Fun. FOR CHEAP~priddymomma

 Hey guys!  We're talking this week about Cheap Fun!  Hey.  We have to cut corners somewhere, right?  Sometimes the cheaper ideas are the best ideas.  The point is to enjoy yourselves; not see how much money you can burn or how many people you can impress.  Here are some ideas to get you started.

Get Active!
  • Take a walk
  • Go for a hike
  • Enjoy a bike ride
  • Ice skating
  • Climb a tree
  • Go swimming
  • Play with a Frisbee
  • Go sledding
  • Badminton
  • Corn Hole
  • Snowball fight
  • Shoot some hoops
  • Kick a ball.  Or a can!
  • Bowling
  • Ice skating
  • Family Olympics-with any events you can imagine!
  • Yoga, Zumba, Tai Chi, Karate…lots of things you enjoy you can also share with your family

Seasonal Fun!
  • Carve pumpkins
  • Visit an orchard
  • Deck the halls
  • Dye eggs

Get Out of the House!
  • Go camping
  • Wash the car
  • Play in the sprinkler
  • Play in the snow
  • Go fishing
  • Fly kites
  • Go see a play at a local theater or high school
  • Take the kids to a playground

Have Fun at Home!
  • Take silly photos
  • Make ice cream sundaes
  • Invite friends or family over for a themed movie night/afternoon
  • Cook something (cupcakes, cookies, bread, pizza….)
  • Have a dance party and see who can make up the silliest dance
  • Play video games!  There are games that get you moving these days, so why not?  Besides, kids love being better at something than mom and dad for once!
  • Paint or color 
  • Play dough-trust me.  Adults love play dough too. 
 What inexpensive things do you like to do with your family?  There are hundreds of ways to save money out there!  Looking for more ideas?  Leslie will be posting on Saturday, so keep an eye out for that.  Thanks for reading!  See you next week.  :)
