Today I have a Guest post for you, and it's a good one!
By Kristl of The Budget Diet
Plan a field trip every week this summer! Here’s how…
Start by taking your children to the library to find some books about your town. When we first moved to Houston, we discovered a book called “147 Fun Things To Do In Houston”…this was our go-to guide for summer fun!
Do a simple web search: free things to do in (my city). You’ll be amazed what comes up!
Let each child make a list of what they would like to see & do! Set a budget limit!
Think beyond museums and amusement parks…think budget friendly fun like: a visit to the farmer’s market, berry picking, check out different area playgrounds & rate them, take a tour of an area factory, see a free
outdoor concert or play, take a hike or be a tourist in your own town.
Pack a picnic lunch wherever you go to keep your field trip budget friendly.
Let me know where your field trips take you this summer!
