Summer is here, are your kids bored yet? It’s only a matter of time when your kids are clawing at the walls and you’re ready for school to start again. But hopefully these Thrifty tips will help you when you hit that point. These are ideas that are either free or very cheap for you to do with your kids.
1. Library day. Your children may even have some summer reading so the library would be great. A lot of libraries even have summer programs. Check out their calendar and put it on yours. Most programs will be free and tons of fun.
2. Rent a Redbox. This is a much better option than just finding something on TV. This way your family can make an outing out of it and you can choose something together. The kids can get out of the house and Redbox has a lot of promos going on during the summer to get you free rentals.
3. Vacation bible schools. A lot of local churches will do VBS. They are generally free and the kids love them! You can either call around or check out your community calendar, a lot of churches will put their event on there.
5. Clean the floor! Yes, I said clean the floor. Throw your children into their swimming suits, wet the floor, add a little soap and let them slip and slide around. They will have a blast and when it’s done, simply take a rag and wipe it up. Your children have scrubbed the floor having fun and you got a chore done! How fun does that sound!?
