Summer is here!
We moms tend to dread those three words since planning summer activities for ten straight weeks can be overwhelming and seem expensive. But don’t let a budget ruin your family fun.
Here are some suggestions to help make your budget-friendly summer a little more fun:
1. Make going to the park a challenge.
Are the kids tired of the same swings and slides? Create a list of local parks and make it a point to visit one for each week that the kids will be off. Include state parks, beaches, playgrounds, hiking trails, and skate/bike parks for the kids that are beyond swings.
Create a chart to put on the fridge with simple graphics and let them rate the park with thumbs up or thumbs down. Maybe you’ll have a new favorite park when the summer is over!
