41 Inexpensive Ideas For...

Now that I have your attention.  It's almost that time of the year, that most kids love and most parents dread.  It's almost SUMMER BREAK!  A way for you to be creative, for your kids daily activities.  Yes there are camps you can put them into, but what if they aren't 'camp kids?'  Or what if you are off with them and just want to spend time together?

Tired of doing the same old trips to the regular attractions?  Below, is a list of 41 different ideas to do with the kids, that are not heavy on the wallets..

  1. Go camping at home in your own back yard.
  2. Have a water gun fight.
  3. Have a fun family movie night. If it is raining, inside works great. If not, head outside for a movie under the stars

  5. Go stargazing with your kids.
  6. Decorate the sidewalks with sidewalk chalk.
