I do not need the headlines to tell me my wallet is getting squeezed–I can feel it every time I head to the grocery store or fill up my car with gas. Trying to stay within our family budget can be challenging, so finding creative ways to have fun with our kids that will not cost us a bundle is a must. Sometimes I find it helpful to be reminded that even the simplest (and cheapest) things amuse our children–crinkling the wrapping paper can be more fun for a toddler than the gift itself or riding a bike in the park may be tops on a child’s list.
At Kidoinfo we write about free / cheap things to do with our kids all the time, but now it will be easier for you to find them. I have set up a new tag; “Free/Cheap” that will identify future posts and eventually tag all the old posts that list “free or almost free” things to do with our kids.
Do you have your own ideas or activities that won’t break the bank–and maybe leave a little extra cash for an iced coffee–you want to share with us? Tell us in the comments below.
