Frugal Summer Fun, part 3

Continuing on with my series on frugal summer fun, here are some ideas for things to do around town:
  • See if your city has a free splash pad for kids to play in. If not, there is probably a fountain somewhere that lets kids play in it.
  • Many malls have a play area
  • Go to the library
    • Ours has a play area, story time, music time, and arts and crafts, all free and for various ages
    • Participate in the summer reading program…some are much better than others
    • Check out movies for free!
  • Go on small hikes in the morning or evening
    • Hike to a lake and swim
  • Walk around a local university…many have great grants for landscaping and are beautiful this time of year
    • We used to ride our bikes around the campus close by, and visited the duck pond often
  • Go to local parks
    • Explore and find new parks
  • Attend Lowe’s Build and Grow, Home Depot, Michael’s, and Toys R Us workshops
    • Many require registration beforehand
  • Go to Borders or Barnes & Noble for reading time
  • Volunteer for service projects
For more fun around town, come back tomorrow!
