Inside: 30+ low-cost summer activities for the family. This is a great way to keep the summer boredom down and money in your wallet. 


Now that summer is here and money is tight for everyone it’s time to find some cheap or free activities to do with the family. I’m all about low-cost summer activities since everything seems to be so expensive.

I don’t know about you but my kids like to stay busy. Their version of busy is doing something out and about that costs money. They love going to our local trampoline indoor park or even to a movie. Those are super fun but they cost money!

Luckily my youngest loves doing some things at home like making a fun summer drink ,  no-cook playdough, or playing fun scavenger hunt games like treasure run.
