Summer is almost over! The bell will soon ring for school to start again & we will all recover from this extended recess period. Money will be spent on uniforms & school supplies. Arguments will occur over bed time & getting out of bed in the morning will be a struggle.

But, before this summer fades into a memory, be sure to spend quality time with your children. They grow like weeds and if you blink, you may miss it.

And don’t worry about breaking the bank paying for fun summer activities. ┬áJust being together is the most important thing.

Creative (and cheap) activities to do with your children:

  • Backyard camping
  • Bubbles
  • Movie night
  • Board Games
  • Hiking
  • Biking
  • Build a fort in the living room
  • Freeze dancing
  • Water Balloon Baseball
  • Host a Neighborhood Potluck
