Saving money is hard, especially if you have a bunch of kids that require a lot of attention and fun activities. It can all get very expensive and very quickly if you take your kids to an amusement park every weekend or go out for a dinner too. The same goes if you just want to be frugal on an everyday basis.
Short of ideas how to do it and still have fun with kids? Here are some cheap ways how to have a great time with your whole family and forget about the money!
Grow your own fruits and vegetables
One fun way, which I personally really love, is to grow your own vegetable and fruits and include your kids into it. It is not only a fun activity to do to together, but it is educational and it saves money too!
Make a little home garden in your kitchen or plant everything outside and let kids plant everything by their hands. It will make them fall in love with nature and also let them learn the value of work. In the very end, you will not only have something interesting to do every day (because you need to take care of the plants), but in the fall you can enjoy fresh vegetables or fruits! So definitely consider starting your own mini garden at home.
Make your own toys
Another frugal and fun activity for kids is making towns by themselves. It can vary from all kinds of materials to sizes and types – imagination really has no limits here. So let your kids be creative, improve their skills of making stuff and enjoy a great family time too.
