10 Fun, Inexpensive, Summer Activities to Do With Your Kids

June 26, 2012

When it comes to spending valuable time with the kids this summer, you do not have to take out your wallet to create memorable moments. There are several creative ways to enjoy a beautiful summer day without spending too much.

1. Bake – Baking is a fun way to test your skills in the kitchen and be rewarded with a treat in the end!

2. Barbeque Smores – Get out the barbeque and have your very own smores and campfire.

3. Outdoor Movie Night – Bring out the small television or laptop and enjoy watching movies under the stars. Don’t forget the blankets!

4. Picnics – Pack lunch. Then go to the park or even your own backyard to have a unique meal with your friends and family.

5. Backyard camping – Set up the tent in the backyard and have a camping day of your own!

6. Water Day – Bring out the water balloons, slip ‘n’ slide, or even the sprinklers to cool off and have fun on hot, summer days.

7. Go on a Hike – Go to a local hiking trail and enjoy the scenery while staying active.

8. Build a Fort – Indoors or outdoors, collect sheets, pillows, chair, and whatever else you can find to create a very original fort.

9. Make Play Dough – Get a little messy and make your own Play Dough! Recipe here

10. Volunteer – Take the free time and give back to the community-visit an elderly  neighbor or offer to babysit your neighbor with kids who may needs a break.

Hope your summer is off to great start!

Let me know what fun an inexpensive things you do with your kids.
