Budget Friendly Fun things to do with the Family this Weekend

Looking forward to having a great time with your family this weekend? Sure, you can. There are budget friendly things you can do with the kids this weekend. It’s time to get creative. Let’s explore together!

Volunteer

Volunteer

Explore some ways for your youngsters to contribute to their community. For instance, they can get an opportunity to help spruce up public spaces. Toddlers can mess around in the dirt or pull up weeds (with supervision), and older kids can plant seeds and bulbs. You may also take your kids to visit the elderly at a retirement home.

 

Get Cooking

Cooking

Kids especially love making pie crusts, biscuits, and pizza, because they can squish the dough with their fingers. Watching yeasty dough rise and then punching it down is especially entertaining. Teach them how to make some really great meals

 

Take up a New Hobby

Learn a new skill with your child, such as horseback riding, pottery, or ballet. Children find it affirming to see you struggling to master new skills, just as they are.

 

Go On a Picnic

Find a local park or recreation area and bring food and games for a day of fun. Play Frisbee, horseshoes, volleyball, soccer, or take a short hike.  You might be able to swim or fish, rent a paddle boat, or find a comfortable spot to read a book.

 

Go to a Karaoke Bar

Sing to your favorite songs in the company of your family. Order food, have a beverage and make a night of it.

 

Head to the Farmer’s Market

Farmer's market

Meet local farmers and see where your food comes from. Many markets have local honey, lots of fresh food, baked goods, whimsical gifts, and a great opportunity to meet new people.
