So its the end of the summer holidays and you still have 1 week left to entertain the kids but you now have zero money and can’t face another day in the house.
So what is there to do that won’t cost money!
- Make a den
This can be done in the house, in the garden or even at the park, use blankets, twigs, wood, furniture. All cost free and under your nose.
- Go to the library
They are free and because children never go to them in the modern world they actually really enjoy it. Choose a good book in the children corner and sit and read with your child. Check your local libraries too as they often have free children events to attend.
- Pick some natural resources
Go leaf, stone. wood, stick picking and use the materials to make a picture the following day. This gives you two days worth of activities and if you go to the park, the kids can stop off for a play.
- Do some gardening
Yes, let the children get stuck in and get them pulling them weeds out. As summer finishes you will be glad of the help in the garden ready for winter.
- Have a game of football
This can done in the garden, in the park or go to a football pitch.
- Chalk the path
Play hopscotch, play the old fashioned games we used to play as children. 😉
- Go to a museum
- Look online in your local area
There are lots of free things to do in parks if you look online, you will find various things in your area
Most if all, enjoy your last week with them and have fun!
