Money Saving Summer Activities

There are many families who just can not afford a summer family vacation so what do you do to entertain the kids all summer long? With resources and some simple planning, you can ensure that your kids beat that summer boredom while saving you money!

With search engines like Google there are many activities that are happening in your neighborhood that cost very little or no money at all. Here are just some activities that you can do with your children that will create great memories.

Free Splash Pads – Pack some sunscreen and a picnic and head to the nearest splash pad in your neighborhood. For extra fun, visit the dollar store and get some spray bottles that your children and their friends can use to play with at the waterpark.

Beach Day – Plan to get the kids up early and hit the beach. Pack some sand toys and a Frisbee and have a fun day out in the sun. This is a sure fire way to have kids smiling, laughing AND snoozing before dark.

Have your own drive in movie – Pick a night that calls for a clear night sky and invite some of the neighbors for a night out under the stars. Bring your television set outside, decide on a blockbuster movie, set up some blankets and get ready for the movie to start. Do not forget the popcorn!

Go for a hike – There are many trails that are perfect for a hike. Pack some sesame seeds for the chipmunks and off you go. This is a great opportunity to get some photos of the kids enjoying nature.

Festivals – Summer is great for lots of festivals that offer free entertainment. Search online for any events that are lined up for your area.

Library – Most libraries have dedicated story hours before bed at no cost to you. Wash up the kids, put them in their PJs and settle them down with story hour getting them settled and ready for bed.

On every trip make it a point to take pictures and have children collect items specific to each trip so that on those rainy days the kids can start creating their own summer scrapbook. Visit the nearest dollar store to get some stickers, sparkles, glue and other materials that can be used to create an artistic scrapbook that can be enjoyed for years to come.

The best part of this summer will not only be how much you actually saved this summer but the memories you have created for you and your family.

Happy Summer Time!
