The month of may is almost over and that means only one thing: summer vacation. No longer will children have to go to school for eight hours a day, for the next two or three months. Now, you will have the chance to be around your children pretty much 24/7, unless you can escape to the office or they’re going to summer camp.
But, as the novelty of not having to wake up early wears off after the first week or two, you might be faced with the question of how to keep your kids entertained or busy, while at the same time spending some quality time with them and not breaking the bank.
Here are some ideas from Frugal Dad to consider:
- Set up a lemonade stand
- Make homemade play-doh (it’s easier than you think)
- Bake a cake or other delicious treat
- Build a “fort” in the living room
- Volunteer at some local organizations
- Attend story time at your local library
Looking at the list, there are some fun activities for the eternal kids as well. Think about it, when is the last time you had some fun by building a fort, having a water balloon fight, baking some nice treats, or having a pajama day?
If you can’t remember, then it has been too long. So, whether you have kids or not have some fun this summer and try some new activities.
