case about being low income. At least you are wanting to spend time with your kids
