This months topic is summertime outings!
We are all about budget friendly activities in the Newman house. Free & inexpensive activities are huge winners out of necessity to keep the budget balanced. Today I want to share 10 of our favorite free/cheap summer outings.
* Library Story Time
Schedule a library trip around Summer story time.
* Local Splash Pads
Several parks have splash pad areas which means using their water instead of running your sprinkler for hours.
* Summer Movie Express
It is hard to pass up a $1 ticket to the movies
* Chick Fil-a Play Place
On those hot days the girls and I sometimes make a trip to Chick Fil-a. Free coffee and a treat to share gives us an hour or two of fun for just a couple bucks.
* Swimming Pools
By far our favorite way to keep cool. Most pools have free swims on certain days of the week or if you plan to frequent the pool this summer check out a pool pass.
*Park Trips/ Walks
Getting outside to play in the summer is always fun but usually hot. We love to make early morning park trips before it gets to hot out.
*Sonic Happy Hour
Half price slushies in the afternoon or milk shakes in the evening. We love to frequent Sonic during the summer.
*Science Centers/ Museums
Check out your area to see what free museums you can find! I have also noticed several science centers offer free times and days to visit.
Some days a trip to the dollar store is a fun adventure for the girls. I usually give them each $1 and watch them try to decide what they want to purchase. Then we come home and play, craft or color.
We are gardeners but we still love to visit and walk around the local farmers market. You never know what you might find there.
There is so much to do and see during the summer and a lot of it can be done without breaking the bank if your willing to look into the best time to go.
Our summer is busy, our summer is fun but our summer is very thought out and planned.
I hope this list gives you some ideas of a few summer outing you could plan with your kids!
