Summer is here! The kids are ready for the fun to BEGIN.


Here are some budget-friendly activities to do with the kids this summer.


Load the kids up for a budget-friendly beach getaway. Bring your snacks, sunscreen, towels, and spend the day at the beach.

Snow Cones

The kids will surely enjoy going to get snow cones together as a family. Plus, it’s a great way to cool off this summer.

Cook Together

How many times have you been in the kitchen and the kids ask, “can I help”, usually you say no? Letting them help teaches them life skills and keeps them entertained.

Water Balloons

I know it takes forever (in most cases) to fill up water balloons and about 10 seconds of play. However, the kids will surely enjoy this outdoor summer activities


Sprinklers are a great way to cool off and enjoy the great outdoors with the kids.

Kiddie Pool

Buy a kiddie pool and set it up in the front yard. They’re rather cheap, and keep the kids entertained.


Most kids like the zoo, and it doesn’t cost too much. Make a day out of it with the kids, it’s sure to tire them out.


Bring the kids to a local aquarium to learn about the sea life.


The museum is a great learning opportunity. The kids will appreciate this, and you will appreciate the quiet time.


Gather up some items in your home that you no longer need or use. Teach the kids to give back to the community.


Volunteer with the kids at a farmers market, SPCA, or Food Bank. It teaches the kids to give back and makes good use of their summer.


Go to a local hotel with a swimming pool and enjoy a small family getaway. We all need a break from the everyday hustle and grind.

Movie Theater

The kids are sure to enjoy going to the movies. Go see a movie together as a family, these are the moments they will remember forever.

Trampoline Park

Take the kids to a local Trampoline company, if you have one in our area they are sure to LOVE it!

Road Trip

Take a road trip a few hours away. Go someplace you’ve always wanted to go, or just check out a new restaurant or park.

Camp at Home

Camp in the backyard, or even the living room as a family. The kids will love it, and so will you. It’s absolutely FREE.

Game Night

The family game night is a fun way to get everyone involved in something together.

Movie  Night

Bring your pillows, blankets, and snacks to the living room and watch your favorite movies together.
